NFL: Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons are bad. The Carolina Panthers are bad. This Sunday, bad takes on bad in a game that few people want to watch and probably even less want to play in. That doesn’t mean we can’t ruminate about the implications of this game for both teams.

We do just that on this week’s Falcoholic Podcast, as Jeanna and DW are joined by Brian Beversluis from Cat Scratch Reader - and the Keep Sounding SB Nation podcast - to talk about how both teams got to this point.

Will the Panthers actually look better with Cam Newton on the sidelines? How important is Deion Jones to this defense? How big of a loss is losing Shaq Thompson for the remaining two games? Can the Falcons repeat their performance against the Cardinals? We answer these questions and more.
