Falcons vs Bucs 2015: Who to Watch Against Tampa Bay

New, comments

Hey, maybe this time it won't be so bad. Here's who you should watch in Atlanta's BREAK-OUT game.

Justin Freaking Hardy, Wide Reciever

It's the moment we've all been waiting for. The arrival of rookie receiver Justin Hardy is finally here, and it's coming at a time that the Falcons' offense is stalling. Hardy is making his first start after Leonard Hankerson's unfortunate hamstring injury, but while he's resting, Hardy will get some much needed time in live action, regular season football. Here's to hoping he's all we've asked for.

Jalen Collins, Cornerback

Collins played 37 out of 54 possible snaps last week, and is beginning to warrant the playing time of a 2nd round selection. Coming in on 3rd downs, Collins played a sizable role in keeping the Titans to a total of 7 points last Sunday. At 6'2", he'll be key in locking down Tampa's 6'5" wideouts.

Adrian Clayborn, Defensive End

Clayborn will get a shot against his old team this weekend by facing Tampa Bay, and whether they let you know or not, there is always a little extra motivation going into gameday. The Falcons will look to get their pass rush churning and hopefully get these guys some confidence before the bye week. The Bucs offer a great opportunity to Clayborn and company for that to happen.

Who will you be keeping an eye on this week? What are you expecting from the guys above?
