This game involves the highest scoring team in the NFL in the Atlanta Falcons against the top scoring defense in the NFL in the New England Patriots. Atlanta averages nearly 34 points per game while the Patriots are allowing just 15.6 points per game. The Falcons troubles in the past has been scoring touchdowns in the red zone. That came up a lot last year and some this year where the Falcons are held to field goals instead of getting into the end zone. Atlanta should be able to move the football between the 20’s but what happens when the Falcons get in the red zone. That is where the Patriots defense is going to thrive. Expect New England to play off the receivers in zones allowing the underneath patterns avoiding big plays from the Falcons offense. Atlanta has five losses on the year while the Patriots had two and only one with Tom Brady on the field. The Falcons defense has given up lots of points to good passing teams in the Chargers, Buccaneers, Packers in the regular season and the Saints as these opponents scored 30 or greater points. Atlanta is the 28th ranked passing defense in the NFL as they allow 266 yards per game. The Falcons is giving up 25.4 points per game which is 27th and fourth worst in the NFL. New England figures to score on this Falcons defense and the Patriots play good red zone defense. What makes this game really puzzling is the Patriots did not play a tough schedule. But in the AFC Championship Game New England faced a quality opponent in the Pittsburgh Steelers and allowed just 9 points to the Steelers offense in the first 56 ½ minutes of the game until Pittsburgh put up a touchdown and two point conversion late when the outcome was already decided.
