Three least winnable games for the Atlanta Falcons

4 of 4

The Carolina Panthers are 5-3 and fighting for a spot in the playoffs which means they won’t take it easy against the Falcons. Like the Saints, the Panthers are one of the Atlanta Falcons big-time rivals and just because Cam Newton won’t be playing doesn’t mean this will be a walk in the park.

Kyle Allen is not Cam, but he’s been playing well enough to keep this team afloat. He has weapons on offense like the dependable Greg Olsen, DJ Moore, and Curtis Samuel who both can take the top off a defense and could put up some gaudy numbers against this Falcons secondary, but those three guys are the least of their worries.

Christian McCaffrey is playing like a man possessed. McCaffrey can catch the ball out the backfield, run in between the tackles or take it to the outside and every chance he touches the ball, there’s a chance six points could hit the scoreboard.

The Panthers defense leads in NFL in sacks which doesn’t bode well for a struggling offensive line like the one the Atlanta Falcons currently have. Dealing with the likes of Gerald McCoy, Luke Kueckly, and rookie sensation Brian Burns will be a tall task for this Falcons crew.
