This is a big one, guys.
We've talked the key points of this game to the brink of death, so we'll just jump right in to the important thing: The game itself. It's a winnable contest, but it's going to take nothing short of excellence from both sides of the balls. I don't doubt we can pull it off, even in the face of an unfavorable weather forecast.
I actually have the day off and will be joining you to chart the way through the game. Hope you'll take the time to stop by the site during the game!
Where? Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts
Weather? Good chance of heavy rain. Really good chance of passing being affected.
Injuries? Jerious Norwood is extremely unlikely to play. The Patriots' injury report is a minefield because you never know if they're bluffing, but Jerod Mayo and Wes Welker are unlikely to play, Randy Moss is unknown and a host of cornerbacks are questionable. This is actually a pretty banged up roster.
Odds? New England over Atlanta 4.5, O/U 46.5
Foe? You'll be wanting to visit Pats Pulpit, where the Patriots love flows like wine. Be sure to visit and comment, but please be polite.
GO FALCONS! Let's beat these Patriots with muskets!
