The road to the Super Bowl in the NFC was going to go through Atlanta regardless of the result of their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That doesn’t mean the Falcons called off the dogs. Matt Ryan played the entire game, but the Buccaneers defeated the Falcons 22-17.
Doug Martin finished off an incredible rookie season with 142 yards rushing and a touchdown. Mike Williams also had a touchdown for the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers finish up and down season with a 7-9 record. The Falcons finish one of the best seasons in team history with a 13-3 record.
Next week, the Falcons will watch the NFC wild card games and prepare for the lowest remaining seed to come to the Georgia Dome in two weeks. The Falcons are 7-1 at home and will be a tough out in the playoffs.
