I didn’t watch the game — I couldn’t bear to watch it. I did check the score every thirty minutes, though. The first two quarters of Sunday Night Football between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons suggested that both teams’ defense were giving stellar performances. Their offensive players shook their tail feathers in the second half, and despite a victory within the Falcons reach, the Patriots did what they do best: outscore opponents in the fourth quarter. New England 30 and Atlanta 23.
