Scouts Inc. on Falcons-Patriots

The fine folks at Scouts Inc. take an X's and O's look at Sunday’s huge game between Atlanta and New England.

The Scouts Inc. guys watch lots of film as they prepare these things and they give 10 detailed observations. They also gave an edge to one team or the other at each position or unit, and they do a great job, but I’m a little stunned to see they’ve given the defensive backfield edge to Atlanta. I haven’t had a chance to see New England’s secondary yet this season, but I have seen Atlanta’s and I don’t think of this as an area of strength for the Falcons.

I can’t share the entire scouting report with you because it’s part of our Insider package, but you can see it in its entirety by clicking here.
