Now change "Antonio Brown" to "Julio Jones". Let's see how Matty does when his first read is rarely an option.

I'm taking every Julio prop under, and ATL's point total under. If Pats get to 27, they win; if they get to 30 (and why wouldn't they?), they cover.

BTW, one thing no one talks about when wondering if the NE defense is any good: the help they get from the offense and the special teams. NE wins the field position game week after week after week. Patriots punter Ryan Allen almost never puts one in the end zone, he is consistently pinning teams inside the 5-7 yard line.

Having great players is gravy, but it's stuff like that (avoiding mistakes like punting into the end zone, committing penalties, committing turnovers) that wins this team most of its games.

Say this stat on twitter but never bothered trying to verify it so it could be wrong.

Julio Jones 2016 splits (reg and post)

≥ 100 Yds rec - (4-4, .500)

≤ 99 Yds rec - (9-1, .900)
If it is correct i think that goes to show the quality of Atlanta's weapons in that they are more successful when Ryan spreads it around to everyone.

I thought being in a playoffs fan.t@.sy comp would enhance my watching experience. But now I need the Patriots to crush in order to take manies. Horrifying position to be in.

You clearly know dick about how the Falcons offense plays football. You think this is the first time teams have done this to Julio this year? LOLOLOLOL! You really think Matt drops back and looks at Julio first every time? LOLOLOL! He only set a NFL record for different players he threw a touchdown to this year. Holy **** I cannot wait to beat New England. Please sell out to stop Julio I beg of you. Coleman touchdown, Sanu touchdown, Freeman touchdown, and even still Julio touchdown because you can't stop the man.

Is it the 5th yet?

You're a Falcs fan you're better than this. Ryan's 2nd year in a new offense, adding Gabriel, Sanu and a fairly healthy/improved Coleman. Entirely new football team on that side of the ball. Doesn't have to lock onto the best WR in the NFL now.

Hey Samberg if you call spitting cold hard facts insufferable, that's a you problem.

How do you not mention Mack? Gabriel didn't come on until pretty late this season.

Sanu was huge over Roddy.

Admit it tho last season Matt Ryan at times looked horrendous. I can't recall a player who went from looking like that to MVP in any sport.

Re: SUPER BOWL LI: GOOD (+3) vs. EVIL (o/u 58)

So I thought "I'm drunk, I'm stupid, I'm a pats fan" was just some Atlanta journalist throwing some shade at NE fans. I didn't realize it was a legit quote by the guy arrested for pulling the fire alarm. That is outstanding. No shame.

My biggest impact player this season, personally, has been Keanu Neal. That dude lays the hat.

Any Pats fan complaining about another fan base should be auto banned until the day after the Super Bowl.

Seems like most Pats fans in this thread have been pretty reasonable, so not sure what that's directed at

Pats fans have been there done that. ATL fans are unsure of how to behave at this point.

We know we're going to win the game. We're acting accordingly. At least that's where I stand.

No better way to start this upcoming 6-7 year run of dominance than winning the SB against the Belichicks
