#Falcons snatch another defeat from the hands of victory. Lose to #Bucs 23-19 #ATLvsTB

6 Dec

The incredible run of futility continues for Atlanta. The team again found a way to lose a game that was theirs to win. We say TEAM because there were multiple culprits in the Falcons 4 point loss to the Buccaneers.

  1. The Offensive line-The once vaunted ground game sputtered again even with the return of Devonta Freeman totaling just 64 yards. QB Matt Ryan was pressured often, and sacked 3 times
  2. The Run Defense. Clearly the lofty #1 defense ranking was a mirage. Adrian Peterson had 158 last week, and Tampa rushed for 166 this week
  3. Bad tackling. See #2 and click HERE to see the back breaking Jameis Winston 20 yd run on 3rd and 19 in the 4th quarter
  4. Matt Ryan ended an otherwise good day for him with another INT to end Falcons comeback hopes

This team will have to call on ALL of their ‘intestinal fortitude’ to salvage what’s left of the season to at least finish at 8-8. With 2 or the 4 games remaining vs Carolina, the NFL’s best team, the task is daunting.
