Falcons can deliver 10th straight loss for Bucs

Why to watch
Could the Buccaneers end the season with 10 straight defeats, many of them blowouts? The Falcons are looking to solidify their wild-card seeding, after getting drubbed in New Orleans.

Inside story
Who can forget the first meeting, when the Falcons jumped offside on defense, costing them a chance to get the ball late and make a comeback. These teams have gone in opposite directions since then. Tampa's defense has been brutal, but Matt Ryan has been preyed on by the Bucs' secondary in the past -- he has nine picks against them, nearly twice as many as against any other foe.
