The Falcons are beating up the NFC South. They took it to a very good Saints team and crushed a very average Panthers team, and now they get their easiest on-paper matchup yet with a home game against the Buccaneers. Can they keep the good times rolling? Will they?

That depends on whether the defense holds. I don’t worry about the crummy Buccaneers secondary stopping the Falcons, who could have their single best passing effort of the year against Tampa Bay, at least in terms of efficiency. I do worry about the defense going back in the toilet out of the blue and allowing Jameis Winston to beat them, something he hasn’t historically struggled to do. Winston’s numbers against the Falcons are many, many times better than they are against, say, the Saints, which could lead to a problem.

On paper, though, this is the easiest matchup in months. Let’s see if they can take advantage of it, and here’s how you’ll watch.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Week 12

When: Sunday, November 24, 1 p.m. EST

Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia

Channel: FOX

Announcers: Dick Stockton, Mark Schlereth, Jennifer Hale

Streaming: FOXSportsGo

Radio: 92.9 The Game; XM 228

Key Questions: Will Atlanta shut down Jameis Winston the way they shut down Drew Brees and Kyle Allen? Can the Falcons get their struggling ground game going given that the Bucs have a great run defense and Dirk Koetter won’t abandon it? Will being at home improve Atlanta’s fortunes or damage them after two great road wins?

Prediction: Falcons win, 31-21
