Week 4 Game Thread: Patriots vs. Falcons

Game thread for the New England Patriots week four match-up against the Atlanta Falcons.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Game time is here! It seems that every year, I somehow forget exactly how painful the wait is for Sunday Night Football. I mean don't get me wrong, I love watching football all day, but having to wait 12 hours after waking up for it is like pure torture.

Tonight's game, featuring the Patriots on the road against the Falcons, will be the Patriots first national television game of the 2013 season. This one figures to be a tough match-up for the Patriots, but at the same time, is an opportunity for them to make a serious statement. The Patriots don't have their best playmakers, but have a chance to extend their undefeated record against a strong Falcons team on a national stage.

The Falcons however, are going to be playing with a sense of urgency following a 1-2 start and they have one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL. I hate to pick against the Patriots, but I've got to do it sometime. Greg's Prediction: Falcons 24 Patriots 20
