The Bucs-Falcons Game Just Had The Craziest Ending Of The Season

Tampa Bay had one more trick up its sleeve before time ran out in its NFC South rivalry game against the Falcons.

The Bucs, once down 21-6, had rallied back with an improbable chance to beat the Falcons.

Down 34-29 with just seven seconds to play, the Buccaneers spread the defense out at the line of scrimmage, giving quarterback Jameis Winston some space. Atlanta desperately needed to avoid a 1-5 start to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, and everything almost came crashing down in the most Atlanta of ways on Sunday. He bobbled it to wideout Mike Evans, who then tried to lob it to wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Tampa Bay's last-second effort came after the Falcons elected to kick a 57-yard field goal to go up five, a decision that likely would have been questioned had Atlanta not held on to win.
