Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season will kick off with a matchup featuring the New England Patriots (6-4) on the road against the Atlanta Falcons (4-5) on Thursday Night Football.

The Patriots lead the all-time series between these teams, 8-6, and have won the past five in a row. They last faced off in Oct. 2017 in New England, with the Falcons suffering a 23-7 road loss, and the last time they played each other in Atlanta was back in 2013, which was a slightly closer loss for the home team, 30-23.

There are a some former Eagles on both sidelines for this game: OG Josh Andrews for the Falcons — DE Steven Means was placed on IR last week after suffering a knee injury during a fumble recovery in Week 9 —, and WR Nelson Agholor and SAF Jalen Mills for the Patriots.
