Quick Postgame Recap: New England Patriots defeat Atlanta Falcons, 26-10

It wasn't pretty.  In fact, there were parts of this game that were downright ugly.  Overthrown balls, dropped balls.  But, as can be the case, when one part of the team isn't performing, the other picks up the slack.  In this particular case, it was the running game.  If it wasn't Fred Taylor at 21 carries for 105 yards, it was Sammy Morris or Kevin Faulk pounding the rock or grabbing some receptions.

Even thought the passing game wasn't really there, Randy Moss had some nice short inside catches for critical first downs.  However, they have to start making that connection so crucial for QB and WR.  Get on the same page, guys!!

More to come tonight.
