Week 11 in the NFL kicks off in Atlanta as the 4-5 Falcons welcome the New England Patriots to town. Can Mac Jones build on his already impressive rookie campaign and extend the Patriots winning run to 5 games, or will Matt Ryan get Atlanta back on track with an upset win at home?
The Falcons suffered an embarrassing 40-point loss at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys last week as their topsy-turvy season continues. Things won’t get much easier for Ryan and his Falcons offense as they’ll likely be without versatile weapon Cordarelle Patterson and facing a Patriots side that ranks #2 in the NFL in Points Allowed Per Game.
Bill Belichick looks as if he might’ve done it again. The Patriots are riding high on a 4-game winning streak, with rookie passer Mac Jones seemingly getting better with every game. This looks eerily similar to the Patriot teams early in Tom Brady’s career… That’s enough to have every side in the NFL at least getting a little hot under the collar. The defense is an elite unit, add that to an impressive run game, and that’s Belichick’s preferred recipe for success. New England has won three of their last four games by multiple scores, whilst the Falcons have been blown out twice already this season.
