Patriots cruise by Falcons in SB rematch

(TSX / STATS) -- FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots made sure the Super Bowl rematch turned out to be a dud.

"I think (head coach) Bill (Belichick) said it best this week -- he said it was about time that we played complementary football for four quarters," defensive captain Devin McCourty said after the Patriots dominated the Atlanta Falcons en route to a 23-7, fog-shrouded Sunday night victory.

Just as they did in the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, the Patriots manhandled the Falcons -- and the final score really wasn't an indication of the game itself.
