Super Mismatch: Patriots continue mastery of Falcons 23-7

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) To Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, this was simply an extension of last February's Super Bowl.

For the Atlanta Falcons, it was another dose of football pain.

By the end of New England's clinical 23-7 romp through the fog Sunday night, it was clear that the Patriots have straightened out what ailed them earlier this season. And that the Falcons are a shadow of the team that built a 25-point third-quarter lead in that championship game, only to fall apart and lose the first overtime contest in Super Bowl history.
