The curse is finally broken!
The Carolina Panthers just dominated the Atlanta Falcons in their first Atlanta road game win since the winter of 2014, with a final score of 23-16, even without their star RB Christian McCaffrey.
The win came from 3 main sources – QB Teddy Bridgewater, RB Mike Davis, and our especially hungry defense.
Bridgewater threw for 261 yards in the first half alone (the most first-half passing yards of any quarterback so far this season). He finished the game 27-37 with 313 total passing hards, 2 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions.
Davis plowed through Falcon defenders for most of the game, racking up a career-high of 149 total scrimmage yards (89 rushing yards and 60 receiving yards from 9 catches).
Our defense was the final ingredient in yesterday’s win, holding the Falcons to just 1 score in the first half and stopping them on Carolina’s 5-yard line in the final minutes of the game, setting up a game-clinching interception for safety Juston Burris.
Here are all the highlights from yesterday’s game:
