LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 06 Atlanta Falcons 17

Trying to snap a two-game losing skid, the Buccaneers went home for an NFC South rematch with the Atlanta Falcons.

In the first half, the Buccaneers jumped out to an early lead as kicker Matt Bryant got a 42-yard field goal in the first quarter, while nailing a 24-yard field goal in the second quarter. However, for the rest of the game, it was all Atlanta.

In the third quarter, the Falcons took the lead with OLB Demorrio Williams returning a fumble 54 yards for a touchdown, while FB Justin Griffith got a 21-yard TD run. In the fourth quarter, Atlanta wrapped up their season sweep over Tampa Bay Buccaneers with kicker Morten Andersen nailing a 23-yard field goal. With the loss, the BUCS fell to 3–10.
