Offensive spotlight: It wouldn’t be right if this offensive highlight weren’t given to Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette, who led the Bucs in carries (14), rushing yards (56), rushing touchdowns (1), targets (11), receptions (10), receiving yards (83) and receiving touchdowns (1). Fournette finished the game with a first-run PFF grade of 91.9.
Defensive spotlight: Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett has been a difference-maker this year, despite less-than-ideal help around him on the front seven. Jarrett earned an 86.2 grade on first review; he even got a sack on Brady on a crucial third down that could have given the Falcons the ball back, though the play was nullified by a questionable roughing the passer call.
Rookie spotlight: Pending review, Buccaneers rookie defensive lineman Logan Hall finished the contest with his highest grade yet at 68.2. A big reason for that was Hall getting the second sack of his career.
Offensive line spotlight: The Bucs' pass-blocking unit, which has been under fire as of late, held up well against the Falcons, earning a pass-blocking grade of 77.2 and not allowing a sack on the day. They also held the Falcons to just four total pressures and a 10% pass rush win rate.
