After allowing a touchdown run by Atlanta Falcon Michael Turner, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers answered back with a touchdown run of their own, courtesy of LeGarrette Blount. Blount was shut down in these teams first meeting back in Week 9 but he’s off to a good start in this one.

Blount’s teammate, Aqib Talib, left the game with a right hip injury. Talib was an important part of shutting Roddy White down in their first meeting. If he’s unable to return (he’s questionable), it is a huge hit for the Bucs defense. White is in the midst of a career-year and has been in the conversation for NFL MVP. We’ll update his status if he returns to the game, but the Falcons would be wise to begin targeting White while Talib is in the locker room.
