You can point the finger at rookie safety Justin Evans for losing track of the ball on that deep touchdown pass to Julio Jones. The Falcons were able to maintain momentum, scoring the first touchdown of the day when wide receiver Mohamed Sanu hit Julio Jones for a 51-yard score.

Rekindling memories of the Super Bowl, the Falcons (7-4) almost squandered a big lead to a team playing its third game without injured quarterback Jameis Winston.

Highlights at 6 p.m. on Channel 2 Action News. The Bucs got the ball first and made quick work of getting the game's first score on a Patrick Murray 36-yard field goal.

Falcons cornerbacks Brian Poole (lower back) and Desmond Trufant (concussion) were knocked out of the game against Tampa Bay in the second quarter on Sunday. Coleman finished with 97 yards rushing on 19 carries. Fitzpatrick, who had zero touchdowns or interceptions, added two rushes for 20 yards.

Fitzpatrick completed 27-of-44 passes for 283 yards.

The Bucs did get a takeaway - in the fourth quarter, when linebacker Kendell Beckwith forced a fumble by Terron Ward with Brent Grimes recovering it and racing 37 yards to the Tampa Bay 42. Neither Ryan nor Ryan had an interception. Jones then snagged a second touchdown and the Falcons nailed another field goal to extend the Falcons lead to 17-3. Jones even helped with the running game on a jet sweep since the Falcons are without Devonta Freeman. Heck, you might try to blame the Mercedes-Benz Stadium turf for that. The Falcons and Bucs play in Tampa on December 18.

The Falcons remain in the playoff picture with the win. The Bucs are at Green Bay next Sunday in their third straight road game.
