Looking ahead to Week 4 Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons
After being demolished in Thursday night’s matchup in prime time against the defending Champion NY Giants, the Carolina Panthers are in dire need of a win. They need this win to get the horrible taste of a humiliating defeat out of their mouth.
The loss on Thursday saw a few things like:
- The Panthers defense allowing the Giants to score the first 20 points of the game
- Cam Newton throw three interceptions and have a 40.6 QB rating
- The Panthers defense give up 400+ yards of offense
- Carolina only managing a time of possession of 23 minutes
Looking ahead to Atlanta next weekend the Panthers have their hands very full. Matt Ryan, Julio Jone, Roddy White and the rest of the Falcon offense has been clicking on all cylinders this season. If the Panthers are unable pressure Ryan and if they give him the time that he needs to find any of those dangerous receivers then Sunday night against the falcons will be even uglier than week 3 against the Giants. Taking a look at the betting odds for the Panthers against the Falcons, the Panthers are a two and a half point underdog. To be honest after last week’s lackadaisical performance I’m very surprised that it isn’t more than that.
So what do you think, Do Cam Newton and the Panthers have a chance to turn ut around against the Falcons and get back into the win column?
