Four turnovers have Falcons losing to Buccaneers in fourth quarter

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are leading the Atlanta Falcons 20-10 in the Georgia Dome, mostly because the Falcons just can't stop turning over the ball. They're at four turnovers now, and would have had five if one interception hadn't been called back because Jacquies Smith lined up offside. Kwon Alexander had two of those turnovers, and he's playing after having lost his little brother just days ago.

The Bucs' offense hasn't been as fluid as it's been in recent games, but Jameis Winston is still getting the Bucs down the field. Two touchdowns so far, one on a run on a broken play, gave the Bucs a three-score lead midway through the third quarter. They allowed Matt Ryan to get back into the game with a touchdown drive at the end of the third quarter, though, and they've struggled to stop the Falcons receiving corps all game long.

Can the Bucs hold on for their third win of the season, or will they find a way to lose as they did last week?
