Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots Highlights

New England Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Nelson Agholor for the game's lone offensive touchdown. Two-time Super Bowl-winning linebacker Kyle Van Noy and the Patriots defense finished off the job.

Van Noy had two sacks and put the finishing touch on his standout defensive performance with a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown off Falcons backup quarterback Josh Rosen. The Patriots shut out the Atlanta Falcons 25-0 on Thursday night for the Patriots' fifth consecutive win and their fifth win on the road.

Patriots come out on top of the Falcons. They now have won five in a row.

The Atlanta Falcons, now 4-6, were shut out for the first time since a 38-0 defeat to the Carolina Panthers in 2015. The last time a team shut out the Falcons at home was Oct. 9, 1988.

Falcons All-Pro quarterback Matt Ryan was sacked four times and intercepted twice after posting the lowest passer rating of his career (21.4) in a 43-3 defeat by the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.
