%name Pats find footing, Falcons still stuck after Super rematch

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Last season’s Super Bowl teams are heading in very different directions as they approach the halfway point of the 2017 season.

The Patriots (5-2) posted 23-7 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night , their third consecutive win. After weeks of questions, New England is again resembling the team that pulled off the largest comeback win in Super Bowl history.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons (3-3) look like a team hopelessly stuck in the muck after their third straight loss, unable to find the identity that had them so close to hoisting their first Lombardi trophy eight months ago.
