The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons face off on Sunday in a Week 6 NFL showdown at Raymond James Stadium. In 2021 it was the Bucs that secured the 30-17 victory. 

The Falcons come into this game with a 2-2 record overall and they are coming off a three-point victory over the Cleveland Browns. Marcus Mariota completed only 7 of his 19 passes but it was 139 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Tyler Allgeier had a big game rushing 10 times for 84 yards. Cordarrelle Patterson was hurt during the game and he was placed on the IR. The Falcons are averaging 25.8 points while their defense is giving up 25.3 points per game. In this game the defense is going to need to have their best game of the season and really slow down Tom Brady. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who sit with a 2-2 record and they are coming off a 10-point loss at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs. The defense gave up 41 points and the defense is going to need to be a lot better here. Tom Brady completed 39 of his 52 passes for 385 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. The Buccaneers only had six total rushing attempts. Mike Evans caught eight passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns. The Buccaneers are averaging 20.5 points while their defense is giving up 17 points per game. 

The Falcons are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. The Buccaneers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games against the NFC. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings played between the two teams.The over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings between the two teams. 

The Falcons are being disrespected with this number. The Falcons have one of the top offenses in football and this Buccaneers' defense has some major holes with it. I expect Allgeier is going to have a big game on the ground, and the Falcons are going to keep this game close. Back the Falcons against the spread.
