Patriots Winning

New England is on a roll right now with a four game winning streak. Some of these have been tough games too. The Patriots are looking to take the AFC East if they keep going like the way they are now.

Falcons Struggle

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons are struggling. They just got beat by the Dallas Cowboys. They do have the home field advantage Thursday night at the  Mercedes-Benz Stadium (although the Falcons have not won a game at home yet this season - that’s so hard to believe, but it’s true).

Patriots Key Components

Mac Jones is doing an awesome job at quarterback. He is well on his way to win rookie of the year. His receivers, led by Jakobi Meyers, come to play and the line is giving him time to make the reads. The Patriots defense is playing great with a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks.
