  • Matt Ryan had little time to throw the football whenever he dropped back to pass and was sacked three times in the first half (four total sacks for the game). Even when Atlanta was in a position to put points on the board, poor execution plagued them. The biggest example of that came on the Falcons third drive of the day. They were able to bring the football as far as the New England 14-yard line, however, a 13-yard sack and a subsequent illegal formation penalty on a field goal attempt led to a missed 50-yard field goal by Younghoe Koo. The second half wasn’t much better for the Falcons as Ryan was picked off on back-to-back drives in the fourth quarter that effectively eliminated any chance of a late rally (or backdoor cover).
