ATLANTA, Ga. (WFLA) – The end of the NFL regular season is here and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are planning on ending it on a high note with another division matchup.
Last Sunday, the Buccaneers (8-8) took down the Carolina Panthers to clinch the NFC South. Now, the playoff-bound Bucs will look to defeat the Atlanta Falcons (6-10) for the second time this season.
The two teams met back in Week 5 when the Buccaneers soared passed the Falcons and walked away with a 21-15 win. Although Sunday’s game isn’t crucial to the Bucs’ season, they’re still going to treat it like a regular division game
