This seems like an easy victory for the Falcons who are on an absolute roll. The Panthers, on the other hand, have struggled so far this year to just one win. However, this game means a whole lot to the Panthers. They need this victory to keep their season afloat. A 1-3 start compared to a 4-0 start for Atlanta would be a tremendous uphill climb for a any team. You have to expect Carolina to be taking this game extremely seriously.
The Panthers are also coming off 10 days rest which allowed some of their players to get healthy. The key player is Jonathan Stewart, who missed last week. The offense runs much more smoothly with their big back so his presence is crucial for Carolina. Atlanta has the advantage, but they can’t look past the Panthers, or this could prove to be a trap game.
