The Carolina Panthers (1-2) will visit the NFC South division-leading Atlanta Falcons (3-0) on Sunday following a 10-day hangover from their most recent game, a 36-7 loss to the New York Giants (2-1) last Thursday night, and they will do so with revenge on their minds and a chip on their collective shoulder the size of Stone Mountain.

The game will be a homecoming for Georgia natives Cam Newton, Mike Tolbert, Thomas Davis and Charles Johnson, and all four players will factor heavily into the outcome of the Panthers' third NFC South divisional game in four weeks.

The Panthers' season has gotten off to a rocky start marked by uneven performances in their first three games while the Falcons have quickly established themselves as one of the top teams in the NFL and the team to beat in the NFC South.

The Falcons came from behind in the fourth quarter twice against the Panthers last season, and they have won six of their last seven meetings with Carolina, including the past four in a row.

Atlanta leads the series with an all-time record of 22-12-0 against the Panthers.

Here is a look at the Carolina Panthers' keys to their Week 4 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.
