Carolina Panthers vs Atlanta Falcons Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NFL Football Game on Sunday October11th, 2020.
Carolina played well on offense, averaging 24.8 points per game. They are averaging 274 passing yards and 116.3 rushing yards per game.
Teddy Bridgewater threw for 1,147 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. He also added 70 yards and a rushing touchdown.
Christian McCaffrey leads the team with 150 rushing yards and four touchdowns, even though he has only played two games. He is expected to return from injury in a few weeks.
Carolina is an average defensive team, yielding 25.5 points per game. They have kept their last two opponents at 18.5 points per game and will need to keep playing well if they want to beat the Falcons.
The Falcons had a 1-7 start last season, but they managed to turn things around and won six of their last eight games, helping to save the job from head coach Dan Quinn.
This season, they're off to an 0-4 start, and with the Houston Texans firing their head coach after a similar start, don't expect Quinn to have a much longer job if the Falcons don't win this game.
Matt Ryan has done a great job for the Falcons this season, totaling 1,246 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
Todd Gurley II leads the team with 254 rushing yards and four touchdowns, while Calvin Ridley leads the team with 349 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
Defensively, the Falcons weren't good, giving up 34.5 points per game. They have played a bit better in recent weeks, holding their last two opponents at 30 points, but they will have to play better than in these games if they want to break their losing streak.
