The Falcons can get back to .500, solidify their hold on the NFC South, and beat a divisional rival for the first time this year on Sunday. That’s a pretty great mix of positive outcomes for a single win, so let’s hope they can do it.

Their opponent is a Panthers team trying to find its way after firing Matt Rhule, and they got off to a nice start after beating up on the Buccaneers a week ago. The Falcons can’t assume Carolina will fall back to earth, so the hope is that they can use the same quality ground game, efficient passing attack, and opportunistic defense that got them a victory against San Francisco to beat the Panthers. I really do like their chances.

This is also an excellent chance to see how the Falcons bounce back from their first bad loss of the 2022 season. Last year, Atlanta lost badly almost every time they faced an actual contender, but this year they had kept every game close even in defeat until Cincinnati. They should be plenty motivated.

Here’s what you need to know to watch the game on Sunday.

Key Questions: Will the Falcons get their very first divisional win of the 2022 season? Can a passing game that has slowed in recent weeks help lift this team to victory? Will the Panthers actually put up a fight, or will they crash back down to earth after an unexpected win?
