Sunday Night Football takes place tonight between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons in week 4 of the NFL 2013 regular season.
The Patriots will be looking to make it four straight wins and maintain their perfect start to the season, as well as improve their offense which has stuttered at times so far through the first three weeks of the season.
The game will start at 8.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
New England have been efficient in their march through September so far, and have claimed three wins from their three games so far.
They opened up their season with a tight 23-21 win over the Buffalo Bills, and followed that up with another close victory over the New York Jets 13-10. Last week they let loose a bit more by taking down Tampa Bay 23-3 and they will believe they are in good shape to make it 4-0 against the Falcons today.
Tom Brady has had a tough time over the first three weeks, having his top two targets, tight end Rob Gronkowski, and wide receiver Danny Amendola out.
However, they have managed to win every game so far even without their usual explosive passing game, and that will be a concern for the rest of the NGL with both Gronkowski and Amendola close to a return. Once they are back who knows what the Patriots will be capable of.
Brady so far has gone 73 of 127 for 698 yards and five touchdowns. He has used Julian Edelman as his main target man, who has received 27 times for 201 yards and two touchdowns.
Meanwhile the Falcons have struggled until now and come into the game at 1-2 following last week's 23-37 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Things get more difficult for them this week, however, and it will take a phenomenal effort from them to avoid going 1-3 and taking down the Patriots.
