The Atlanta Falcons will face off in a Super Bowl rematch against the New England Patriots this Sunday night. The game is expected to be filled with offense, as both teams have stars all over the offensive side of the ball. The Falcons will travel up to Foxborough for the game.
The Falcons are coming off two pretty terrible losses. They lost to the somewhat respectable Buffalo Bills a few weeks back, and fell to the awful Miami Dolphins. The Falcons are definitely not playing their best football at the moment, and in order for them to stay competitive with the Patriots, they are going to have to be at the top of their game, or risk getting blown out.
The stadium is going to be rocking for this one, so the Falcons are going to have to prepare to get their play calls right through the noise. Matt Ryan has been very underwhelming this season, and he is going to have to step up in this game. If he plays another bad game, people are going to be questioning everything about him. He needs to play like last year’s MVP in this game.
Julio Jones also needs to come out and ball like he usually does. He has been uncharacteristically quiet this season, and something needs to change for him. He just does not seem to be playing the way he usually does. This could be the result of Ryan’s poor play, but even so, Jones is going to have to step up for this big game Sunday night.
This is going to be a fun one. Both teams have struggled so far this year when compared to their projections. Ryan needs to find his groove for this one, and cannot afford to let his team lose three games in a row.
