Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't find out how they match up with their division rivals from one state up until the last three weeks of the 2020 season.

Last year, the Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons split their two contests, with Tampa Bay winning in Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Falcons returning the favor with an overtime victory at Raymond James Stadium to close out the season. The 2020 series will take place in the same order, but not until the season is almost done.
