When the Falcons took over deep in their own territory with 13 minutes to play on Sunday against the Bucs, they had scored the game’s last 15 points and were in position to take the lead. The next six possessions played out like this: three-and-out (punt), Bucs TD, Bucs pick-six, turnover on downs, TB turnover on downs, Bucs pick-six. From 28-25 to 48-25 in nine minutes of game time. Credit the Falcons for being more competitive than they were in Week 1, especially on the road against the defending champs, but early returns don’t paint an optimistic picture in Atlanta.
