Here is a look at the Falcons' inactive list:

QB Dominque Davis

CB Chris Owens

TE Michael Palmer

The Falcons are looking to go 4-0 and remain as one of the few unbeaten teams in the NFL. Going into Sunday's game, only the Falcons, Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals have gone without a loss.

Carolina is coming off a disappointing defeat at the hands of the New York Giants last Thursday.
