The Falcons carved out an early lead in this one and grabbed two interceptions. If that was all I told you, you’d assume they were winning at the half. Unfortunately, that’s not even close to the case.
The Falcons are down 19-10 thanks to poor coverage, awful pass protection, and a game Bucs team. The last two weeks were brilliant and needed, but this game has thus far served as a reminder that buying into this current Falcons team is a fool’s erand.
There’s a full half left and the Bucs have been falling apart in the second half in recent weeks, but I’m not feeling much in the way of optimism. Let’s see what’s ahead.
