TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman provided a double threat Sunday, throwing for 180 yards and rushing for a score in the Buccaneers' 16-13 victory over Atlanta.

Freeman, who overcame two interceptions, connected on 22 of his 32 pass attempts and ran for 35 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown in the second quarter that put the Bucs up 10-3.

LeGarrette Blount rushed for 81 yards on 24 carries and Mike Williams reeled in five passes for 43 yards as Tampa Bay (2-1) ended a five-game losing skid against the Falcons (1-2).
