Atlanta Falcons Team Defense at Carolina Panthers

In case you didn’t notice last week, Deion made his second big splash since returning in Week 13. That first game back he had 15 total tackles as the Falcons defense. held their opponent under 22 points for the first time in four weeks. They came up big again last week as they pulled off their first win Since Week 9 and Jones had a pick six. He’s made a big difference. The Falcons have 21 sacks in Weeks 1-12. They have 13 sacks in the last three weeks combined. With Carolina shelving Cam Newton for the remainder of the season, we’re betting that the Falcons try to pounce on the opportunity take advantage of Taylor Heinicke’s inexperience.
