Falcons beat Bucs to earn consecutive winning seasons

  • Follow Latest News

TAMPA, Fla. – Matt Ryan threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, helping the Falcons beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-10 to finish with consecutive winning records for the first time in franchise history.

Standing in for injured leading rusher Michael Turner, Jason Snelling ran for 147 yards on 25 carries. Much of the damage came while Atlanta (9-7) was putting the game away after intercepting Bucs rookie Josh Freeman twice in the fourth quarter.

Tampa Bay (3-13) concluded its first season under coach Raheem Morris with its worst record since 1991. The Bucs upset Seattle and New Orleans on the road the previous two weeks. However, it’s uncertain whether that will be enough to save the 33-year-old’s job.
