After consecutive rounds of disappointment, the Atlanta Falcons gave their fans something about which to feel joy. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came by the Georgia Dome today for fun, autumn sun, and ultimately defeat. I didn’t watch the first three quarters of the game because my psyche has been teetering on the edge and I wasn’t sure if it could survive another Falcons’ fall from idol worship.
I was quite pleasantly surprised to check the score at the top of the second quarter to see the Falcons with 14 to the Buccaneers’ 0. By the bottom of the fourth quarter, though, Tampa Bay had put up 23 to Atlanta’s 31. And the Falcons kept their 31 to the Buccaneers’ 23. Final score.
