The Atlanta Falcons defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 24 to 21, on ‘Monday Night Football’.
That means that a Falcons’ win on Sunday over the New Orleans Saints would eliminate the Detroit Lions from the NFC playoff race.
Carolina Panthers’ linebacker Thomas Davis was suspended two games by the NFL yesterday for his helmet-to-helmet hit on the Green Bay Packers’ Devonte Adams.
Through a team spokesman, Davis says he plans to appeal that suspension.
