Sunday night of NFL Week 4 presents a marquee match-up between two great quarterbacks when Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visit Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons.
New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons
When: September 29, 8:30 p.m. ET
Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
Odds (as of 2013/09/24):
Spread: Falcons (-1), Patriots (+1)
Totals: O/U 49.5
Betting on the New England Patriots:
With Wes Welker leaving and the offense suffering due to injuries, quarterback Tom Brady is being forced to work with many young and inexperienced receivers.
Everybody knows that this is Brady’s team. The elite quarterback has shown that he can work wonders with any group. It showed in the Pats’ comeback win against the Bills and in Week 2 against the Jets, despite New England’s sloppy play in both games. The Pats also beat the Buccaneers 23-3 this past Sunday.
With the return of Pro-Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski on the horizon, look for the Pats offense to improve.
Can Tom Brady work his magic against the Falcons?
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons:
Three weeks into the season and the Atlanta Falcons have already suffered setbacks in their quest for a Super Bowl.
Although they won their Week 2 match-up, many of their key players went down with injuries, including starting running back, Steven Jackson. Despite their injury-riddled roster, they still have a solid offense thanks to the combination of quarterback Matt Ryan, wide receiver Julio Jones and tight end Tony Gonzalez. It wasn’t enough in Week 3, as they lost to the Dolphins 27-23.
Can Matt Ryan lead his Falcons to victory over the Pats?
