The Bucs have had an extra few days to prepare for their first divisional clash of the season against the Falcons on Monday.
The defending champs survived a bit of a scare in the season-opener against the Cowboys, but that hasn’t stopped the bookies from laying Tampa Bay as double-digit favourites after Tom Brady began the season where he left off last year.
As for the Falcons, what can you say?
Not for the first time, Atlanta fell well short of expectations against the Eagles last week as the offence mustered only 261 total yards in the blowout loss.
Perhaps the most concerning part for Atlanta though was the defence.
Jalen Hurts led the Eagles to 434 yards and three touchdowns, which spells big trouble matching up against a Bucs offence that finished top five in points scored last year.
To be fair, the Bucs didn’t look great defensively either last week, but that was against a Cowboys offence that was also among the league’s highest-scoring prior to Dak Prescott’s injury last year.
