Falcons Injury Report: Atlanta is relatively healthy ahead of Super Bowl 51, although two key players aren't going to be 100-percent for the game. Receiver Julio Jones continues to be limited by a toe injury, although he dealt with the same ailment in the NFC Championship Game and torched the Packers for 180 yards and two touchdowns on nine catches. Alex Mack is also limited due to a fibula injury suffered in Atlanta's win over Green Bay. If he can't go, that's a massive blow to the Falcons' chances of upsetting the Patriots on Sunday.  

The Patriots are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against the Falcons but the underdog has cashed inf our of the last five meetings between these two teams. New England is 5-1 against the spread in its last six playoff games but is just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five Super Bowl trips, while Atlanta is 5-1 against the number in its last six games overall but is just 2-6 ATS in its last eight playoff games.
