The Buccaneers returned to early-season form with a 31-10 drubbing of the Falcons, as they used a threepronged attack by its offense, defense and special teams to secure the victory and improve its record in domes to 4-0.  Trent Dilfer had a pair of touchdown passes and the WD-40 combination of Mike Alstott and Warrick Dunn saw another defense ran and passed over on the way to a Tampa Bay success.
