The Patriots looked their old selves during this game. Sure, it's only one game, but improvement was shown by the defense, and while the offense sputtered some of the time, they were crisp for much of the time, too. Atlanta had to watch Tom and his offense march up and down the field while their O was stymied by our D. Even special teams got into the act by blocking a kick.
The Falcons started this season looking as if they had no Super Bowl hangover, but they've lost their last four games. Hangover!
Fog rolled into Foxboro during the end of the second quarter. After halftime it was so thick the people up in the nosebleeds couldn't see the field! Reminiscent of a 1997 game in which fog enveloped the field and the players couldn't see a thing. Happened at Fenway Park with the Red Sox on more than one occasion, too. :)
The Pats won, Miami beat the Jets, and the Bills won.
