Last week: 22 (+3)

Record: 1-2

The Panthers looked horrible at home on Thursday Night, but they were the inferior team and superior, veteran, proven teams always have the advantage over teams like the Panthers. The good news is that they still rank 3rd in the league in yards per play differential. They’re getting killed in turnover differential, with a -6, tied for worst with the Eagles, but that tends to even out over time. Well rested, they go into a tough test in Atlanta this week and I think they have a better shot than people are giving them, even if the Falcons are awesome at home.
