The Patriots held on to beat the Falcons 30-23 and remaining unbeaten, after Aqib Talib denies a final touchdown attempt in Sunday’s game at the Georgia Dome.
The Falcons were making a phenomenal comeback late in the game, bringing a 30-13 Patriot lead to within one touchdown. With the Falcons down by seven points in the closing seconds of the game, Aqib Talib stopped the Falcons’ charge by breaking up a fourth-down pass from Matt Ryan in the end zone, sealing the 30-23 win for the Patriots.
Talib’s last minute defensive play got the team hyped, but not as hyped as Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
“Aqib’s played great for us all year, all the way back to the spring training camp,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “He’s stepped up in every game, played well, played the ball well, played against good receivers, and he’s tackled well, he’s covered well, he’s done a good job for us.”
