The Atlanta Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers this Sunday, October 16th at 1pm ET at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a 25-14 loss to the defending NFC and Super Bowl champion-Green Bay Packers last Sunday. The Falcons now sit at 2-3 on the season and in 3rd place in the NFC South division behind the division leading New Orleans Saints (4-1), and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3).

The Saints are just coming off a 30-27 victory over the Carolina Panthers and have now won four in a row after dropping the season opener to Green Bay. The Saints wrap up their three-game road trip by taking on fellow NFC South opponent-Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Tampa Bay has the tough task of trying to right the ship after their 48-3 blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. They'll have their hands full with the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

The Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers this week in a crucial game early in the season for Atlanta.
