NFL: Pro Football Hall of Fame Game-Atlanta Falcons vs Denver Broncos Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Locked on Bucs podcast was joined by Locked on Falcons during the Locked On Podcast Network’s “Crossover Wednesday,” previewing the week twelve matchup between the Buccaneers and Falcons.

I spoke with Aaron Freeman about the struggles the Falcons have faced thus far, but have seemed to start turning around the last few weeks - thanks in large part to former Bucs head coach Raheem Morris.

The Bucs will face another former coach in Dirk Koetter, who is back to being Atlanta’s offensive coordinator. Since the return of Koetter, the Falcons’ offense - most notably quarterback Matt Ryan - has struggled to be as explosive as we’ve seen in the recent past.

We dive into the cornerback issues for the Buccaneers and what to expect when lining up across from Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley this week. The big story, obviously, is Jamel Dean not getting any defensive snaps against New Orleans after his standout game in week ten against the Cardinals.
