Jim Rogash/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will bring a 3-0 record to the Georgia Dome on Sunday against the Falcons.

The Patriots have found ways to survive the last three games and still would like to get things going on offense.

“I think throwing an interception right to a strong safety last week doesn’t help, especially (when) two plays before I had a wide-open guy,” Brady said, who is 3-0 in his career against the Falcons. “I think plays like that are more the problem. I have to do a good job finding the open guys, guys that are running free and then hit them. That will help our red-zone offense more than anything.”

Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork knows that the team is up for a big challenge with an explosive Falcons offense.

“I feel good. 3-0. You can’t ask for anything better,” Wilfork said. “We know our offense, sooner or later, they’re going to start clicking.”

The Falcons are coming off a 27-23 loss to the Dolphins and will try to improve to 2-2.

“We did not play very good situational football. We’re talking about red zone, two minute and third downs,” Atlanta head coach Mike Smith said. “We gave up 10 points in two-minute situations — a field goal at the end of the half, and seven points at the end of the game.”
