Bucs-Falcons Score Update: 24-14 Michael Palmer Catches First Career Touchdown

New, 1 comment

With Jonathan Babineaux intercepting a Josh Freeman pass the Atlanta Falcons looked to capitalize, they did just that as Michael Palmer caught his very first touchdown in the NFL.

With Tony Gonzalez and Roddy White clearing out, Palmer ran underneath and squeezed it in for the touchdown. It was designed to make the Bucs defenders bite up on the talented receivers and forget about the little known Palmer.

The Falcons have had little problems scoring in the red-zone scoring a touchdown 3 out of the 4 times they were down there. It seemed though that the drive may stall with Roddy White appearing short to the naked eye, the referees ruled it to be a first down and the Bucs challenged and failed. From there the Falcons punched it in.
