Moneyball – Week 3 Review

Sorry about the delay, but due to my brother’s wedding over the weekend and my own procrastination, I didn’t get to review the Patriots game as early as I wanted.

This really was a dull game from the Falcons perspective. They did little to take advantage of the few opportunities they got, and the Patriots really just dictated this one from the start. Had the Pats been able to connect on a few more throws, this game would have been a major blowout.
