On the second Throwback game and a day in which late former coach John McKay was honoured, the Bucs found themselves second best again to Atlanta, the back-breaking play being a kick return touchdown in the fourth quarter and then a winning score with under five minutes to play.  "We put ourselves in a position to score but we just weren't able to finish it off,'' said Raheem Morris.
