3 Things the Atlanta Falcons must do to finally beat Tom Brady
By Nick Halden
The Atlanta Falcons are headed into a game in which they are expected to be blown out a week after getting an upset win at home against the Browns. Tom Brady’s Bucs have never lost to the Atlanta Falcons in his three years in Tampa.
If the Atlanta Falcons are even able to compete in this game it will be considered a step forward for a team that hasn’t faced a team as talented as the Bucs this season. While Tampa Bay might only be 2-2 on the season they have had a brutal early slate that has included the Saints, Cowboys, Chiefs, and Packers.
Brady has owned the Falcons and in all likelihood, that trend is going to continue on Sunday. Comparing the rosters it is hard to find an advantage for the Falcons. With Cordarrelle Patterson out for the time being, Atlanta should be focused on getting the ball to Kyle Pitts and Drake London.
While they are two of the best young pass catchers in the league Brady has Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Russell Gage, and if healthy Chris Godwin at his disposal. There isn’t a clear advantage in this game for the Falcons and their path to victory is going to be next to impossible and would start with making one big change that could catch the Bucs off guard.
