I have no idea what to expect today.
If the Falcons fall back to earth against the Panthers, it will tell us that they just got good/lucky against the Saints, aka at exactly the right moment. If they win, though, it’ll be something wilder and ultimately more frustrating, because it will mean they really are capable of beating good-to-great teams on the road, but for whatever reason could not get themselves to do it during their epic six game losing streak.
Either way, we’ll be here and watching. Join us and use this as your open thread.
Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers, Week 11
When: Sunday, November 17, 1 p.m. EST
Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, North Carolina
Announcers: Dick Stockton, Mark Schlereth, Jennifer Hale
Radio: 92.9 The Game; XM 228
Key Questions: Can the Falcons build on their impressive performance against the Saints and beat the strongly disliked Panthers on the road? Who is going to take Devonta Freeman and Austin Hooper’s target share? Can the defense hold Christian McCaffrey in check?
Prediction: Falcons win, 27-21
