Buccaneers leading at halftime

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one of the best teams of the NFC, visit the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to face the Atlanta Falcons.

The Buccaneers are 8-3 and have a 3-3 record as visitors. Last Week, Tampa triumphed against the Colts at the Lucas Oil Stadium.

With the victory against Indianapolis, the Buccaneers ended a two-game streak of losses as visitors.

How to stop Leonard Fournette? Atlanta has been unable to disable Brady's blitzes, looking for one of their best offensive linemen. Tampa is steadily moving forward. Brady throws to Rob Gronkowski, who runs for 27 yards and scores for Tampa. It is the 103rd touchdown for the two combined.

Atlanta's defense fires on Tom Brady, but the Buccaneers quarterback finds Mike Evans to advance. Brady is making a complicated game look easy. Leonard Fournette is another deep man for Tampa this afternoon.

2nd 10:41 Mike Davis to the rescue

The Buccaneers break Matt Ryan's protection block and catch it for the second time in the game. The play has been key in stopping the Falcons' drive, which was shaping up to score. However, Mike Davis is once again the spearhead and Atlanta goes for more points.

1st 0:23 Atlanta pulls down the curtain

Third offensive series by Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. The aggressiveness is the same, but the Falcons are starting to improve defensively. That has caused Tampa to turn the ball over for the first time on the night. A dose of confidence for Matt Ryan.

Tom Brady throws a short pass to the right to Cameron Brate for 3 yards to regain the lead for the Buccaneers. Although it looked like a matter of course, Ryan Succop missed the extra point and couldn't propel Tampa. It was a game of thrills and complete offensive series. It's the Falcons' turn.
