The Falcons just notched their fifth win, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road. Now they’re back home, hosting a more challenging team.
The Buccaneers are in town today, and they’ll try to widen their already formidable lead over the rest of the NFC South by beating Atlanta. The Falcons, meanwhile, will try to earn their first home win, knock off Tom Brady, and otherwise make us happy.

Key Questions: Will the Falcons pull their passing game up enough to challenge the Buccaneers secondary and keep them in this game? Can Atlanta’s secondary take advantage of some recent Tom Brady shakiness and snag a couple of turnovers? Can the Falcons stun this team and win their first game at home o the 2021 season?
