Who’s in and who’s out for the game that will determine first place in the NFC South?

The Tampa Bay Bucs and Atlanta Falcons are battling for first place in the division following the Saints’ loss on Thursday night. The Falcons are a surprise 3-3 while the Bucs could also be considered a surprise 3-2.

Both teams appear to be relatively healthy – an anomaly this late into the season – with the only questions on the Bucs’ side. Anthony Nelson is still trying to return from a concussion while Vita Vea missed practice time this week due to foot soreness. Good news for the Bucs is both will be playing this week.

Vita Vea has battled through a few injuries already this season, first a strained pec and now a foot issue but he’s managed to be effective throughout. However, look for Vea to get a few more snaps off than normal in this one.

Here are the inactive players for the Bucs and Falcons ahead of a week seven just win for both teams;

Tampa Bay Bucs:

CB – Derrek Pitts Jr.

OLB – Markees Watts

OL – Brandon Walton

DL – Patrick O’Connor

TE – David Wells

Atlanta Falcons:

DL – Eli Ankou

DL – Albert Huggins

DL – Joe Gaziano

TE – John FitzPatrick

OL – Jovaughn Gwyn

CB – Clark Phillips

QB – Logan Woodside

The Bucs and Falcons kickoff inside Raymond James Stadium at 1:00 p.m. ET on FOX with Chris Myers and Robert Smith on the call.
