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.
