Bucs' offensive struggles, slow starts magnified in loss to Falcons

After two-straight wins, the team is looking for their third in a row, which could help solidify them as favorites for a Wild Card spot in the NFC. The Buccaneers (4-7) rebounded from a 27-6 deficit behind backup Ryan Fitzpatrick and drove deep into Atlanta territory after forcing a fumble at the other end of the field.

Jones caught touchdowns from Matt Ryan and fellow wide receiver Mohamed Sanu as the Falcons built a big lead and held on late. With Freeman out most of the game against Dallas in Week 10, Coleman ran for 83 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Tampa Bay's offense then maintained their hot streak on a 9-play, 80-yard drive that ended in another score, leaving the Bucs trailing just 27-20 entering the fourth quarter. He is the only player in National Football League history to have three games with at least 250 receiving yards. He had two touchdown passes with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Trufant suffered the injury after a collision with teammate Keanu Neal during the second quarter against Tampa Bay. Sanu is now 6-for-6 for his career throwing passes while lining up in the Wildcat - or 12 gauge, as the team calls this formation. Patrick Murray's first field goal was from 36 yards on the opening drive.

Julio Jones reminds us all he's not human

The Atlanta Falcons lost top cornerback Desmond Trufant for the remainder of Sunday's game with a concussion.

If Matt Ryan can get Tampa Bay's secondary to bite on the play-action passing game early in the first-half, Julio Jones is going to have a gigantic day through the air.

The Atlanta Falcons seemingly had everything working in their favor on a day where their best player dominated.
