A wild finish left the Patriots at 4-0 with a 30-23 win over the Falcons Sunday night in Atlanta.
There were a number of plays that changed the course of this one from botched onside kicks, fumbled snaps, faulty replay equipment and questionable coaching calls.
The three plays of the game were:
1. LeGarrette Blount took 47-yard run to the house that turned a three point game into a 20-10 lead.
2. Kenbrell Thompkins had quite a night with 6 catches for 127 yards. He picked up the first down on third-and-19 to keep a fourth quarter drive alive and later made a circus catch in the end zone put the Pats up 27-13 with 10 minutes to go.
3. Aqib Talib, who had a key interception in the fourth quarter, broke up Matt Ryan's fourth down pass with :50 seconds left to ice it.
