01:31 AM ET 11.27 | When I watch the Falcons, I'm not just looking for positive plays from the offense and defense, I'm also looking for how well they are are able to succeed in different phases of the game. The Falcons had been very poor against the run, but turned things around against Tampa Bay by really stopping Doug Martin from doing a whole bunch. They were successful in the run on that side of the ball, but they showed next to nothing in a specific part of the run game yet again. Early in the game, we saw some really good runs from the Falcons, so it's not like they couldn't run the ball whatsoever. But the majority of those runs came outside of the tackles, with receivers put in motion to trap defensive players, and clever use of angles by the Falcons to outflank the Buccaneer defense for solid gains. I don't want to say that those were smoke and mirror plays, because they certainly weren't but they were far from smashmouth, running-between-the-tackles offensive plays. And that's a big problem.
