Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Scott CarasikContributor IIFebruary 26, 2016

Atlanta Falcons 20, Carolina Panthers 30 — Final

The Atlanta Falcons lost just their second game today to the Carolina Panthers. The Falcons inability to convert on third downs killed them again today as their 2-for-8—0-for-4 in the first half—gave the Panthers a time of possession victory.

The game just went the Panthers way all day. The Falcons were unable to get anything going and the Panthers were able to drain the Falcons defense by grinding out three long scoring drives in the first half.

Atlanta is now 11-2 and still in the lead for the NFC home field advantage. Carolina is just 4-9 and is still sitting at home for the playoffs.
