The Atlanta Falcons offense is hurting and hurting bad after dropping their sixth consecutive game on the season. The Falcons were shutout for the first time since 2004 and have quickly gone from one of the league’s best offenses to one of the worst.

The Falcon’ offense was unable to gain any momentum throughout the game due to the Panthers’ offense scoring points with reckless abandon. The Falcons averaged 32.5 points per game through their first five games of the year and since are averaging 16.7 with a minus 7 turnover differential.
