The trouble is that the Patriots really haven't played many tough teams. Pittsburgh would have been a better barometer of this matchup, but Bell got hurt which severely limited their offense. So even though the Patriots have the best defense, I wonder how good it is versus a truly elite offense. I'm not sure who on Atlanta's schedule we can look at to see how they might do against the Patriots. Maybe the Patriots numbers are inflated, but they're at least good on both sides of the ball. Seattle was was somewhat similar in that sense, but only when their best defensive players were healthy. Missing a key guy down the stretch, they kind of sucked. So the most recent matchup between those two isn't a great indicator. The first matchup was a close loss for Atlanta. The Chiefs were another team with decent play on both sides of the ball. The Falcons lost a close one to them. I think the Patriots are at least as good as those two teams, and probably better. Atlanta played a fair amount of shootouts with good offensive teams. I'd expect it to be another one of those vs. New England. But if you add in the way that top defenses have won out over top offenses in recent years, I think most indicators, if not all, point to the Patriots winning.

The date of the game was one day off, so it site wouldn't let people pick after 5:30pm yesterday. Should be fixed.
