It feels as if these two teams just played, and, well, they did.
Just two weeks ago, in fact.
The game was exciting and went into overtime, but now we have them meeting on a short week in Carolina.
How does this one play out? Let’s check it out.

The Panthers have named P.J. Walker the starter this week after benching him in favor of Baker Mayfield at halftime against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Panthers couldn’t score, and they hope to rebound here.
The Falcons lost in the waning seconds of the game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but their offense has been able to get some things done.
The Falcons have a decent pass rush, but they also have cornerback Darren Hall that should match up well against both D.J. Moore and Terrace Marshall.
Cordarrelle Patterson is back in the lineup for the Falcons. The game plans will likely be a bit more simplistic and run-focused on a short week where the Falcons shine. They run the ball on over 53% of their offensive plays.

Both teams have receiving options, but at the core of it, these are two offenses that want to run the ball.
As mentioned, the Falcons run the ball on 53.2% of their plays, and while the Panthers are just under 40%, they’ve wanted to run more since the Christian McCaffrey trade.
Short weeks usually mean simpler game plans, and this game will be won in the trenches running the ball.
It doesn’t seem likely that this game will be a repeat of 70+ total points here. Running the ball will be the focus.
