Buccaneers 16, Falcons 13


The pass rush
They played angry. Brian Price and Gerald McCoy are going to be scary good eventually and Dekoda Watson knows how to finish.

The opportunistic defense
You gotta love 3 turnovers when your offense has an off day.

The passing game, for the most part
It was out of sync and Freeman threw 2 picks. Freeman’s last two-pick game was November 7th and his last game with a -2 TD-to-INT ratio was December 27th, 2009. Freeman did run for a touchdowns.

The Falcons red zone offense
Matt Ryan looks to have regressed a little in his third year and they did not get in the end zone much in two of their first three games.

The late hit by William Moore
He’ll get fined for the shoulder-to-helmet tackle but the Buccaneers should have been handed 15 yards.

LOOKING AHEAD: Tampa Bay is looking at two interesting possibilities on Monday Night Football: a past-his-prime Kerry Collins or a never-started-or-thrown-more-than-28-completions Curtis Painter. Now, option 3 and 4 are still out there: Carson Palmer and David Garrard. The Bucs are a more talented team than the Colts, period. Better running back, better secondary, better quarterback. They should be 3-1 before they go to London.
