The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Atlanta Falcons 31 to 27 in Atlanta Sunday afternoon in a game that the Falcons led 17-0 at halftime.
Since the beginning of the 2016 season, the Falcons have now blown a total of six double-digit leads at either halftime or the end of the third quarter, including a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI in 2017, a game they lost 34-28 to a New England Patriots team led by current Bucs quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady, who went 31 for 45 for 390 yards and two touchdown passes in today’s win was quoted as saying, “LOL”.
With the win, the Buccaneers improve to 9-5 on the season, their most wins in a season since 2016. Their next game is scheduled for next Saturday against the Lions in Detroit, a team that has historically been even more comically bad than Atlanta.
