SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU and current New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy sealed a victory for his team with a late pick-six of the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons hosted the Patriots on Thursday, November 18.

With 1:22 remaining in the fourth quarter, the former BYU star intercepted Falcons backup quarterback Josh Rosen and returned the ball 35 yards for a touchdown.

Van Noy’s pick-six gave New England a 25-0 lead.

It was the former Cougar standout’s fourth career touchdown.

Atlanta threw another interception on its next possession and the Patriots kneeled out the game clock.

It was New England’s fifth consecutive win.

Van Noy finished with a team-high eight total tackles, five solo tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss, one pass breakup, two quarterback hits, one interception, and a touchdown.

With the win, Van Noy and the Patriots improved to a 7-4 record this season.

New England’s next game is against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, November 28 at 11 a.m. (MDT) on CBS.
