Sunday, December 4, 2008. (AP) -- Michael Turner ran for 152 yards, John Abraham had three sacks and Jason Elam kicked a 34-yard field goal in overtime to give the Atlanta Falcons a crucial 13-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
Atlanta twice turned it over near the Tampa Bay end zone and had a huge breakdown on special teams, allowing Tampa Bay to block a punt with less than 3 minutes left in regulation. That set up Matt Bryant's tying field goal with 48 seconds left.
But the Falcons (9-5) stuffed Tampa Bay on the first possession of overtime as Abraham sacked fill-in quarterback Brian Griese on third down. After the punt, Atlanta drove downfield for Elam's winning kick, handing the Bucs (9-5) their second straight loss and tightening up the NFC South.
