Predict the final score of Falcons vs. Buccaneers in Week 8

New, comments

The 6-1 Atlanta Falcons and the 2-4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet up in the Georgia Dome.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons are gearing up for a 7-1 start, which would easily be one of the best in franchise history, and their primary obstacle is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the Georgia Dome. This would seem to set up well for Atlanta, but we've felt that way for several games this season.

There will be understandable wariness here, in other words, but this is a very winnable game for Atlanta. I'm leery of being overly optimistic after the last two weeks, but I'll go on record predicting the Falcons win this one 35-27, with the Buccaneers finding some genuine success passing the football. That would be plenty satisfying for me, at least.

As always, used The Crowd's Line widget below to predict the score of the game, and then tell us in the comments why you chose the score you did.
