The Atlanta Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers in Week 14. We spoke with Cat Crave to find out what it will take to defeat the Panthers.

The Atlanta Falcons meet the Carolina Panthers for the first of two meetings in the space of three weeks, with the Falcons looking to keep their season alive and give the Panthers their first loss of the season.

I spoke with Chris Schafer, editor of Cat Crave, which is our FanSided affiliate site that covers the Carolina Panthers. It’s great to be able to get a Panthers perspective on Sunday’s game. Here’s the five questions I asked him.

In your opinion, will the Panthers go 16-0?

CS: As much as I want to say yes that the Panthers will go 16-0, I just do not see it happening. I think there are two possible games where the unbeaten streak comes to an end. One of the games versus the Falcons, or the Giants game.

If one of the Falcons’ games, it will be because it is just a rivalry, where each team really hates each other and the Falcons will be gunning for the Panthers. The Giants game could be the other because it is New York, close to Christmas, in the cold, and there could be snow on the ground. Spells a recipe for disaster.
