ATLANTA (AP) -- Chris Redman threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White with 23 seconds remaining, and the Atlanta Falcons pulled out a 20-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday after losing offensive stars Matt Ryan and Michael Turner to injuries.
The Falcons (6-5) were in deep trouble after Jason Elam missed another field goal try, this one from 43 yards, and the Bucs (1-10) drove into Atlanta territory.
But Connor Barth just missed on a 51-yard try with 2:30 left, giving the Falcons one more chance. Redman, who took over after Ryan injured his right big toe on Atlanta's first series, calmly directed a 59-yard drive that may have saved the season.
