Sunday’s prime time showdown between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots promises to be a thriller.Patriots quarterback Tom Brady discussed playing in the Georgia Dome and his case of  nickname envy with the team’s website. When asked why he does not have a cool secondary moniker like Matty Ice, Brady shared his thoughts. “I don’t know,” Brady pondered. Do I…I don’t have any nicknames? That should be the thing. That’s a good story for this week too. TB12 is pretty good, I like that.  Not as good as Matty Ice? I know, Matty Ice is pretty sweet.” Brady went on to discuss how the Patriots offense has recently grown and how that momentum will carry over into Sunday night’s challenge. “We made a little bit of progress and we were a bit more consistent [against Tampa Bay],” Brady said. “We still left some points on the board. We had a good week of practice and I think it showed. Hopefully this is a good week of practice and it shows. It’s a good challenge for us. It’s a good team and it’s a really challenging environment to play in because the fans are behind them, it’s loud, it’s a dome, it’s Sunday night. It will be great. Coach always says, ‘If you love football, then Sunday night at 8:30 in Atlanta will be the place to be.’ I totally agree. It will be fun. ” Brady compared the noise level in Buffalo to what he anticipates they will face in Atlanta. ” It was pretty loud up there too,  but Atlanta is probably – those domes get pretty loud because you know, there’s just no place for that sound to go. If they get going, it gets loud. We’ve played there a few times so I think we have a little bit of understanding of what it’s about. They’re a good offensive football team so there are usually a lot of reasons for them to be excited. Their skill players and the way Matt [Ryan] plays, it’s going to test us all the way around in all three phases so hopefully we’re ready for it. Brady is poised for a brawl in the Bible Belt.
