The Falcons' win eliminated the Packers from playoff contention.

TAMPA, Fla. - A three-game losing streak back in October was portrayed to be the end of the world for the Atlanta Falcons and the ultimate sign of a Super Bowl hangover.

Freeman, who did not play when the teams met three weeks ago, led the Falcons by rushing for 126 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown run with 7:58 remaining in the fourth quarter that virtually put the game away.

Tampa Bay, meanwhile, has nothing to play for but pride, so they will be looking to play the role of spoiler in primetime. Heading into Monday night, the Buccaneers will have to play without star defensive players Lavonte David, Gerald McCoy, and Vernon Hargreaves III.

The last time these two teams met was back on November 26 in Atlanta.

Despite having a career year in 2016 to the tune of 96 catches for 1321 yards and 12 touchdowns, Mike Evans has been a huge let down this season.

It wasn't easy, but the Falcons (9-5) eventually wore down the short-handed Bucs on their home turf. If the Bucs don't turn it over five times, like they did last week, they'll hang around for a bit.

Earlier in the week, Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter suggested that he would use 10 players to cover Julio Jones in tonight's matchup.

What ultimately swung this game was Tampa Bay's depleted defense. In fact, Jones is averaging close to 10 catches per game for 137 yards and a touchdown over his last five contests against Tampa Bay.

Matt Ryan threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hardy; Levine Toilolo recovered a fumble in the end zone; and Matt Bryant kicked a 57-yard field goal.

McCoy hurt his right biceps and David suffered a hamstring injury during the Bucs' loss to the Detroit Lions. Freeman and running back Terron Ward are able to decimate the Buccaneers' front-seven en route to victory.

On the ensuing drive, Tampa Bay pulled into a 7-7 tie with Winston's 30-yard scoring pass to rookie tight end O.J. Howard, who sustained a game-ending ankle injury on the play. I'm talking about Falcons running back Devonta Freeman and Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston.
