TAMPA, Fla.(AP) — Eric Weems scored on a 102-yard kickoff return and Matt Ryan threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Michael Jenkins as the Falcons rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat the Buccaneers 28-24 on Sunday for their sixth straight victory.

Ryan led his sixth fourth-quarter comeback of the season for the NFC South leaders, keeping a 10-play, 67-yard march alive with a 25-yard completion to Roddy White on third-and-20. The Falcons (10-2) also benefited from a couple of costly penalties on the Bucs.

Rookie LeGarrette Blount rushed for 103 yards and fullback Earnest Graham threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to John Gilmore for Tampa Bay (7-5), which fell to 0-5 against teams with winning records.

Josh Freeman drove the Bucs into Falcons territory on the team's final possession, but Brent Grimes' interception ended the threat.
