OMG, that was tense. We lose Vince, we lose Dobson, we lose Dennard before the last play of the game. We almost squander a win. But we don't. 4-0. No Gronk, No Danny, no 40 minute shower snowglobe guy getting his legs eaten by gators. But, we win! Oh, Walt Coleman sucks. Gonzo is awesome and Talib is my hero!

Falcons P1: Start at the 20. Falcons run a pretty solid drive, mostly passing. There were a total of three runs, for 11 yards. However, the rest of the plays were passes. 2 catches by Gonzo for 29, 2 to White for 20, 1 to Douglas for 5, 1 to Rogers for 8, and a screen to Jones for 0. But, on 2nd and 3rd and goal from the 5, Ryan threw the ball away. The Falcons settled for a 23 yard FG and 3-0 lead. Wilfork went off hurt, and has been taken to the locker room. Bad.

Pats P1: Start at the 20. We have an ok drive. Ridley gets 5, and then pass to Devlin gets 15. Babineaux jumps giving us a first and 5. But Franks, in for Samuel, defends a pass to Dobson, then Ridley gets four. Brady picks up the first, but it's called by back an illegal shift on Bolden, then Thompkins drops the 3rd and 6 play. We punt.

Falcons P2: Start at the 25, after a touchback and Illegal Formation on the Pats. Falcons had a 5 play three and out. Two plays were called back by holding, and then face mask, by Sam Baker. Atlanta also used a time out on the drive.

Pats P2: Start at the 25. Coleman did not call Fair catch interference when Julian was laid out by a Falcon! Al and Cris did a great job in trying to cover for Coleman's error, but it was a terrible non call It was an interesting drive for us. Except for the first play, a 24 yard Ridley screen, the rest of the drive was runs. Ridley, Bolden, and Blount combined for 9 carries, for 50 yards, then Brady ends it with a 1 yard pass to Mulligan for a TD to give us the 7-3 lead. The first quarter ended during the drive.

Falcons P3: Start at the 26. The Falcons start and end with misses. Snelling starts the drive with a drop, then Ryan hits Gonzo twice for 22, plus a 15 yarder face mask on Hightower. Snelling ran for 2, then Colocco? caught a 4 yarder. Sam Baker was hurt on the play A pass to Julio got the first down, and then a second pass to him missed. Rogers ran for 6, and on 3rd down, Douglass converted, getting the Falcons to the 15. A miss to White, and then a stuffing of Snelling gave Atlanta to 3rd and 10. Snelling gets 8, Mike Smith chooses to go for it, correctly, and Ryan overthrows White.

Pats P3: Start at the 8. This is Blount and Thompkins drive. Brady hits Thompkins for 7, then Blount gets a 4 yarder for the first down. The Brady does a double play fake and we pick up 49 on a deep pass to Thompkins, aided by an amazing catch. However, after a 2 yard Blount run, Brady overthrows Thompkins twice, so we settle for a barely made 48 yard FG and the 10-3 lead.

Pats P6: Start at the 7. A good and bad drive. I miss the first play, since the stream comes back slow, then I see Edleman miss on 2nd and 8. Dobson gets 10 on 3rd before we get called for delay. A 17 yard pass to Thompkins keeps us moving, and after Ridley gets dropped for a 1 yard loss, Julian has back to back catches for 47 yards. Brady overthrows Thompkins, Ridley runs for 7, and Edleman gets 3 on 3rd and 3. Bolden gets us to the 4, on first and goal from the 7, then Brady goes to Thompkins.
