The Atlanta Falcons would like get a win here, get back to .500 and start playing the way we all expected them to before the season began. The Patriots would like to be 4-0. Both teams can't get their wish.
The Falcons have a good shot of winning this Sunday Night Football contest (on NBC!), since they're at home and face a depleted Patriots passing attack. They'll need to play disciplined football, avoid mistakes, be willing to go for it against a tough defense and keep Matt Ryan upright in order to win.
