Good news for Falcons fans before tonight's game. It's being reported across radio waves and the internet this morning that TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Danny Amendola are not playing for the New England Patriots tonight against the Falcons. Heck, they didn't even make the trip down south.
This is good news for a Falcons team that has a lot of issues covering, well, anyone lately. But tight ends seem to be the position that has the potential to get the most open, as the Falcons linebackers have struggled since late last season to put the clamps down on tight ends.
This will definitely help a young secondary, and should further hinder Tom Brady who already is putting up one of the worst years of his prestigious career when it comes to pass completion percentage.
This year, Brady has posted only a 57.5% completion percentage, which is well below what he normally posts, which is usually in the 63-68 range. Brady has had a tough time adjusting to his new receiving corps., so not getting back old targets Gronkowski and Amendola can only help the Falcons' young secondary.
