(Keys to Game)

Patriots expected to jam Falcons WRs-disrupt patterns-force Ryan to hold the ball-take away chunk plays…Big matchup will be CB-Malcom Butler-vs-Julio Jones….Can they cover Taylor Gabriel-Mo Sanu in single coverage if they double Jones… Will they stop RBs from making big plays run and pass…Can you defend tight ends if you take other things away.

Falcons defense will be challenged deep…Must stop yards after catch….defend sideline to side line…Can you defend tight ends in the game?….Can Atlanta quick pass rush get Brady off his spot…

(Final Score)…Patriots 31-24…Belicheck too many defensive schemes for Ryan to deal with…Will be turnovers…Will be penalties.
