The New England Patriots just recently acquired linebacker Prescott Burgress from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week for a seventh-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Burgess has two prior years of experience under his belt, and will be expected to come in and contribute immediately for New England’s thin backfield. The Patriots only played two linebackers against the Jets last Sunday (Gary Guyton and Adalius Thomas).
Week 3’s game against the Atlanta Falcons is scheduled for Sunday, September 27th at 1:00 pm. This will be the first time since 2005 and the 12th time ever that Atlanta and New England have matched up. After a heartbreaking loss in New York, Tom Brady will look to rally his squad back as he has many times before. Bill Belichick is 2-0 against the Falcons as Patriots head coach.
