Falcons send blitz, Bucs score touchdown, simple no? A Mike Williams 58 yard touchdown has made today’s game all to close. Tampa Bay strike and strike quickly as they now have the lead set in their sites.
First place is on the line here and the Falcons defense has not stepped up. Remember the offseason talk about not letting up big plays? Well today they have. Remember the new and improved pass defense? Yea, me neither.
You have to give credit to the Bucs, they have played a very good game thus far, and have a great young quarterback who throws like the best of them. But this Falcons team has a lot of issues that many choose to neglect.
Josh Freeman has thrown 8 of 11 for 126 yards and Mike Williams has 3 receptions for 78 yards.
Heading into halftime let’s see if the Falcons can keep the lead as they drive down the field.
