Tom Brady and Matt Ryan have exchanged blows, each throwing a touchdown pass in the first half. Ryan has had a bit more success moving the football. He's thrown for over 175 yards to Brady's 96.
New England held its own defensively through the first 30 minutes of the game, but an injury to Vince Wilfork has put a damper on the evening for that unit.
For two teams that have thrived on offense in recent years, the Falcons and Patriots have been locked in a defensive struggle in Week 4. Both are struggled to generate consistent yardage on the ground and have been forced to rely on their quarterbacks to make plays.
Lucky for these two teams, they have two of the best quarterbacks in the business. And both are known for coming through in clutch situations. With a tie score at halftime, it stands to reason that Brady or Ryan will have to come up big for their respective team to win.
