Atlanta Falcons vs. Panthers: Odds, TV and radio, stream and more


The Atlanta Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers in a must-win game for the Falcons. Here’s everything you need to know.

Dan Quinn and his team absolutely have to win on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, with a loss almost certainly meaning the Atlanta Falcons will sit at home in January. Last week, the Falcons suffered a tough loss at the hands of the Buccaneers, who completed the series sweep in the process.

The Falcons are tied with the Bucs at 6-6, but Tampa Bay owns the head-to-head tiebreaker. Currently in possession of the wild-card spots is Seattle (7-5) and Minnesota (8-5). The Vikings lost to the Cardinals on Thursday night, meaning a Falcons win would move them within a game, although Minnesota holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Atlanta.

A Falcons win and Seahawks loss would tie the two teams up. Most importantly though, the Falcons must win. Here is everything you need to know ahead of the game with the Panthers.
