TNF Highlights: Falcons 56 – Buccaneers 14


Devin HesterATLANTA – It was a record-breaking night as the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 56-14.

The 42-point margin of victory is also the largest in the history of the Falcons franchise. Atlanta led 56-0 after three quarters before allowing a pair of late Tampa Bay scores.

Matt Ryan was 21 of 24 on the night – setting a new team record for completion percentage in a single game – and had three touchdown passes.
