This is Atlanta’s second and final primetime game for the 2020 season, which is a mercy in a season as bad as this one. We’ll all be up late tonight to watch the Falcons hopefully at least play a competitive game, and we’ll find out whether Atlanta’s 1-7 or 2-6 when the dust settles.

As always, the information you need to watch tonight is below, and let’s head into this one with zero expectations and a healthy reserve of your preferred drink of choice. Go Falcons!

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers, Week 8

When: Thursday, October 29, 8:20 p.m. EST

Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, North Carolina

Channel: FOX

Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Erin Andrews

Streaming: FOXSportsGo

Radio: 92.9 The Game

Key Questions: There’s just one: Has this team learned anything since their last loss against Carolina, or is this the same team minus one inspiring win against Minnesota?

Prediction: After an all-too-familiar loss against the Lions in the final seconds of their Week 7 game, I’m back to smartly betting against the Falcons. Atlanta 24 - Carolina 27
