The Falcons lead the Buccaneers in the career matchup series 28-26. The Buccaneers need to win or have the Los Angeles Rams lose to secure the fifth seed heading into next weekend’s Wild Card weekend. The Atlanta Falcons interviewed Raheem Morris for the full-time head coaching job this week so he could potentially be sticking around for years to come as a former Buccaneer coach and now rival. Lets Go Bucs!
