The New England Patriots offense has not been up to par with the offenses of previous years. Currently, the team ranks 22nd in points per game and 17th in yards per game. They could certainly use a couple of weapons to help Tom Brady and the passing attack. However, they may have to continue to bide their time until they can get those weapons back.
As Mike Petraglia of WEEI reports, Rob Gronkowski is not expected to play Sunday. The report first came from ESPN's John Clayton earlier today. Gronkowski has continued to practice ever since not being placed on the PUP list as he heals from forearm and back surgery.
There was optimism that he would play this week because he was listed as questionable last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Unfortauntely, it appears that Tom Brady will be without one of his favorite targets once again.
The Patriots could use the help on offense, especially with the offensive firepower on Atlanta's offense. The Falcon's offense should give the Patriots defense their first real challenge of the season as the Patriots have faced two rookie quarterbacks and a struggling Josh Freeman.
