Based on their 30-23 victory over the Falcons it would appear the talk about the Patriots demise has been greatly exaggerated.

 

QB Tom Brady finished the night with 316 yards and 2 TDs and looked to be gaining more confidence in his corps of young receivers.  

 

WR Kenbrell Thompkins, who made the team as an undrafted free agent, led the team with 6 receptions for 127 yards and a TD. 

 

Playing from behind most of the game, Falcons QB Matt Ryan racked up 421 yards passing with 2 TD passes to TE Tony Gonzalez.

 

What does the outcome of the Patriots vs. Falcons game prove?
