  • Fantasy Football Week 15 Start or sit for Falcons vs. Bucs

- The way the Tampa Bay Buccaneers see it, they still have a lot to play for in a year in which they will miss the playoffs for the 10th straight season.

The defending NFC champion Falcons (9-5) would win the division title if they defeat the New Orleans Saints (10-4) on Sunday and the Carolina Panthers (10-4) on December 31. But for us, it's the season of spoiling. "Always focus on what we've got next", Falcons safety Keanu Neal said.

"You don't want to leave with a bad taste in your mouth in the offseason". All-Pro defensive tackle and team sack leader Gerald McCoy (biceps) is out as well, as is linebacker Lavonte David (hamstring). From an offense that failed to live up to its risky promise at many key times, a defense that proved incapable of stopping any opposing attack either on the ground or through the air, and even a kicking game that has gone from laughing stock to a true detriment, the 2017 Buccaneers have been a tough act to watch. The Falcons won the meeting 34-20 in Atlanta, with Julio Jones catching a season-best 12 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

The Atlanta Falcons will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Monday Night Football, start time at 8:30 PM Et, at Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL. The Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11 p.m. will air immediately following the game. In that scenario, the Falcons would have a season split with the Panthers but a better division record, with the Panthers having lost two NFC South games to the Saints. "We talked about that before the game", Falcons coach Dan Quinn said.




The 4-9 Buccaneers have already been eliminated from postseason consideration. Com very candidly and then it's going to be very interesting obviously come Sunday in the superdome. The saints security yesterday I think I was a little I guess would say disappointed by the team in the amount of turnovers are three turnovers in that game.

Like McCoy, Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter expects the Bucs to embrace the challenge to finish strong.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game, or follow along as we bring you the latest score, live updates and more.

"Do you like it?" On the season, the Bucs have been in the middle of the pack in the National Football League with 20 turnovers (nine fumbles and 11 interceptions) and even after Sunday's disastrous game carry a +4 turnover differential. Tampa Bay preserved that three-point deficit when Will Gholston blocked Matt Bryant's 33-yard field-goal attempt. No one else has more than one. And I interestingly also and let's say ten let's say that falcons win tonight. He needs four catches to reach 574 for his career and move ahead of Terance Mathis for second place on the franchise list. Since the Falcons own the head-to-head tiebreaker against the Seahawks, that one-game lead is essentially a two-game lead. Tonight, Jameis Winston (above, right) will take the snaps.
