The (4-2) New England Patriots host the (3-2) Atlanta Falcons.
The Patriots are looking to keep their lead over the AFC East and clinch a winning record for the first half of the season. New England has made small defensive improvements on a weekly basis and they’ll all have to come together for this Super Bowl rematch between two teams that have come up short of their preseason plaudits.
According to the Patriots media guide, “In the previous seven Super Bowl rematches, the Super Bowl victor has hosted the regular season meeting five times, winning four of the five contests.” Hopefully the Patriots can make it five out of six.
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are also 5-0 against the Falcons. Let’s hope the Patriots can make it six out of six.
