Patriots expect tough time with Falcons runners

(Continued)

“Now Julio kind of took the reins as the No. 1 receiver. Don’t get me wrong. Roddy White is still in there and he still does his part. Julio’s kind of their go-to guy right now.”

So even without Jackson, the Falcons have a strong, balanced offense.

“I don’t care who they put back there,” Wilfork said. “When I think about Atlanta I always think about the running game. When you’re able to go in a game and run the ball and (use) play action passes, screens, go down field, have a tight end who can catch that you have to defend, it’s very tough for a defense.”
