The Atlanta Falcons travel to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots in what could be a possible shootout on Sunday night football
Both offenses are potent. To be precise, New England is first in total offensive yards and Atlanta is fifth. Where they differ from each other are the defenses.
The Patriots are dead last in total yards allowed and the Falcons are tenth. The Falcons stat is a little misleading since the Falcons last two opponents have been Miami and Buffalo, two teams that do not have great offenses.
Some interesting stats from this game :
- Atlanta hasn’t beaten New England since 1998
- Patriots beat the Falcons 34-28 in Superbowl LI last February, recording the largest come-from-behind victory in Superbowl history.
- New England has defeated Atlanta five straight times
- The Falcons are 2-0 on the road this year versus 1-2 in their new home
Points should be scored in this one and we’re gonna go with the home team to secure the victory
