In case you missed it, check out our full-length preview from Friday afternoon. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get down to business.

Tom Brady and company are in town for a massive game today (Sunday), and the difference between a 2-2 record and a 1-3 record for the Falcons is extremely wide. Early injury reports surrounding Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola have both of Brady’s top targets listed as “out” for the game, but don’t sleep on Brady and company even if his weapons aren’t at full strength.

Our trusted confidants in Las Vegas have installed the Falcons as a small favorite (between 1 and 3 points depending on who you believe), but I’m sure that doesn’t do much to assuage the fears of Falcons nation. On a neutral field, the worry level would be much higher, but when you realize what Matt Ryan and Mike Smith’s home record is (34-7), that brings some confidence.

Hit us up in the comments below (used as a game thread!) and stay tuned for post-game analysis, including a full recap shortly after the game.

    Sam Baker is doing really terribly on this drive. That’s two bad penalties on him. Holding and a facemask.

  • Carlos Collazo

    The defense is giving up anything and everything that New England tries to get on the ground right about now.

  • Carlos Collazo

    And the Falcons give up an early touchdown thanks to some poor tackling across the board, with Trufant giving a pitiful effort on the goal line.

  • Carlos Collazo

    Well, apparently it wasn’t a TD. But it’s probably about to be.

  • Carlos Collazo

    Now Brady just throws it to Mulligan for an easy TD. Moore almost broke it up.

  • Carlos Collazo

    The Falcons are still struggling in the red zone, this time Matt Ryan misses Julio Jones on 4th and 2, and it wasn’t even close.

  • Carlos Collazo

    The defense looks completely different in the second half. Good 3 and out to start the half and then a big victory to stop Brady on third down at the goal line.

    Falcons offensive line is starting to look a bit flimsy late in the third quarter.
