The Atlanta Falcons travel up to New England in the much anticipated Super Bowl rematch.

The Falcons have been looking forward to this game since February 3rd. The teams look to be the same since last seeing each other back in February, except for a few additions on both teams.

The Patriots are coming off a 24-17 win against the Jets in an AFC East battle. Tom Brady looked good with 257 yards and two Touchdowns. The Patriots biggest threats seem to be Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks so far this season. Their defense has been their biggest weakness so far through the first part of the season giving up 26.5 points per game.

The Atlanta Falcons are hoping to use this game to bounce back from the losses to both the Bills and the Dolphins. The Falcons blew another second half lead last week to the Dolphins and ultimately ended up losing 20-17. Matt Ryan looked as if he was about to lead the comeback just for his pass to bounce off Hooper’s hands and allowed Reshad Jones to come up with an interception.

Expect the offense to come out strong tonight pumped up and ready to go. The defense will have to come up big and be able to play fast and physical. I’m fully preparing to see a very tight game and the game come down to the wire with this one and falcons being able to pull out the victory.

The game will be at 8:30pm Est on NBC
