Big boy drive, defensive stop give Bucs 23-17 lead

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a tough team to beat this year, and they're proving it week in week out. The Buccaneers now lead 20-17 after a big drive.

The nine-play drive saw big passing plays out of Tiquan Underwood and Doug Martin, who punched it in from one yard out to cap it off. The highlight-reel play was a 39-yard pass to Tiquan Underwood over the middle of the field into a tight window.

Doug Martin also knocked Dunta Robinson out of the game, who headed to the locker room with what appeared to be a concussion after knocking heads with Martin. Asante Samuel came off clutching his arm, too.

The Falcons attempted to strike back, but for what I think is the first time this season, the corner blitz got to an opponent. Matt Ryan never saw E.J. Biggers blitzing out of the slot, knocking out the ball. The Bucs recovered the fumble, but a third-down drop by Tiquan Underwood forced them to settle for a field goal. It's now 23-17 for Tampa Bay.
