On Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots will travel to Mercedes-Benz Stadium to face the Atlanta Falcons in an attempt to make it five wins in a row.
In four weeks, the Patriots have gone from 2-4 to being unanimously branded “a playoff club.” This is due in large part to some amazing performances, like the one they put up against the Cleveland Browns last week, in which they won 45-7. The Patriots would jump the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East division standings with a win on Thursday, at least until Sunday.
The Falcons have had a roller-coaster season and are currently 4-5, with a little chance of making the playoffs. To win games, the team has relied significantly on quarterback Matt Ryan performing admirably. When Ryan falters, the Falcons falter as well. The veteran quarterback had just 117 passing yards and two interceptions in the Falcons’ 43-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last week.

New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Patriots have won six straight meetings with the Falcons. The most memorable matchup between the two was Super Bowl 51, in which Atlanta led 28-3 late in the third quarter before New England rallied in the fourth quarter to tie the game and send it to overtime. Brady and the Patriots needed only one drive to win the game and record the biggest Super Bowl comeback in history.
New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons prediction
The Falcon’s offense can be unstoppable at times, but its defense is one of the worst in the NFL in terms of statistics. The Patriots have won four straight games, with their offense playing well and their defense doing admirably. On paper, this appears to be a no-brainer. But, as the last two weeks have demonstrated, anything can happen in the NFL.
