Bill Belichick Has a Reason to Smile

The Patriots are one of the hottest teams in the NFL. Their four-game win streak is second only to the Tennessee Titans who have won their last six. The Titans (8) are also the only team in the AFC with more wins than the Patriots (6).

During the Patriots’ run, they have outscored the opposition 150-50. They have surged within a half-game of the AFC-East-leading Buffalo Bills. While the Patriots still have two likely intense battles on their schedule against the Bills, before that, New England has a road game in Week 11 that most will expect them to win.

The Patriots travel to ATL for their next matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta is coming off a pretty embarrassing loss. The Falcons 43-3 defeat at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10 was the only loss of the week that was more lopsided than the Patriots’ 38-point drubbing of the Cleveland Browns.

As if the Patriots’ momentum and the Falcons’ recent struggles weren’t reason enough to believe, Atlanta may be without their most versatile offensive weapon on Thursday night.

Possible Injury Break With the Falcons

According to’s Tom Pelissero, Falcons’ RB/Wr Cordarrelle Patterson is still recovering from a sprained ankle. Based on Pelissero’s report, it doesn’t sound as if Patterson will be cleared in time to play against the Patriots on Thursday Night Football.

Patterson is currently the Falcons’ leading rusher with 303 yards. He’s scored 2 TDs on the ground as well. Patterson is also second on the team in receptions with 39 for 473 yards and a team-leading 5 TDs.

If he cannot go, the Falcons won’t be completely devoid of offensive weapons. Rookie TE Kyle Pitts is likely to become an even bigger focal point of the offense. He has the speed and agility of a wide receiver with excellent hands and a long, powerful frame. He could create a matchup problem against Adrian Phillips.

Even still, the Patriots should win this game and push their win streak to five. Stay tuned for more information as the Patriots get set to get things going on a short week.
