Rook33’s Pick:

Buccaneers play the Falcons tough with last 4 of 5 games in Atlanta decided by 6 points or less. Falcons not having Jones and White will make it tough on Matt Ryan to perform at a top level. Mike Glennon played well vs. Eagles and Atlanta pass D is ranked 26th. Going to go with the trend and expect a close game here. Both these teams when looking at the 2013 schedules have had many close games – SOLID PICK OF THE GAME BUCCANEERS -7
