Sunday Night Football open thread

The 49ers-less Sunday is just about wrapped up. We have one more game tonight, then MNF tomorrow, and then it's on to 49ers-Texans SNF week!

Sunday Night Football should be a fun one as the Atlanta Falcons host the New England Patriots. The Patriots are undefeated, although they haven't exactly played inspired football. That bodes well for the team given that they should get Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola back some time soon. For now, Tom Brady is dealing with a random assortment of pass catching options as the team tries to make do with rookies and duct tape.

The Falcons are 1-2, and coming off a tough loss to the upstart Dolphins. The Falcons have a ton of offensive talent, but can't quite seem to bring it all together. They will be without Steven Jackson, and Roddy White remains banged up. White will play, while Jacquizz Rodgers will get the start in place of Jackson. This game is on the Georgia Dome turf, so we'll see if we get an entertaining track meet.
