Every game is an important game for the Atlanta Falcons, who are attempting to keep up with the ascending Carolina Panthers in the NFC South. If you happen to play a divisional rival and stomp them into jelly, so much the better.
I'm not saying that's what will happen today when the Falcons take on the Buccaneers, but they've got a good shot at moving to 7-1 at home against a team with a reeling defense. Staying ahead of the rest of the NFC playoff field and keeping up with Carolina until they stumble is, of course, imperative.
