The Falcons are 3-3 and about to play the Carolina Darnolds on Halloween. It sure feels surprisingly good. Let’s catch up on the latest and spookiest news.

A.J. Terrell returns from the dead!

Or a neck injury/concussion as the Falcons are apparently unsure what is going on. The good news is he got in a limited practice on Wednesday, making us optimistic he can square off against DJ Moore on Sunday. Obviously, the defense looks much better with Terrell locking down the opposing team’s top wideout.

Deion Jones wins first place in the Monster Mash competition

The linebacker is having a bit of a bounce back season, culminating in his third Defensive Player of the Week win. Jones was everywhere against Miami after a season or two of being the Invisible Man. He sure looks like a good fit with Dean Pees.

The Saints are the living dead

We look around the NFC South and still have no idea what the Saints are this season. They seem pretty bad but have strung together a few unlikely and weird wins. Tampa looks to be running away with the division, leaving a mess at the bottom with the Falcons in contention.

Has Sam Darnold been body snatched?

Let’s be honest. None of us know much of anything about the Panthers. Christian McCaffrey is hurt. Sam Darnold was good but now he’s bad. We take a deeper dive into whatever Carolina is to prep ahead of Sunday’s game.

Slip into a time warp of the past

The Falcons and Panthers have a long, storied history culminating from when a city based around a Bank of America branch needed a better way to advertise Bojangles to unsuspecting rubes. We look back at the most notable, which luckily are a lot about Julio Jones and less about Chris Weinke.
