Ryan completed a 9-yard pass to Hooper to the Patriots yard-line, but on the next play, a holding penalty on Atlanta offensive lineman Jake Matthews pushed the team back ten yards. Then after an incompletion, Trey Flowers and Kyle Van Noy shared a sack on Ryan that forced the Falcons to punt on the first play of the fourth quarter.

Bosher's yard kick gave the Patriots the ball on their own 9-yard line with 3: After two incompletions, Brady picked up a first down with a yard pass to Chris Hogan.

Atlanta challenged the catch, but the referees confirmed the call on the field and Atlanta lost their final time out.
