Research Notes

  • Matt Ryan was 12-for-13 targeting Tony Gonzalez Sunday, but 22-for-41 when targeting all other Falcons. Gonzalez's 12 receptions are more than he had total in the first three weeks (11).-Aqib Talib was lined up primarily against Julio Jones. Talib had an interception and defended three other passes that were intended for Jones. He also broke up Matt Ryan's fourth-down pass to Roddy White in the end zone in the final minute to seal the win for the Patriots.

  • Tom Brady now has a touchdown pass in 52 straight games, the second-longest streak in NFL history.
