After back-to-back dominant performances, the Falcons had a major let-down on Sunday in the 35-22 loss to Tampa Bay.

It's a short week before Thursday's game with New Orleans and after a dominant defensive performance three weeks ago against the Saints, you have to wonder if the Falcons defense can return to that form.

"You don't have to worry about Drew Brees going anywhere. He's not running out of the pocket for first downs so that changes the dynamic completely. You have to figure why the Bucs ran the ball with success on you and get back to taking Kamara and Murray away and then we'll get to the passer. Because the QB is not a run threat this week, now you come up and play more man coverage, hug up on the receivers like you did before. They were worried about Jameis extending plays or running with the ball and that's why they didn't play as much man in this game."
