After a disappointing open to the season on Sunday the Falcons get a chance to right the ship against the reigning Super Bowl champs. The Falcons will head to Tampa Bay to take on Tom Brady and company, who narrowly squeezed out their own week one victory 31-29 over the Cowboys.
Sunday will mark the Falcons first divisional test under new head coach Arthur Smith. Not a small task by any means, but a great opportunity for Smith to put his stamp on the division. Walking out of Tampa with a win would make for a heck of a stamp.
The Falcons currently own the all-time record against the Buccaneers 28-27, however the Buccaneers came away with the season sweep last season. Matt Ryan has had the Buccaneers number for most of his career, going 16-10 in 26 career games while throwing for 41 touchdowns to only 16 interceptions.
Sunday's bout against the Buccaneers should provide insight into how the Falcons will compete within the division. There are plenty of ways to take it in.
