Falcons RB Steven Jackson vs. Bucs MLB Mason Foster: The Falcons gave Jackson a season-high 18 carries against the Lions as they tried to get their running game moving. He rushed for 60 yards. Foster had seven tackles, one for a loss and one quarterback hit last week against Cleveland.
Falcons S Dwight Lowery vs. Bucs RB Bobby Rainey: The Falcons have dropped Lowery down in the box and have used him as a linebacker in running situations. He's helped to solidify what was a meek rushing defense earlier in the season. Rainey had a strong game last week against Cleveland, rushing for 87 yards on 19 carries. Last season, he rushed for 163 yards on 30 carries in a 41-28 victory over the Falcons on Nov. 17, 2013. "Bobby did a good job for us last week," Bucs coach Lovie Smith said.
