Carolina vs Atlanta: Perfect Panthers Face Low Flying Falcons NFL Week 16 Call
Carolina Panthers: Looking to lock down top NFC playoff perch
Aiming to lock down home field throughout the NFC playoffs, Carolina looks to crush Atlanta for a third straight time. The Panthers thrashed the Falcons 34-3 at the Georgia Dome during Week 17 last season and then the Cats mauled the Black Birds 38-0 two weeks ago in Charlotte. Carolina is now 5-1 during the last six meetings in this series – outscoring Atlanta by a 174-72 combined final count. After finishing the 2014 season with four straight wins, Carolina aims for a 19th straight regular season win – the Indianapolis Colts 23 victories between 2008 and 2009 is the current record. We believe a perfect regular season record is high on the Panthers wish list.
Atlanta Falcons: Snap a long six game losing streak to keep faint playoff hopes alive
Mathematically still alive for a Wild Card position in the NFC, Atlanta needs to win out while Seattle and Minnesota both have to lose their two remaining games. Winning out will be tough enough but needing so much additional help means you can put a fork in the Falcons. Following a 6-1 season start, that was gained with the help of some smoke and mirrors, Atlanta lost their next six games by a 145-66 margin. Playing a third straight road game, QB Matt Ryan & Crew snapped their losing skid with a 23-17 win on the road in Jacksonville over the Jaguars last Sunday. Julio Jones had a 118 receiving yards and his first TD since Week 8 in that contest. The Falcons are finished.
Atlanta vs Carolina NFL Week 16 Call: We mentioned that Panthers head coach Ron Rivera lost out on a perfect season when Chicago went 15-1 back in 1985. The Bears pummeled New England 46-10 and captured Super Bowl XX but one has to feel that Rivera would like to join the modern “perfect regular season club” that consists of the Don Shula coached Miami Dolphins (14-0 in 1972) and Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots (16-0 in 2007). Give us the Panthers with a 1000 unit wager on the money line price posted on the NFL betting board at the William Hill sportsbook.
