Falcons vs Panthers

8:20 PM EST
Rotation #101
Falcons +1.5 over Panthers (win)
Falcons/Panthers Over 52 (loss)

The Falcons fired Dan Quinn and got a monster road win in Minnesota.  This team has talent on the offensive side of the ball especially with Julio Jones in the lineup.  The very next week they blew another game in which they had a 99% probability of winning the game for the 3rd time this year.  This is not a bad team, they are just unfocused on defense.  The Panthers are doing great things this year with Teddy Bridgewater at QB, but I do think it’s going to take another year with this young coaching staff to put it all together.  In the first meeting this year both of the running games for each team played well.  The Falcons didn’t have Julio Jones so in the rematch should be good for a ton of points.  The wind in the area is slowing down as we approach kickoff.  The Panthers and Falcons both have major flaws on the defensive side of the ball.  The Falcons look out of position and the Panthers just have a ton of injuries on top of not being that experienced.  I think Atlanta regroups and gets the win tonight.  Julio Jones makes all the skilled players around him that much better because of the focus covering Jones.  The Panthers don’t really have anyone who can cover him and if you double team him you then are literally putting guys on Gage and Ridley who just will get scorched.  Take the Falcons and the Over.
