The Falcons have been missing significant personnel at the skill positions, and Matt Ryan has been getting little protection from his offensive line. Atlanta’s defense has been up to the challenge and should be able to pressure Cam Newton in this game.
Newton had a few strong performances in his first two games back with the Panthers, but was very poor in Week 13 against the Dolphins. The Panthers need Newton to be more consistent, although they’re likely headed in a new direction at quarterback once the season is over.
