ATLANTA: The Falcons narrowly escaped losing to the lowly Cardinals last Sunday with a 23-19 victory. Matt Ryan completed 28-of-46 passes for 301 yards but he also threw five interceptions, which included three in the first quarter alone. Roddy White caught a team-high 8 passes for 123 yards while Julio Jones added three catches for 33 yards but left the game early due to an ankle injury. The win improved Atlanta’s record to 9-1 but the Falcons failed to cover as a 9.5-point favorite so they’re now 6-4 against the spread this season. With a playoff spot all but locked up, the Falcons need to keep winning in order to secure the top seed in the NFC.

TAMPA BAY: The Bucs just keep on winning. Their 27-21 come-from-behind victory last Sunday in Carolina marked their fourth-straight win and their fifth victory in their last six games. Josh Freeman completed 25-of-46 passes for 248 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions, while rookie Doug Martin rushed 24 times for 138 yards and Vincent Jackson added six catches for 94 yards and a score. While trailing by 11 midway through the fourth quarter, the Freeman hit Jackson on a beautiful 24-yard pass completion to get within two points. Jackson then caught the 2-point conversion from Freeman and Dallas Clark caught a 15-yard touchdown pass in overtime to win it. Tampa Bay is now 6-4 on the year and after covering the 1-point spread, the Bucs are now 8-2 against the number and have covered in four straight games.
