Falcons 24, Bucs 23November 25th, 2012
The Falcons’ huge first-down slant pass late to all but ice the game came with Bucs cornerback Danny Gorrer (that’s right, who?) covering Roddy White.
All the predictable elements were in place. The Bucs’ straight pass rush was weak, and the secondary was roasted and toasted like campfire marshmallows, but scored big a couple of big plays. The Bucs’ run defense was stout, and the Tampa Bay offense reeled off explosive plays, with Vincent Jackson carving up the Falcons defense.
Matty Ice was just too much. And Doug Martin never got going. That’s the surprise of the game for Joe, the Falcons run defense, their Achilles heal, coming to play.
The Falcons aren’t much better than the Bucs, but they’re still better.
Stick with Joe for much more out of this game through the day.
