The Atlanta Falcons are playing the Patriots Sunday in Houston. Here is everything you need to know before the game.
The Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots will play the final NFL game of the season this Sunday at 6:30 on FOX. The biggest storyline for either team has continued to be Tom Brady’s suspension and what he did or didn’t know about footballs being altered in the playoffs two years ago.
Whether or not Brady had any idea is debatable what isn’t debatable is the fact that it is time to let it go and focus on this season’s ending and the seasons to come. Tom Brady is one of the greatest players ever to play the game regardless of what he did or didn’t do.
For the Falcons taking down the villainized Patriots would be the perfect ending to a season that has seen them come to just their second Super Bowl in Super Bowl history. The biggest challenge for the Falcons will be finding a way to slow down the Patriot’s passing attack.
For the Patriots finding a way to slow down all of the Falcon’s weapons will be close to impossible. The Super Bowl looks to be a shootout that should give plenty of entertainment. Here is all the information that you need to know:
