Live from Bucs-Falcons



Stovallandclayton_2Okay, it's time for today's big NFC South matchup at the Georgia Dome, which, by the way, is pretty darned empty. It's pretty sad.

Anyhow, today's inactives for the Bucs are RB Michael Bennett, CB Keiwan Ratliff, LB Jeremiah Trotter, G Dan Buenning, TE Keith Heinrich, DE Greg Spires, DT Greg Peterson and QB Luke McCown.

Gaines Adams gets his second consecutive start, so we'll get a chance to see whether he follows up his encouraging performance from the Arizona game.

Michael Pittman and Michael Clayton are both a go, so expect to see them take active roles in the offense. Pittman's return apparently has pushed Bennett out of the picture, as he won't suit up today.

For the Falcons, Byron Leftwich gets the start at quarterback while injured receiver Joe Horn will be inactive.

Check the comments section below for more analysis and news throughout the afternoon. Kickoff is just a few moments away.
