The Buccaneers’ rematch against the meeting Atlanta Falcons is just the undercard for the headliner on Sunday night, which is the acceptance of previous head mentor and current ESPN Sunday Night Football expert Jon Gruden into the Bucs Ring of Honor at halftime.
Buccaneers vs Falcons: Injuries continue to plague Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who will miss Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Falcons have won three straight in series. … Buccaneers (34.8 points allowed per game) and Falcons (32.6) are league’s worst scoring defenses. … In five career games against Atlanta, Jameis Winston has 12 TD passes, two interceptions. … RB Peyton Barber ran for two TDs in last game against Falcons but has not scored this season. … WR DeSean Jackson has more than 100 yards receiving in three of four games this season. Jackson and WR Mike Evans are two of four in NFL to average more than 100 yards and have at least three TD catches. Others are Minnesota’s Adam Thielen and New Orleans’ Michael Thomas. … Evans has 42 catches for 640 yards, six TDs, in last seven games against Falcons. … TE Cameron Brate has TD catch in two straight games. … DE Jason Pierre-Paul has four sacks in last three games. … Falcons have lost three straight for worst start in coach Dan Quinn’s four seasons. … After first three losses by combined 13 points, Falcons suffered blowout defeat last week at Pittsburgh. … Falcons’ defense already without S Keanu Neal, S Ricardo Allen and LB Deion Jones, and could be missing DT Grady Jarrett (ankle) for second straight week. … QB Matt Ryan has combined 793 yards passing, eight TDs, no interceptions in last two home games and now faces Bucs’ last-ranked pass defense. … WR Julio Jones had 12 catches for 253 yards, two TDs in last game against Tampa Bay, but has no TD catches this season. … Rookie WR Calvin Ridley leads NFL with six TD catches. … DE Takk McKinley has six sacks in last six home games. … Fantasy tip: Winston could be poised for big game against Falcons’ decimated defense. Falcons have allowed three TD passes in four straight games. Winston threw three TD passes with no interceptions in last meeting between teams.
Panthers vs Redskins: The Carolina Panthers expect quarterback Cam Newton to have his favorite target back for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. If it seems like the Redskins haven’t beaten the Panthers in a while, that’s because it’s true. Washington has not beaten Carolina since George W. Bush was President.

A lot has happened in the world since then.
The Redskins last win over the Panthers came in late November of 2006, with Joe Gibbs on the sideline. Jason Campbell led the Redskins with just 118 yards of passing, Chris Cooley caught a touchdown pass and Ladell Betts ran for more than 100 yards in that game.
Since that 2006 win, the Panthers have beaten the Redskins in five straight contests. Carolina has beaten Washington at FedEx Field, and in Charlotte.
Their last meeting came late in the 2016 season, when the Redskins were fighting for a playoff spot and Carolina had already been eliminated from the playoff hunt. It was also a Monday night game, which generally spells doom for Jay Gruden teams.
