Falcons match up well. Their team speed really confounds Pats.


That was my main concern.  I heard all week that they were young and inexperienced but fast and athletic. 

I thought the Pats would take advantage of the Falcons' lack of size upfront, but instead the Falcons have been too fast and athletic for the Pats.  The Pats are a finesse team and the Falcons have kept them off their timing all game.

How do you kick a field goal in that situation?

That's one of the most bizarre catches I can remember, especially given the gravity of the situation.

It'd be a huge shame if the Pats ended up scoring a TD here but failing on a 2 point conversion.  That missed extra point from Gostkowski is inexcusable.

I think it compares better to the Kearse catch 2 years ago

Not really a football fan, but this has to be considered one of the greatest comebacks of all time sports history doesn't it?
