Falcons at Panthers: Highlights, score and recap

The Panthers held RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman to 76 yards on 21 carries in Week 4, and they should have similar struggles Saturday. A win at home over Atlanta is the Panthers' only path to the NFC Playoffs.

A Tampa Bay loss or tie later in the day at New Orleans would give the Falcons (10-5) the crown, or otherwise they meet the Buccaneers next weekend at home. Jones caught 12 passes for 300 yards in a 48-33 victory over the Carolina Panthers on October 2.

If Tampa Bay wins, the Falcons can still clinch the division if the Lions lose to the Cowboys on Monday Night. The Panthers' quarterback completed 18-of-43 passes for 198 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Despite missing the two contests, Jones still leads the National Football League with 1,253 receiving yards. But this doesn't look like an easy spot for them as the Panthers have been able to manufacture motivation the last two weeks despite minuscule playoff chances. Keanu Neal, the team's first round pick in 2016, left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury. Newton finishes the half with 58 passing yards and a couple of interceptions.

Ryan connected on a 26-yard touchdown pass to tight end Joshua Perkins to cap the game's first drive.

Olsen, who is expected to play despite a shoulder injury that has kept him out of practice this week, said he would take great pride in breaking the mark because it speaks to his durability and consistency.

Cam Newton, for one, thinks resting Kuechly is a good idea. Tight end Austin Hooper (knee) and linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (concussion) will not play. But he also got a personal foul for taking a swing at a Falcons player that could have gotten him ejected. The chance to hamper a fierce rival's playoff hopes, plus Newton's increased production of late, should lead to the NFC South going down to Week 17.

On Carolina's next possession, Newton came up a yard short on a third-down scramble, forcing the Panthers to punt. In the past four home meetings, has 1,093 pass yards (273.3 per game) and 10 TDs (8 pass, 2 rush).
