Tampa Bay's Micheal Spurlock ran into history in the Buccaneers 37-3 win over Atlanta. His kickoff return for a touchdown was the first ever for the franchise in it's 32 years in the NFL.

The historic moment comes in a game where the Bucs won the NFC South for the second time in three seasons.

Ronde Barber returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown and Earnest Graham scored a touchdown rushing for a team-record sixth consecutive game to boost Tampa Bay to a 9-and-5 record

The loss was the fifth in a row for the 3-and-11 Falcons. It wrapped up a week in which suspended quarterback Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison for his role in a dogfighting ring, a lopsided loss to New Orleans and the sudden resignation of first year coach Bobby Petrino.
