Cam Newton and the Panthers will play hard, as they will be looking to pull off an upset. The Panthers are trying to do anything to make this season appear to be anything other than a complete failure.
When the teams met in Week 4, the Falcons were able to come away with a tough-fought 30-28 victory. On that day, the Panthers were the better team but were unable to close out the Falcons on the road.
Matt Ryan and Roddy White were the Falcons' heros, as that duo connected eight times for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Panthers' fans had no choice but to flip off their television sets while shaking their head in disbelief after Matt Bryant's game-winning field goal sailed through the uprights.
While the loss was heartbreaking for the Panthers, their performance proved that they could beat one of the NFC's elite teams.
Here are the keys to this rematch between these two NFC South rivals.
