TAMPA, Fla. -- Bobby Rainey rushed for 163 yards and scored three touchdowns Sunday to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 41-28 victory over the struggling Atlanta Falcons.

A waiver wire pickup who's filling in for the injured Doug Martin and Mike James, Rainey scored on first-half runs of 43 and 3 yards. He caught a 4-yard TD pass from Mike Glennon in the third quarter to help the Bucs (2-8) win for the second straight time following an 0-8 start.
