The Falcons opened the third quarter with a 3-yard touchdown run by Tevin Coleman to extend their score to 27-6 However, The Bucs did respond with a touchdown of their own from Peyton Barber.

In the process of dominating Tampa Bay's secondary, Jones surpassed Hall of Fame wide receiver Lance Alworth for the most receiving yards and Anquan Boldin for most receptions for a player through his first 90 National Football League games, according to the Falcons' official website.

It was a solid overall performance by Atlanta's special team units and they certainly helped the Falcons pull out the win today. He hauled in a 51-yard scoring pass from fellow receiver Mohamed Sanu and went 25 yards for a TD on a throw from Matt Ryan, finishing off the play with a spectacular dive for the pylon. He had a career-high 300 yards vs. Carolina last season and 259 at Green Bay in 2014. He is the only player in National Football League history to have three games with at least 250 receiving yards.

Donald Trump and Time magazine dispute Person of the Year plans
Despite their criticism, he was finally named Person of the Year in 2016, a month after securing the presidency. The magazine named Mr Trump "Person of the Year" in 2016, following his shocking victory over Hillary Clinton.

Trufant suffered the injury after a collision with teammate Keanu Neal during the second quarter against Tampa Bay. He had two touchdown passes with the Cincinnati Bengals. But suddenly, a glance at the scoreboard saw the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a chance to drive in for the game-tying score.

Ryan was 26 of 35 for 317 yards, while Sanu remained flawless in his career when throwing the ball. I predict that the Bucs offensive line will struggle to keep the Falcons front four at bay and Atlanta's offense will continue to build on their momentum.

The secondary played well but lost Brian Poole, Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford for stretches, although Alford still led the team in tackles with seven.
