The Carolina Panthers head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Week 8 NFL action. The Panthers are coming off an embarrassing 25-3 loss to the New York Giants, while the Falcons got a last-second field goal to take out the Miami Dolphins 30-28. NFL betting lines for this game have opened with the Falcons as the-3 favorite, with the point total opening at 47
The Panthers benched quarterback Sam Darnold after throwing his seventh interception in his last four games. The young quarterback now has eight interceptions to just seven touchdown passes. Even worse, the offense converted just two of their 15 third-down conversion attempts and Carolina has now lost four straight.
The offense’s inability to move the ball puts a ton of pressure on the defense and they could not absorb the blows at MetLife. The Panthers gave up 322 yards and 25 points to an offense averaging 18 points per game. The 3-4 Panthers will look to get out of last place in the NFC South and find the win column when they head to Atlanta.
The Falcons overcame a blown lead and answered with a last-second 36-yard field goal to seal a victory over Miami. But the story of the game was the connection from Ryan to rookie tight end Kyle Pitts. They hooked up seven times for 163 yards while Ryan has finished with two-plus touchdowns in five straight games.
Atlanta’s defense survived a tough game, blowing the lead late in the fourth quarter, but secured two key interceptions that led to the win. The defense gave up another four touchdown passs to Tua Tagovailoa. The Falcons look to improve their 29.3 points allowed per game when they face a struggling Carolina offense.
