Atlanta Falcons vs Carolina Panthers Game Preview

Why Atlanta Falcons Will Win

Run, run, and keep running.

The return of Cordarrelle Patterson helped in last week’s tough loss to the Chargers, rookie Tyler Allgeier is great when it gets his chances, and Caleb Huntley has turned this into a three-headed monster to go along with the mobility of QB Marcus Mariota.
