At Tampa Bay

77 degrees, mostly cloudy
• Good game clock management by the Falcons on their final drive of the first half, resulting in a touchdown.
• Atlanta overcame a 17-point deficit in this game which is a credit to their in-game adjustments.
• Tampa Bay attempted 2-point conversions on consecutive touchdowns starting around 8:00 remaining in the fourth quarter. The first try brought the game to within three points and the second try aimed to extend the lead to three. Both were unsuccessful. Tampa Bay eventually lost on a last-second, game-winning field goal by the Falcons. Had Tampa Bay just stayed the course and kicked the extra points, they would have had a 3-point lead and gone to overtime. This was an excellent example of why 2-point conversions can have unforeseen consequences when attempted too early in the game. These decisions resulted in a lowering of the score to Tampa Bay’s play calling category, which otherwise was quite good on the day.
