New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons Final Betting Prediction
Ryan never plays two terrible games in a row. But although Atlanta’s quarterback could play great on Sunday, it may not be enough.
The New England Patriots are good in every phase of the game. The Pats average 27.5 points per and the defense allows just 17.7 points each game.
One of the reasons the Patriots have so easily beaten teams is because Mac Jones has hit his stride. The rookie quarterback is completing 69% of his passes. Jones’ TD to INT ratio in New England’s last 3 games is 6-to-1.
Atlanta’s defense is horrendous. The Falcons do nothing well on D, which means Josh McDaniel will come up with a game plan that exploits the ATL through the air and on the ground. Unless Mac Jones plays unlike he has for most of this season, New England wins and covers.
