Hey Falcoholics! On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons took on the Carolina Panthers. The Falcons extended their win-streak to two games, defeating the Panthers 29-3. If you missed the incredible game, or just want to review the tweets from it, look no further. Falcons fans on Twitter have you covered, and without further ado, let’s begin.

The Falcons would start the game off, after winning the coin toss.

The Falcons opened with an eight play drive which resulted in a 38-yard field goal by kicker Younghoe Koo. 3-0.

The Panthers would then get their first possession of the game. It didn’t go well for them, as with the help of some Takk McKinely pressure, De’Vondre Campbell made a great interception placing the Falcons in Carolina territory.

Even though they were placed in scoring territory, the Falcons wouldn’t take advantage. Even though he made the first attempt, the second 38-yarder was missed by Youngwoe Koo.

That’s okay though, because the Falcons’ defense was on the scene in Charlotte. Vic Beasley sacked Panthers’ quarterback Kyle Allen forcing a punt.

The Falcons offense was struggling early.

Following a punt, and another Takk sack, the Panthers would again punt to the Falcons. Former Panthers’ return man Kenjon Barner likely had this game circled, as he took the punt 78-yard to the house extending the Falcons’ lead to 10-0.

In the second quarter, the Panthers offense was moving until they were stopped on third down, unfortunately they went for it and converted the 4th & 2.

Thankfully as mentioned above, the Falcons’ defense was here to play. Demond Trufant intercepted a poorly thrown ball in the end zone, making his 3rd of the season.

Prior to halftime, the Ricardo Allen would have an interception and rookie running back Qadree Ollison would record his first career touchdown. 20-0.

On the Panthers first drive to start the third quarter, they went for it on 4th & 5 and of course were stopped by the elite Falcons’ defense.

A Falcons’ ten play drive was capped off with a 6-yard touchdown reception by Calvin Ridley, who stepped up big in Austin Hooper’s absence. 26-0.

The two teams would go back and forth until the Panthers finally put some points on the board via a 31-yard field goal by kicker Joey Slye. 26-3.

In the fourth quarter, Younghoe Koo would knock down his third field goal on the day, this time a 29-yarder. 29-3.

A kneel in the fourth quarter by Matt Schaub would end the game. Falcons win 29-3.

Well that does it, folks. The Falcons came in and played another tremendous game, especially on defense. Next week our 3-7 Falcons host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Atlanta.
