Best Of Social Media: Week 11 Patriots vs FalconsDale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots traveled to Atlanta to take on the Falcons on Thursday looking to extend their winning streak to five and remain perfect on the road in 2021.

Relieve all the best moments by checking out the social media postings shared before, during, and after the game by both the team and media below.

In the first quarter, the Patriots jumped out to a 3-0 lead thanks to the running back tandem of Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson.

 

Looking for some separation on the scoreboard, the Patriots offense finally found the end zone when Mac Jones threw a 19-yard touchdown reception to Nelson Agholor.

While the first half overall was a bit of a struggle for the Mac and the offense, the Patriots defense overpowered the Falcons offensive line and quarterback Matt Ryan.

A Nick Folk field goal just before halftime gave the Patriots a 13-0 heading into the locker room.

 

In the second half, it remained more of the same for the Falcons as the Patriots defense prevented any ball movement (including the stop below), but neither team could find points in the third quarter.

At the start of the fourth, the Falcons appeared to be in a position to make it a game after crossing midfield, but once again the Patriots defense had other ideas.

The McCourty interception set up a Nick Folk 53 yard field goal to extend the Patriots lead to 16.

Still leading by 16 with five minutes to go in the game, cornerback J.C. “Mr. Int” Jackson joined in on the turnover party.

A Nick Folk 33 yard field goal pushed the Patriots lead to 19.

With the clock winding down, linebacker Kyle Van Noy put a stamp on the Patriots seventh win with a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown.

The defense would preserve the Patriots 25-0 shutout victory, the 13th such a win under head coach Bill Belichick.

Following the Buffalo Bills loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, the Patriots found themselves in first place in the AFC East for the first time since the 2019 season.
