Atlanta, already with a commanding lead in the NFC South, can all but wrap up the division with a Week 12 win over Tampa Bay. Thanksgiving action highlights the rest of the Week 12 schedule.
The Atlanta Falcons already hold a commanding division lead on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They can virtually lock the division up this week, as they head south to face the Bucs on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
Atlanta comes into the game having beaten Arizona last week, pulling out a 23-19 victory despite five Matt Ryan interceptions. The Buccaneers are on a four-game winning streak, defeating Carolina behind 138 rushing yards by Doug Martin.
