3 Carolina Panthers the Atlanta Falcons must slow down in week 8
By Nick Halden
2. D.J. Moore
Moore finally looked like the star receiver he is on Sunday catching a touchdown and making two clutch catches to help set up Carolina scores. P.J. Walker isn’t a great quarterback, however, when he can lean on the run game and D.J. Moore as he did on Sunday against the Bucs this Carolina team can move the ball against anyone. The path for Atlanta in this game is very simple, load the box and force the Panthers to put the ball in the air while putting your best coverage consistently on Moore.
With so many injuries in the secondary, it remains unclear who Atlanta will have in the starting lineup on Sunday. However, Atlanta must focus on taking away D.J. Moore and force Walker to make tight-window throws to his other targets. Walker has a history of having a great game and following it up with a mistake-filled one. Atlanta is going to have chances at takeaways in this game the question will be can they take advantage?
