%name Against Patriots defense, Falcons lost in a fog

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons looked lost in a fog against a Patriots defense that hadn’t put up much resistance this season.

The Falcons were grounded in a thick New England peasouper on Sunday night, losing 23-7 in a rematch that had none of the excitement of the Super Bowl the teams took to overtime in February.

Following up a collapse in the NFL championship game, when they blew a 25-point lead, the Falcons (3-3) fell behind 23-0 on Sunday night before a touchdown with 4:09 left helped them avoid a shutout.
