|Why To Watch|
The NFC South has been one of the most competitive divisions in the league and this game could have a big impact on the playoff picture. Tampa Bay is coming off a dramatic win and it will look to build on that momentum. However, the Buccaneers would rather not have to rely so much on QB Chris Simms' arm. They need to get more from the running game. The good news for Tampa Bay fans is there is reason to believe RB Carnell Williams will have a big game.
A Buccaneers' defense that has been stout against the run for the most part appeared to take a game off last week. It needs to bounce back with a strong performance. No team has run the ball more than Atlanta, who is content keeping the ball on the ground until forced to throw downfield. If Tampa Bay's front seven doesn't clean up the mistakes, Atlanta's two-headed monster of QB Michael Vick and RB Warrick Dunn could have a monster game.
