Thursday Night Football: How to watch Falcons vs. Buccaneers

New, comments

Another Thursday night of football

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC South may be hosting a playoff deciding game tonight at the Atlanta Falcons (5-3) take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5). Despite most predictions, the Carolina Panthers are not running away with the division and instead the Falcons see themselves in the lead. However, the lead is slim and any team has a chance in this division. Tonight can end up being a critical game for either team so expect a close one.

The Atlanta Falcons are on the road but oddmakers like the team as they are still 3.5-point favorites. They just defeated the Green Bay Packers last week with their electric offense. The same cannot be said on their defense so that leaves Jameis Winston to try and keep up with Matt Ryan. For fantasy purposes, Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman and Mike Evans are just few of who to check up on tonight.

Use this as your open thread to discuss the game.
