Six times in their long careers, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan have led their teams against each other and all six times Brady has walked off the field as the victor. That includes five regular season match-ups and that one fateful Super Bowl where Tom and his colleagues found themselves down 28-3 before storming back to win. All those games are in the past, so Ryan is looking to the future. 

The Falcons have their work cut out for them if they want to buck this Brady trend. Ryan and his offense struggled in week one’s 32-6 loss to the Eagles as they were held out of the end zone. 

The Falcons put two good drives together in the first half but both stalled in the red zone forcing them to settle for field goals. The second half only got worse as Atlanta was shut out in the final two quarters. By the game’s end, Ryan compiled a passer rating of just 71.6, the third lowest of opening week. 

The inactives are as follows: 

Falcons: Darby (WR), Franks (QB), Gallman (RB), Hall (CB), Cominsky (DL)

Buccaneers: Trask (QB), Dardon (WR), Vaughn (RB), Leverett (G), Davis (DL)

Brady and the Bucs will look to keep the dominating going in this matchup. The Bucs are coming off a 31-29 win over the Cowboys that opened the 2021 season last week. Brady threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns, two of which went to long-time teammate Rob Gronkowski, while Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin pulled in the others. Godwin finished with 105 yards on nine catches, Brown caught 5 passes for 121 yards.  

The Buccaneers are HUGE 12.5-point favorites against the Falcons. The over/under is 52.

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.

Sling TV

If you can stand to miss CBS games, Sling TV provides a middle ground. The $50 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has FOX affiliates for this game, as well as local NBC affiliates plus ESPN.

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is included in NFL Sunday Ticket, which is available even if you don't have DirecTV.
