We’re here! Kickoff should be happening very soon, and then we’ll get to see if the Falcons are up to the task of beating the Carolina Panthers and earning their fifth win of the season.

No further preamble necessary, given that you all know the stakes and probably have already settled into the couch with a beverage and your nerves a-janglin’. Let’s do this, and go Falcons!

Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers Week 9
