Devin Hester is excited to play against former coach and friend Lovie Smith when the Falcons take on the Bucs in Week 3. "That situation goes so deep because he was the first coach who took a chance on me coming out of college in Miami," Hester said. "From that point, I just had so much respect for him.
Chip Kelly's offense piled up 458 yards of offense in the Eagles' 30-27 win over the Colts Monday night. It was just another day at the office for Kelly, has just 153 yards rushing through the first two games of the season and is averaging fewer than four yards per carry.
The Atlanta Falcons host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a divisional matchup between a pair of teams that both lost last week. A short turnaround is always a good thing as the Falcons got demolished by a Bengals offense that was missing its biggest weapon in A.J. Green .
Throughout his time in the league, Steve Tasker always was able to rise above what everyone had always thought was the ideal description of a professional football player. They had to have the right weight, be tall enough, and could never be weaker than their opponent.
It looked like 2013 all over again for the Atlanta Falcons' offense last week, but Matt Ryan is blaming himself for the unit's poor performance. The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback says Atlanta has abundant mistakes to correct before Tampa Bay visits the Georgia Dome Thursday.
The Bucs defense will play Thursday in Atlanta without starting middle LB Mason Foster , who dislocated his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Rams. The Bucs have a short week to prepare for the Falcons, with little time to mend a long list of injuries.
The Falcons have a longer-than-anticipated injury report heading into this week, but when it comes to Jake Matthews , all we've got is good news.

The next 3 weeks will determine where the Falcons stand. Home Thursday against Tampa Bay, and 2 road games against the Giants and Vikings .
Lured away from premature retirement , middle linebacker Rolando McClain is leading a Dallas Cowboys defense that has exceeded meager expectations through two weeks. The highlight of Sunday's 26-10 victory over the Titans was McClain's circus catch on an interception that would have gone for a touchdown if the officials had ruled it correctly from the beginning of the play.

Sep 14, 2014; Cincinnati, OH, USA; Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is tackled by Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap in the second quarter at Paul Brown Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports Before getting into the numbers, the Atlanta Falcons players clearly came out with a different mindset this week than they had versus the Saints.
Well that wasn't fun. But the good news is that the Falcons made it out of that game relatively healthy, notwithstanding all the chippy play in the fourth quarter.
What it means: The 1-1 Falcons still have plenty of work to do on both sides of the ball, but particularly on defense, after getting dominated. The final score would have been worse had Bengals kicker Mike Nugent not missed three field goals, although one was a 55-yarder.
