Week Five (New Orleans Saints Bye Week)
Atlanta Falcons at Denver Broncos
With issues still at quarterback for Denver, the Falcons are able to find a way to get one in the win column. The offense is able to remain almost mistake free and the defense capitalizes on Siemian’s mistakes to earn their first win of the NFL season.
Falcons 24 Broncos 20
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers (MNF)
The biggest test of the season for the Bucs pits them against a team they haven’t beaten since November 18, 2012. Yes, the Panthers have won six straight since Dallas Clark‘s game winning touchdown in overtime and lead the head-to-head series 20-11. For some reason, no matter how good or bad either team is, the Panthers seem to have Tampa’s number. One thing we know, though, is Jameis shines brightest when the stage is the biggest. This won’t be another beat down by the Panthers. No. It’ll come down to the leg of the second round pick out of Florida State in the closing seconds. Big upset in Charlotte on national television.
Buccaneers 23 Panthers 21
