Carolina has already surpassed their regular season loss total from last year and will look to rebound here against the Falcons on Sunday afternoon.
Atlanta took it to the Saints defense on Monday Night Football and will look to make it 3 straight wins here.
Carolina is unfamiliar territory.
The Panthers find themselves with a pair of losses as Cam Newton was completely bottled up on Sunday against the Vikings. The loss put an end to the Panthers 14 game winning streak at home.
Carolina’s 1-2 start was quite unexpected as they entered the season a favorite not just to win the division with ease, but were also a top favorite for the Superbowl.
For the Panthers to find success, they’ll need to see Newton hook up with Kelvin Benjamin more. The WR had a solid first week, but last week was held without a catch.
Benjamin figures to get a lot of targets this week as the Atlanta secondary has been a mess this season.
RB Fozzy Whittaker will also play a giant role here. With Jonathan Stewart still sidelined, Whittaker will be asked to get production as it will open up the pass game for Newton.
The Falcons had an impressive showing on Monday Night Football as they completely picked apart the New Orleans Saints.
Atlanta put up a 45 spot, as QB Matt Ryan was nearly flawless.
Ryan finished with 240 yards and added a pair of touchdowns as he had a lot of help from the running game as well.
Look for them to use the same strategy here as they know they need the run game to help Ryan out. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman both got a lot of touches and should expect the same here.
Freeman will look to repeat his 152 yard rushing game while Coleman will try to repeat his pair of touchdowns.
Like Kelvin Benjamin, look for WR Julio Jones to get a lot of targets here. Jones was held down despite the pass game being so successful.
He’ll have a much bigger role here as the Panthers defense is fair more talented than the Saints which will make life a lot tougher on Ryan and company.
