After just one week of the regular season the Atlanta Falcons went from being the NFL’s healthiest team to losing to 3 Pro Bowlers. RB Devonta Freeman MLB Deion Jones and S Keanu Neal will not be playing vs the Carolina Panthers today due to serious injuries.

The good news is that their replacements S – Damontae Kazee, LB Duke Riley, and RB Tevin Coleman still give them a great chance to win. In limited carries Coleman has averaged almost 5 yards per vs the Panthers.t, Although Riley can’t match the game changing skills of Jones, his speed will Be Key in keeping Panthers QB Cam Newton in check. Kazee has.been a pleasant surprise since training camp with his enthusiastic and agressive play. He hits almost as hard as Neal but is better in coverage.

Dan Quinn has preached next man up readiness since his arrival. Don’t be shocked if  these 3 aren’t key factors if the Falcons win today’s game.
