LISTEN: Can Falcons Pull Off Upset vs. Buccaneers?

Locked On Falcons: Falcons vs. Bucs Week 2 Preview Crossover with Locked On Bucs

If the Atlanta Falcons want to avoid a second consecutive 0-2 start, they will have to beat the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

It's a tall task considering the Falcons did not score a touchdown last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Buccaneers are, well, the defending champs.

The Bucs came from behind to beat the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener last week, and are coming into the game with three extra days of rest.

Quarterback Tom Brady has also had massive success against the Falcons in his career, going a perfect 8-0, including a win in Super Bowl LI.

While anything can happen on any given Sunday, the Falcons beating the Bucs would be quite the surprise.
