The Atlanta Falcons are missing their top two defensive tackles, and Tampa Bay running back LeGarrette Blount just had a nice bounce-back performance against the Minnesota Vikings.
Blount carried the ball 13 times for 71 yards and two second-half touchdowns, helping the Bucs come back from a 17-0 halftime deficit to secure a 24-20 victory.
Josh Freeman rebounded from a terrible start to throw for 243 yards and a touchdown and furthered his reputation as a quarterback who performs well in clutch situations.
Freeman led the Buccaneers to five come-from-behind victories last season and has already added one this year.
Next week's opponent Atlanta is coming off an emotional win against their former franchise player, Michael Vick.
The Buccaneers will be able to control the clock in this one and force the Falcons to play from behind, which means less Michael Turner pounding the ball into the heart of their defense.
This time, they won't have to make a comeback.
