Falcons Drub Buccaneers, 43-28
NFL passing leader Matt Ryan threw for 344 yards and four touchdowns, and the Atlanta Falcons dominated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 43-28, in Florida on Thursday night.
Julio Jones caught eight passes for 111 yards and a score as Atlanta (6-3) piled up the points, scoring at least 10 in every quarter.
Jameis Winston passed for 261 yards and three touchdowns for Tampa Bay (3-5). Both he and star receiver Mike Evans, who caught 11 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns, were hurt during the game.
Winston suffered what looked to be an ankle injury in the fourth quarter. Evans left with a possible concussion.
