Panthers run for 201 yards in 20-17 win over Falcons

Panthers run for 201 yards in 20-17 win over Falcons

Carolina rushed for 100 yards for the fifth time this season, led by Cam Newton's 44 yards on the ground.

Stewart had two fumbles and four carries in the first quarter.

Trailing 20-10 to the Carolina Panthers, the Falcons elected to go for it.

Atlanta narrowly escaped the New York Jets in Week 8 with a 25-20 victory, keeping the Falcons within a game back of Carolina for second place in the NFC South.

But Carolina had its own answer at receiver in Funchess, who played a physical game with five catches for 86 yards (many after the catch), including a 33-yard long. Sanu did all of his damage in the first half, getting the Falcons on the board with a short six-yard touchdown.

On the fourth-down run, tight end Austin Hooper was flagged for a personal foul penalty, moving the ball 15 yards in Carolina's favor and setting up the Panthers at the 50-yard line.




Early in the fourth quarter, things are not going so great for the Atlanta Falcons.

Stewart fumbled twice in the first quarter, both forced by Falcons safety Keanu Neal and recovered by Atlanta. Atlanta leads the all-time series with Carolina, 27-17.

For most of the first half of the Panthers' first game since trading Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina's offense didn't amount to much. A deconstructed flea-flicker to Curtis Samuel went for 14 yards, while a reverse play was carried by Russell Shepard for 11 yards.

With a tough slate of games ahead, including a pair of non-division matchups against the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, the Falcons will likely continue to work on executing in third-down situations.

Falcons fans were frustrated about Jones, but just as frustrated with their 2017 Super Bowl runners-up as a whole, as the Panthers rallied from a 10-0 hole to win their second straight game and improve to 6-3.

Carolina's defense then held Ryan and the offense to four consecutive stops to get the ball back on downs, and sealed the game.
