Week 12 Expert Picks: Buccaneers vs. Falcons

Posted Nov 24, 2017

Media members from across the league offer their predictions for Week 12.

It’s another divisional matchup for the Buccaneers as they head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons in Week 12. Tampa Bay has rarely been the favorite this year and this week is no exception, with the Falcons picked unanimously to win.

Both teams have won their last two games and both teams won on last second field goals in Week 11. Tampa Bay hit a 35-yard field goal with four seconds on the clock after Miami tied the game up with three minutes to play. Atlanta hung on to win in Seattle on Monday Night Football after Seahawks’ kicker Blair Walsh missed a last-second 52-yard field goal to tie the game.

Atlanta has the better record and the confidence of most of our experts, despite being on shorter rest after playing on Monday night. But in a divisional game with familiar foes, anything goes.
