#Falcons beat #Panthers 20-13 to end their bid for an undefeated season #CARvsATL

28 Dec

It was another great game by WR Julio Jones, a gutsy performance by QB Matt Ryan and steady play by RB Devonta Freman that fueled Atlanta’s win over the Panthers. Freeman scored the ‘Birds first TD with a nice burst off tackle to tie the score at 7. Jones and Ryan later hooked up on a spectacular 70 yard leaping catch and run to give the Falcons a lead they would never relinquish. The ‘Big 3’played well when it counted, converting key 3rd downs to keep drives alive.

The ‘D’ was sharp as well/ They harassed  MVP Cam Newton and kept him from the making the big plays that burned them in the past. They also got  a sack, and forced a fumble to seal the game with about a minute to go.

The Falcons at time of this story still had a mathematical chance to make the playoffs. But even if they don’t make it, their season can be salvaged by beating the Saints next week to finish 9-7. Let’s see if they can finish strong
