The Buccaneers have scored on their opening drive in each quarter of this ballgame. Once again, this one has come on the foot of Connor Barth. Barth connected from 42 yards out to make it a 16-3 game.
The drive began at the 20 yard line after a touchback and the offense got things rolling quickly. Josh Freeman his Mike Williams on his first pass for a 23-yard gain. Williams is now just four yards away from having a 1,000-yard season.
Freeman converted a third-down pass to Doug Martin over the middle to bring them into Falcon territory and WR Vincent Jackson caught his first pass of the day for 15 yards.
The drive stalled at the Falcon 24-yard line before Barth knocked his third field goal of the day. The Falcons will take over, down 13, with 10:52 remaining in the third.
