New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons: Halftime Thoughts

Written by 

The Patriots and Falcons are at half time of a 10 - 10 game.  

Some good defense through the first half by the Patriots.  Two redzone trips end up with 10 points for the Falcons.  The Falcons went for it on fourth down and Matty "Melts Like Ice" Ryan misses a wide open Roddy White.  He did look good in a two minute drill to tie things up.

Could it be I actually like the play calling by Josh McDaniels,  the balance has been something astute Patriots fans have been calling for all season long. 

Tom Brady extends his streak of game with a touchdown pass to 52 games. 

Tony Gonzalez is still a stud at age 37.  Seven catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. 

In Micheal Holley's book War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team there is an exchange between Bill Belichick and Falcon's general manager Thomas Dimitroff about trading up for Julio Jones.  Belichick advised Dimitroff that it wasn't worth the draft capitol to get him.  Through two quarters Belichick has his defense shutting Jones down to two catches for six yards

The Patriots will get the ball for the first time this season to start the second half. 

The Patriots have not scored a second half touchdown all season.  They will need to reverse this trend if they want to come out victorious.
