Thursday Night Football Recap: Falcons Hang on Late to Defeat Panthers

Falcons-Panthers

With the loss of Cam Newton, the Carolina Panthers turned to Teddy Bridgewater this offseason to lead them. So far, the Panthers have struggled in the NFC South. The Panthers faced off against a fellow NFC South bottom-dweller on Thursday Night Football when they took on the Atlanta Falcons.

SportsCastr News NFL’s Adam Armbrecht, Lawrence Owen, and Ray Rauth had the coverage for the Falcons 25-17 victory. After taking an early lead, the Carolina Panthers were unable to maintain momentum, culminating in a key 4th quarter interception by Teddy Bridgewater.

Despite his meager rushing yards (46), Todd Gurley added a touchdown for the Atlanta Falcons. Gurley now has 8 rushing touchdowns on the year with a paltry 3.8 yards per carry. The SportsCastr streams discussed how Gurley has had quite an interesting usage since being acquired from the LA Rams.

In a season filled with heartbreak for the Atlanta Falcons, a win like this could help turn the team around. On their SportsCastr stream, Lawrence Owen noted that a win like this could be very helpful for the team. If stars Matt Ryan and Julio Jones can continue their hot play, perhaps the team could go on a much-needed run.

Week 8 is filled with premier match-ups. From the Steelers-Ravens to the 49ers-Seahawks, we are sure to see some tight games. The SportsCastr News NFL team will have the pregame and postgame streams ready to go this Sunday.
