Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons Preview and Predictions

BR StudiosFeatured Columnist IVMarch 29, 2017

This NFC South matchup has two teams going in entirely different directions. The Panthers defense is flawed in a big way, as evidenced by the thumping from the Giants. Cam Newton is trying to do way too much on his own and needs to get down to basics. As a result, the Panthers come in at 1-2 and face an undefeated Falcons team that is on fire.

Matt Ryan and company are torching opponents, and the Falcons defense is in much better hands with Mike Nolan. With the Saints winless in their first three games, Atlanta seems to be the cream of the crop in this division.

Will Cam Newton and the Panthers bounce back from their Thursday night drubbing by the Giants? Can the Falcons continue their roll? Is Matt Ryan an elite QB?

Let us know in the comments below.
