Ironically the Falcons control their destiny to win the NFC South as they finish up with a road game at New Orleans and home to Carolina to close out the regular season.

Falcons survived a last second victory attempt by the Saints by intercepting a Drew Brees pass in the end zone.

Tampa Bay has struggled on defense as they sit 32nd and last in the NFL in pass defense as the team surrenders 276 yards through the air per game. Quarterback Jameis Winston has completed 62% of his throws for 14 touchdowns and 8 picks. Bucs are coming off a three point home loss to Detroit last week surrendering a game winning field goal to the Lions as time expired.
