Falcons vs. Buccaneers: Roddy White discusses team's 24-23 win

Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Roddy White discussed the team's 24-23 victory on Sunday over the streaking Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After the Atlanta Falcons found a way to win at home against the Arizona Cardinals last week in despite of themselves, the team was able to, as wide receiver Roddy White called it, grind out another victory, this time beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-23 on the road.

The star wide receiver told reporters, including D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, that the Falcons just tried to come out with a tough mentality and also cited the team's physical play as a reason for the road win against an opponent within the division.

"It was a good win because it was a road win. (Tampa Bay) has been playing tough all year long and came in with that mentality and we tried to match those guys today. We went out there and played physical with them and just found a way to win. Julio (Jones) did an excellent job today of giving us a big play and we just grinded it out until the end and it was a good win in the division."

Now 10-1 on the season, the Falcons will head back home to Atlanta and prepare to host the visiting New Orleans Saints, who lost on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. The Falcons will be looking forward to the rematch, after the team lost their perfect record to the Saints.

Atlanta currently possesses the No. 1 seed in the NFC and have a very comfortable four-game lead in the division.
