Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds, Prediction, and Pick
This week we have an NFL match-up between one of the teams with the best records in the NFL against one of the hottest teams out there as well. The Atlanta Falcons are sitting at 9-1 overall and are atop the NFC South right now, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 6-4 and have won four straight games to get to this point as well. If the Buccaneers want to continue their comeback in an attempt to push to the top of the NFC South and catch the incredibly hot Falcons, they'll have to win this game on their home field on Sunday afternoon. It's not going to be easy though, as the Falcons played probably one of the worst offensive games that I've seen them play in a while last week and still pulled out a win against the Arizona Cardinals. The Bucs on the other hand were all about out of their game against the Carolina Panthers last week with 4 minutes left, but made an impressive comeback to win by a touchdown in overtime.
The Falcons high powered offense features Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, and Roddy White, and while Ryan struggled last week with five picks, I fully expect him to bounce back in a big way this week. Jones and White should both be in for big days also, and I think that the powerful offense is going to be in full affect this weekend. On top of this though, the Falcons defense has been improved over the past years, and with the slow starts that the Bucs have had in past weeks, I don't think that the Falcons are going to let them catch back up if they dig themselves into a hole.

The Buccaneers offense has been great late in games, but the question remains of whether their passing offense can get it going early on in the game. Doug Martin looks like he has the potential to be a stud running back in this league, and watching him go up against this Falcons defense should be fun. Martin has pretty much done everything that has been asked of him over the past few weeks, so expect them to try to rely on him early in this game.

The Buccaneers are definitely getting an edge here due to the fact that they are at home here, but it's going to be tough going against this Falcons offense who had a bit of a wake up call last week after almost going down to the Cardinals on their home field. I think that Matt Ryan is going to bounce back in a big way and could be in for a huge game as well. With that being said, I simply don't think that the Buccaneers are going to be able to keep up with the Falcons offense in this one and that the Falcons will win it by between a field goal to a touchdown.
