Week 3 Could Prove Extra Special for Douglas

Tuesday got off to a great start for Falcons WR Harry Douglas, who tweeted earlier this morning about having the very same birthday as his wife.

It could be the beginning to a very productive week for Douglas, who has caught a touchdown in each of his last three games against Thursday night's NFC South opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Last season, Douglas recorded two 100-yard games against Tampa Bay, including six grabs for 134 yards (22.3 yards per reception), including a career-long 80-yard touchdown in the Week 11 meeting.

Just as birthdays are easy to remember, so are big games, like Douglas' in 2013, as recalled by the Buccaneers.

"Last year, Harry Douglas had a great breakout game against us and that just shows the depth the Atlanta Falcons have," Bucs LB Lavonte David said Tuesday, via conference call.

Falcons fans are hoping Douglas' birthday week is capped with a team win Thursday night, moving its record to 2-0 in the NFC South, which sounds even better than icing on a cake.
