Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Start Time, TV Channel, Live Stream and More


The Atlanta Falcons are on a short week following their unfortunate defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals, and they will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a national television appearance on Thursday evening. In our full preview from this morning, we took a deep dive into the particulars of the match-up against the rival Bucs, but in short, this is huge game for Mike Smith, Matt Ryan and company. Tampa Bay is reeling a bit with an 0-2 record, and in the friendly confines of the Georgia Dome, nothing short of a victory will suffice.

Our close, personal friends in Las Vegas have anointed the Falcons as a 6.5-point favorite in most places (with a couple of oddsmakers making the leap to a full seven points), generally following the sentiment that Atlanta is simply the better team with the added benefit of their dominance at the Georgia Dome. Do as you wish with this information, and there will be never be a sliver of degenerate judgment in this space, but as always, this is for “information purposes only”.

Stay tuned for post-game analysis, including a full recap shortly after the game, and feel free to sound off by using the comment section of this post as a game thread of sorts.
