  • Carolina Panthers: Bold Predictions for Week 9 against Falcons

Carolina drafted Christian McCaffery early in the draft and have yet to get him going but perhaps this is Ron Rivera's shift to a run first approach in an attempt to keep Cam Newton off of his back, and if that is the case then moving on from Benjamin and getting something in return may not be such a insane decision after all. Carolina would take a 14-10 lead into the half. Carolina ran for 201 yards, including a career-high 66 and a touchdown from rookie Christian McCaffrey.

Devin Funchess had 86 receptions for 5 yards in his first game as Carolina's No. 1 receiver after the team traded Kelvin Benjamin earlier in the week.

The Carolina Panthers will be looking to end two losing streaks on Sunday with two straight losses at Bank of America and three straight losses to the Atlanta Falcons, a streak dating back to 2015.

McCaffrey scored his first rushing touchdown of his career on a pitch from Newton to cut Atlanta's lead to 10-7.


Leading the way for the Panthers - as he has several times this season - was Newton. The athletic Newton dived over the goal line and dunked the ball on cornerback Desmond Trufant for the score.

Carolina's 36-year-old safety may have made the biggest play of the game when he intercepted Matt Ryan and returned the ball 40 yards late in the second quarter.

From there, Atlanta struggled to stay in the game, while Carolina pushed the Falcons around for most of the third quarter. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman were held to a combined 51 yards on 16 carries. Funchess ended up with five catches for 86 yards, including a 33-yarder. Atlanta hasn't had the greatest season and were in danger of missing out on the playoffa altogether at one point but they have turned things around and are starting to look like the reigning NFC champions and should be in the driver's seat when it comes to taking top spot in the division.

Carolina finally found its legs late in the second quarter.
