TNF Open Thread: Falcons @ Panthers

An NFC South showdown on TNF.

It’s a battle in the NFC South as the struggling Atlanta Falcons are taking on the CMC-less Carolina Panthers.

The head coaching change for the Falcons hasn’t exactly led to a change in their game outcomes the past few weeks, but they continue to churn out the yards, nonetheless. It’s not often you see a team lose BECAUSE they scored a late touchdown to take the lead.

The Panthers have been able to find more success than most probably expected them to without the presence of Christian McCaffrey in the backfield. Teddi Bridgewater has been above-average for the most part this season and he’s benefited greatly from the deep threat that is Robbie Anderson.

There’s a chance tonight’s contest is full of fireworks so be sure to kick back, grab a cocktail, and enjoy your Thursday night.
