It was Atlanta's second misfortune in five days in the wake of falling 20-17 to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday — a game it needed to have to stay in the lead position in the division.
The falcons (4-6) entered the night tied for the lead position with Tampa Straight, yet fell a half-game behind the Pirates, who'll play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks in Munich, Germany.
The reality is the Falcons are a one-layered offense, which will just go such a long ways in the NFL. Atlanta came in positioned fourth in the association in surging, yet all at once 30th in passing.
ThePanthers countered by placing additional safeguards in the crate with the emphasis on removing Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson in the run game and constraining Mariota to beat them through the air.
While he tossed for 186 yards and two scores, Mariota was additionally sacked multiple times and tossed a block attempt.
