Here's an alternative to spending your Bucs-less weekend fretting over Tampa Bay's problems:
Keep an eye on the Falcons, scout and compare defensive woes.
The Falcons travel to Pittsburgh Sunday as 3.5-point underdogs to a Steelers team whose only victory this season is via a 30-27 stiff-arming of the Bucs on Monday night. Atlanta gave up 407 yards and 37 points to Andy Dalton and the Bengals -- the Bucs' Oct. 21 opponent in Cincinnati -- last week.
At the moment, Atlanta is keeping the Bucs out of the NFC South basement.
Other games ripe for the picking: Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit and Seattle are home underdogs.
Here's a look at the picks:
