ATLANTA: Atlanta finally transitioned to a pass-first offense in offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's first year, though with new No. 1 back Steven Jackson replacing over-the-hill Michael Turner, they at least have the threat of a running game now. Koetter brought in more zone looks, and they should continue to move away from the man blocking of past regimes. Jackson can play three downs, but they may be careful with his workload to keep him fresh for the playoffs. They trust No. 2 back Jacquizz Rodgers in the passing game and on some runs out of spread looks, and they'll rotate Jason Snelling in as well. The biggest addition Koetter made to the passing game was more bubble screens, which proved to be one of their best weapons. They use a lot of motion to create mismatches and effectively use bunch formations for added confusion. Roddy White remains Matt Ryan's favorite target, while Julio Jones is frequently used either downfield, or on those bubble screens. Ryan's second look is usually for TE Tony Gonzalez up the seam. Atlanta gets more balanced in the red zone, and that should hold true with Jackson replacing Turner as the red zone and goal line back. The Falcons are hoping disgruntled DE Osi Umenyiora seriously helps a pass rush that totaled nine sacks in the second half of the year. Atlanta ranked 24th in yards allowed last season (366 YPG), but forced 31 turnovers (T-4th in NFL), including a dozen in the final five games. Atlanta departed with veteran DE John Abraham and CBs Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson, but the secondary is still loaded with FS Thomas DeCoud (6 INT), CB Asante Samuel (5 INT) and rookie CB Desmond Trufant. The front seven has questions, but both top tacklers, LBs Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas, are now healthy.
TAMPA BAY: Because the team was involved in so many back-and-forth, comeback affairs, Tampa was more pass-happy than head coach Greg Schiano would have liked. That should change this year, as they'll rely heavily on Doug Martin as the centerpiece of the offense. They'll continue to use a lot of zone blocking in front of Martin, and Erik Lorig will be on the field often as a lead blocker. They added ex-Bengal hybrid back Brian Leonard, one of Schiano's best players at Rutgers. He figures to take some passing down reps from Martin, but he won't get many carries. Rookie Mike James won't be used much either. The Bucs brass is reportedly a little sour on Josh Freeman, and they may opt to take the ball out of his hands more. Most of what they'll do will be based off play-action and aimed at getting the big play. Vincent Jackson will continue to see a ton of passes thrown his way on the outside, with Mike Williams settled in as a complementary player. Martin will see more work in the passing game, both as a safety valve and on screens. The Bucs don't have a big role for the tight ends in this offense, but they don't have much talent at that position anyway. Tampa Bay would also like to get more run-heavy in the red zone, where Martin now takes pretty much all reps. The Bucs boasted the NFL's No. 1 run defense (82.5 rush YPG allowed), but only because teams torched them through the air for a league-worst 297 passing YPG. Shutdown CB Darrelle Revis and hard-hitting FS Dashon Goldson will help fix the broken secondary, but the pass rush (26 sacks, T-3rd-worst in NFL) is still pretty weak, even if DE Adrian Clayborn returns 100 percent from last year's torn ACL. But there's nothing weak about non-stop WLB Lavonte David who recorded 20 TFL (3rd in NFL) as a rookie last year.

*Falcons-Buccaneers Preview* ============================


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally put an end to their skid, but it came far too late to salvage their season.

Things also appear lost for the Atlanta Falcons, whose last win came against Tampa Bay four weeks ago.

The Buccaneers hope to build on their first victory and avoid a ninth loss in 11 meetings to the visiting Falcons on Sunday.

Tampa Bay (1-8) became the league's final team to win with Monday's 22-19 victory over Miami. After blowing a 15-0 lead, the Buccaneers got the go-ahead score with Bobby Rainey's 1-yard TD run to cap an 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter. The defense then sealed the win with Darrelle Revis' interception with 1:35 to play.

Coach Greg Schiano is optimistic his players will be able to play more relaxed moving forward.

"Getting it out of the way, I don't care who you are, as the losses mount getting that (first) one win becomes harder and harder (to get)," Schiano said. "I hope now that our guys can just go out and play. Although they've said there's no additional pressure, I think human nature puts that pressure on yourself."

Atlanta (2-7) hasn't won since a 31-23 victory over Tampa Bay in Week 7, dropping three games by a combined 61 points including a 33-10 defeat to Seattle last Sunday.

For a team that posted a 56-24 regular-season record over the last five years under coach Mike Smith - second only to New England - being all but eliminated from the playoff hunt is an unfamiliar spot for the Falcons. Smith received some criticism for leaving quarterback Matt Ryan and other stars in late against the Seahawks despite the lopsided deficit.

However, he isn't so ready to surrender despite the fact that Atlanta only clings to a minute chance of reaching the playoffs.

"This season is not over," said Smith, whose previous worst record was 9-7 in 2009. "I know people want to say doom and gloom. That's not the case. We've not played the type of football that we'd like to play in the first nine games. It is well below our expectations and we're going to continue to work and get ready to play the Buccaneers."

The Falcons have been ineffective on the ground in the last three weeks despite the return of Steven Jackson, averaging 56.3 rushing yards per game as a team with no scores. A knee injury to left tackle Sam Baker hasn't helped their cause.

Atlanta, which averages an NFL-worst 64.3 rushing yards, was held to 18 yards on 18 carries last month against Tampa Bay.

"The thing about it is you have to keep chipping away. No one is going to come in the locker room and save us. We have to save ourselves. ... We can't dwell on it," said Jackson, who was held to 11 yards on nine carries against Seattle. "One thing about being a professional, you have to acknowledge the things you made a mistake on and move on to the next one."

The lack of an effective running attack and big deficits have also left more pressure on Ryan and the passing game. Ryan has posted a 61.6 passer rating over his last three games with three TDs and seven interceptions.

Perhaps facing Tampa Bay can help him get back on track given he was 20 of 26 for 273 yards and three TDs in the first meeting.

Unlike Atlanta, the Buccaneers' running game appears to be heading in the right direction. Although Mike James broke his ankle Monday to join Doug Martin as the team's second back to suffer a season-ending injury, Brian Leonard and Rainey proved to be a potent duo, combining for 102 yards on 28 carries. Tampa Bay was coming off a season-high 205 rushing yards against Seattle.

The Falcons should be bolstered by the expected return of linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who hasn't played since Week 2.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez's status is still uncertain after he momentarily left Sunday's contest due to a toe injury.

Atlanta will be without running back Jason Snelling after he was arrested early Friday morning on misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Smith made the announcement Saturday, saying he was "disappointed in what has transpired over the last 48 hours."
