The Falcons entered Week 17 planning on playing to win.
We’d hate to see what the score would currently be if they weren’t.
After losing five games in a row, the Bucs have emerged from their slumber, pushing their lead to 12 points via a 40-yard touchdown run from rookie running back Doug Martin. It’s the biggest lead of the day for Tampa, who lost to the NFC’s No. 1 seed by only one point to start Tampa’s current slide.
The Falcons have looked sluggish all day, something they’ll need to overcome before launching their playoff run in two weeks.
