Matt Ryan, Falcons Hold off Teddy Bridgewater, Panthers to Improve to 2-6

While the 2020 season has gone anything but according to plan for the Atlanta Falcons, they can at least take solace knowing they can still beat the Carolina Panthers.

Atlanta defeated its NFC South rival 25-17 in Thursday's showdown at Bank of America Stadium and prevented the Panthers from sweeping the season series for the first time since 2013. Although Carolina won the first matchup this year, the Falcons are an impressive 9-2 in their last 11 meetings.

and the defense led the way in the latest one, helping their team improve to a disappointing 2-6 overall but a solid 2-1 in the last three games.
