Here we are again, as the Falcons look to avoid a disastrous 8th loss in a match-up with the Tampa Bay Bucs. On Saturday morning, we broke down this game in full, but in short, this is a battle of two of the worst teams in the NFC (if not the NFL) this season.
Atlanta does have the positive sign of seeing Atlanta Falcons release LB Thomas Howard; activate LB Sean Weatherspoon” href=”http://atlallday.com/2013/11/12/atlanta-falcons-release-lb-thomas-howard-activate-lb-sean-weatherspoon/”>Sean Weatherspoon run out of the tunnel for the first time in weeks, but other than that, it’s tough to get excited about any single aspect of this game. It’s a difficult match-up for an already struggling offense, and Vincent Jackson provides just enough terror to scare you on the other side of the ball.
Las Vegas, which features people smarter than I am, has made this game a virtual “pick ‘em” depending on where you look, and that is a bit of hilarity injected to an awful situation. It would be tough for me to pick against Matt Ryan when he’s facing a 1-8 team, so I won’t do that, but nothing would surprise me here.
