This week's matchup pits the New England Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons. Kickoff at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta is scheduled for 8:30pm ET (09/29).

Despite big expectations for the Falcons following their trip to the NFC Championship last season, Matt Ryan and company have dropped two of their first three games. Their most recent loss came at the hands of the Dolphins, though the Falcons totaled nearly a hundred more yards than their opponent in that contest.

The Patriots are 3-0, though they won their first two games by a total of five points. Against the Buccaneers last weekend, Tom Brady's inexperienced offense looked to be coming together as the quarterback hooked up with rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins for two touchdowns.

These two squads will undoubtedly move the football against each other, so this matchup should come down to which defense can make meaningful stops down the stretch.
