Buccaneers vs. Falcons: Franchise scoring mark within reach

USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons have a chance to set the team's scoring mark against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. How many points do they need?

The Atlanta Falcons have a chance to break the franchise record for points scored in a season, but they need to have a big day for that to happen. The Falcons have scored 402 points through 15 games. The franchise record, set in 1998, was 442.

The Falcons need 40 points to set the franchise record for points in a season as well as average points per game. The Falcons currently rank No. 5 in the NFL in scoring, which as a whole is up this season. The average NFL game has 45.48 points scored this season. If that averages holds up through this weekend, it'll be the highest points per game total since 1965.

The Falcons play the Buccaneers at the Georgia Dome on Sunday. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 1 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on Fox. Radio coverage of the game will be provided by STAR 94.1 FM and WQXI 790 AM on the Falcons Radio Network.
