With the Atlanta Falcons taking down the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 in Atlanta, here are three studs and duds for the Falcons from the victory.
The Atlanta Falcons came into Week 14 on Sunday afternoon looking to snap a multi-game losing streak while trying to improve their rough home record up to this point in the 2019 regular season. The journey to trying to accomplish that feat came while welcoming fellow NFC South opponent the Carolina Panthers to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday.
While hosting their fifth straight game against a divisional opponent, the Falcons cruised to their second win at home this year, taking down the Carolina Panthers, 40-20, on their home field.
Atlanta kicked off the contest getting off to a nice start at home in front of its home fans, holding a 3-0 lead after one quarter and eventually expanding that to a 13-10 lead going into halftime. In the second half, the Falcons continued to pour it on the Panthers while continuing to stretch their lead in front of their home fans.
Atlanta managed to outscore Carolina 17-0 in the third quarter to put the game out of reach, ending up with a 27-10 advantage over the course of the final two quarters.
With the win, the Falcons improved to 4-9 overall on the season while seeing their two-game losing streak come to a close. They also grabbed their second home victory of the 2019 campaign, improving to 2-5 at home up to this point in the year.
Atlanta, which still remains at the bottom of the NFC South standings behind the Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, will return to action in Week 15 of the regular season next weekend when it hits the road to face a tough San Francisco 49ers squad on Sunday evening in San Francisco.
