How does an Atlanta Falcons fan site put a season in which the Panthers make the Super Bowl as one of the five best games against the Panthers? That’s easy. The Falcons were the ones in the Panthers 15-1 regular season.
The Falcons kept the Panthers from being just the third team in NFL history from going unbeaten during the regular season.
2015 was a weird season for Atlanta. That was Dan Quinn’s first season as head coach and the birds started out 5-0. Everyone in Atlanta was feeling great and then the bottom dropped as the Falcons would finish the season 3-8.
Carolina would win the first game against Atlanta that season 38-0. Cam Newton threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns. The Panthers were nothing special on offense that day, the Falcons just could not stop them and the Falcons offense would turn the ball three times; one interception and two fumbles.
However, two weeks later the 14-0 Panthers would come to the Georgia Dome where the Falcons would end the undefeated dream that MVP Cam Newton was thinking about as the Falcons held the Panthers to just 13 points and won the game 20-13.
