Falcons try to avoid trip to 'Trap House'

(TSX / STATS) -- FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons, who are in the thick of the NFC playoff race, don't plan to look past Tampa Bay and quarterback Jameis Winston in a classic trap-game scenario.

"Focusing on the next team could be a little bit distracting," Falcons linebacker De'Vondre Campbell said. "We have to focus on (Tampa Bay) because every game at this point is a must-win."

The Falcons watched the Monday night game earlier this week. They were stunned by Miami's victory over New England where the unstoppable Tom Brady failed to pick up one first down on third down.
