(Sports Network) - The faces may change but the winning continues for New England, something the Atlanta Falcons will try to stop on Sunday night. Adidas Stan Smith Dam . The primetime matchup will feature the two active quarterbacks with the best winning percentages as starters when the Patriots Tom Brady (139-39, .781) and Atlantas Matt Ryan (57-24, .704) meet. You can see all the action on TSN with coverage beginning with Football Night in America at 7pm et/4pm pt. Both clubs advanced to their respective conferences championship game a year ago, but the Falcons have stumbled out of the gate this time around. Despite drastic changes at the skill positions around Brady, though, the Pats are at a more comfortable 3-0 after a 23-3 win over Tampa Bay in Week 3. Brady, who has now thrown a touchdown pass in 51 consecutive games, connected with rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins on two TD passes against the Bucs. "We had good contributions from all three phases on offense, defense and special teams," said New England head coach Bill Belichick, who earned his 208th career win, one shy of tying Pittsburgh legend Chuck Noll for fifth place on the NFLs all-time list. "I thought our situational football was better: third down, red area, fourth down, kicking game. I thought we made some improvement this week; that was good to see." Brady completed 25-of-36 throws for 225 yards with one interception for the Patriots, who have opened a campaign at 3-0 for the first time since their undefeated regular season six years ago. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was inactive once again as his 2013 debut remains on hold, while slot receiver Danny Amendola missed a second straight game with a groin injury. Rookie wideout Aaron Dobson had 52 yards on seven receptions. "I feel good, were 3-0," Pats All-Pro nose tackle Vince Wilfork said. "You cant ask for anything better." Actually 4-0 would be better, but the Falcons will be in desperation mode after a last-second defeat in Miami (27-23) in Week 3. At home, Atlanta has won 12 of its past 13 regular-season contests. "Im looking forward to having a big week," Falcons rookie cornerback Desmond Trufant said. "I cant wait. I know were all looking forward to it. Weve got a bad taste in our mouth right now, so were just looking forward to getting back to grinding." Ryan had 231 yards and two touchdowns on 23-of-38 passing against the Dolphins for Atlanta, which dominated time of possession in the opening half, holding the ball for nearly 23 minutes. With Steven Jackson (hamstring) out, Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling shared the running back duties for Atlanta. Rodgers finished with a career- high 86 yards rushing, while Snelling had 53 yards on the ground and caught four passes for 58 yards. Atlantas Julio Jones led all receivers with 115 yards on nine catches for the Falcons, who lost despite a 377-285 edge in total offensive yards. "This was a game where I think we had a ton of opportunities to have chances to win the game, we just didnt make the plays when they were presented to us," Atlanta head coach Mike Smith said. The all-time series between the Pats and Falcons is even at six apiece but the Pats have won three straight and havent lost to Atlanta since the turn of the century. Adidas Superstar Röda . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Adidas Skor Rea . Manager Ryan Nelsen has confirmed Brazilian No. 1 Julio Cesar will be rested for Wednesdays first leg of the semifinal. That opens the door for Bendik, who started 33 games for Toronto last season.MADRID, Spain -- Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his Ballon dOr triumph by scoring from one of his trademark free kicks as Real Madrid beat Osasuna 2-0 on Wednesday to reach the Copa del Rey quarterfinals on Wednesday. Ronaldo smashed a swerving shot from 25 metres around the defensive wall and straight at goalie Andres Fernandez. The keeper tried to punch it out but ended up sending it down off the ground and between his legs into the net. Ronaldos 22nd-minute strike effectively sealed the contest, with Osasuna having lost the first leg 2-0. Osasuna forced Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas into a number of saves to close the half after having rarely threatened before Ronaldos opener. Angel Di Maria capped a quick counter in the 56th by sweeping home Jeses cross following a long run from the halfway line, securing a 4-0 aggregate victory at El Sadar Stadium. "The team looks better with every game," Jese said. Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao was shown a second yellow card in the 85th and Madrid finished with nine players after substitute Alvaro Morata came off minutes later with his left eye swollen shut following a collision earlier on. Ronaldos 30th goal in all competitions this season -- and 37th when counting those scored for Portugal -- further justified the forwards pick as world player of the year ahead of Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery. Ronaldo made way for Gareth Bale in the second half but the worlds most expensive player made little impact. Madrid will next play Espanyol, which eliminated second-tier Alcorcon 4-3 ffollowing a 4-2 home win on the night. Adidas Superstar 80s. Portuguese forward Pizzi curled home an 86th goal to ensure Espanyols progress at the expense of Alcorcon, which famously knocked Madrid out of the competition in 2009. A rematch with Madrid had looked on the cards after Alcorcon midfielder Javier Peral made it 2-2 in the 80th minute, with his side holding a 1-0 lead from the home leg. Victor Alvarez put Espanyol 3-2 ahead minutes later but the second division side was still through thanks to the away-goals rule -- until Pizzis curler from the left side. Also, Mikel Rico scored two goals to send Athletic Bilbao into the last eight with a 2-0 victory against last-place Real Betis. Bilbao, trailing 1-0 after the first leg in Seville, levelled the contest on aggregate in the 23rd minute when Rico produced a magnificent touch to gather Ander Iraiolas lofted pass into the area on the run and score with a left-footed shot. Athletic, a 22-time winner of the cup, secured its passage at its San Mames Stadium in the 67th minute when a poor clearance rolled to Rico and his angled shot secured a 2-1 victory over two legs. The Basque club will play defending champion Atletico Madrid next. Levante beat Rayo Vallecano 1-0 thanks to David Barrals first-half goal to advance by the same scoreline. Levante is most likely to play Barcelona, which leads Getafe 4-0 before Thursdays return leg. Real Sociedad is at Villarreal on Thursday after a scoreless first leg with the winner going on to play third-tier Racing Santander next week.
