Thee Falcons need a miracle to pull out a win against the Buccaneers and they may have to do it without their best defender. Others may think securing the 4th overall pick would be the miracle, but either way, the Falcons have an uphill battle if they want to pull one last win out of this miserable season.
Jarrett was surprisingly deemed questionable to return to the game most of the way through the second quarter by team. In the third quarter, he was declared out for the game.

This is surprising because there was no clear injury to Jarrett. He did not clearly leave the game due with an injury and the television feed included no mention of Jarrett heading to the medical tent or the locker room.
Jarrett was out the entire last drive in the half which finished with a Buccaneers field goal. The Falcons have not been able to stop or really even slow down Tom Brady and company. They’ve done so without Jarrett in the second half, but we’ll see if that can continue or not.
