Patriots vs. Falcons: Takeaways from New England's 30-23 Win over Atlanta

The New England Patriots survived a late rally by the Atlanta Falcons, with Aqib Talib breaking up a pass on fourth down to prevent the game-tying touchdown to seal the 30-23 win for the Pats.

After a back-and-forth first half, the Patriots dominated on both sides of the ball in the late third quarter, going up 30-13 with six minutes and 18 seconds left. But a mishandled onside kick by Zach Sudfeld, and a fumbled 4th-and-inches snap exchange later, and the Falcons were suddenly back in it.

With possibility two significant injuries, this win might come at a cost. Both Vince Wilfork and Aaron Dobson left the game and did not return.

Otherwise, it was a well-balanced win for the Pats, who might've proved their defense is legit.

Here's what else we learned in the Patriots' fourth win of the season.
