Falcons vs. Panthers: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Atlanta

The Atlanta Falcons (11-3) lost 30-20 to the Carolina Panthers (4-9) at Bank of America Stadium Sunday in a game that wasn't as close as the score indicated.

Cam Newton took control of the game early, leading the Panthers to an 16-0 lead at the half that could've been much wider had Carolina been able to score touchdowns instead of field goals in the redzone.

The Panthers dominance continued in the third quarter, when they extended their lead to 23-0 on a 72-yard Newton touchdown run.

The Falcons narrowed it to 23-13 with two quick touchdowns of their own. But the Panthers put the game away for good with a 53-yard DeAngelo Williams touchdown on a screen pass to make it 30-13.

A Michael Turner touchdown run with seconds left in the game made it 30-20, but that's as close as the Falcons would get.

Here are the Falcons' final game grades.
