keys to beating the bucs

falcons kicker morten andersen was named the nfc's special teams player of the week after scoring eight points last week. andersen provided this week's keys to today's game.

control clock

we have to control the clock by running the football effectively. we have to keep the ball. if we can establish the run, like in most games that would open everything else up.

big plays

there must be some big plays from special teams. we have to win field position and you do that by effective punt and kick coverage. we have to make them go the full field. when we return the ball, we have to get positive yardage and affect field position that way so we don't have as far to go to get into the red zone.

home crowd

the crowd noise, the 12th man. when you're at home, you've got to have the crowd to be into it when [the opposing team is] on the field, to disrupt them from communicating, like they're crowd does when they're at home.

penalties

we can't have penalties and we have to play smart football. we have to eliminate penalties, especially in third-down situations. let's not get penalties in the red zone or when we're in third-and-short, which would put us in third-and-long. on defense, if they're third and short, let's not give them a first down by an encroachment or a personal foul.
