Josh McCown returned to quarterback the Bucs but it made no difference to the result as despite another 300- yard passing game, the Falcons pulled away in the fourth quarter to send Tampa Bay to 1-8.  A lack of team discipline was shown when rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins saddled the Bucs with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after his touchdown with an illegal celebration in the endzone.”
