Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots Open Thread

When the Falcons and Patriots collide, there's only appropriate response. Talk it out!

If nothing else, this should be an intensely entertaining pre-season game. Both teams are the kind to take a meaningless game way too seriously and pull some truly crazy shaz, so you're likely to see backups performing elaborate choreographed dance routines at some point. I can't think of a better team to gear up for the season with.

But hell, it's still pre-season. Crack open a cold one, kick your loved ones out of your watching space and settle down with some happy football for a few hours. With any luck, I'll be able to join for part of it, though a pesky Department of Transportation meeting is going to do its best to get in my way.

Find the details on this exciting contest after the jump.

Who? Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots, 8 p.m. EST

Where? Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia

Weather? Zero. This is a deceased weather area.

Injuries? Brent Grimes may not play, which means Chris Owens could really catapult himself up the depth chart with a great performance. Dunta Robinson is also out. Jerious Norwood is a question mark. There's dings and such elsewhere, but heck, the backups will be in quickly anyways.

The Patriots are all injured, on account of coming in contact with Tom Brady's hair.

Foe? You'll want to check out Pats Pulpit, where Boston accents and Patriots adoration mingle. Remember to be polite.

GO FALCONS! Let's bring out the cannons for these Patriots!
