In routing the NFC South-leading New Orleans Saints and then the Carolina Panthers on the road the past two weeks, the Atlanta Falcons earned every bit of praise they garnered for 26-9 and 29-3 wins in which their defense didn't allowed a touchdown.

Atlanta will try to continue this sudden streak of excellence Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to town, attempting to salvage the remains of a once-promising season that has fallen off the rails.
