Falcons, Panthers in old school shootout

The Panthers still can’t stop the run, but the Falcons aren’t stopping theirs either.

The same Michael Turner that looked like an old man the first three weeks looks young again, with 123 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown (coming on a 60-yard pass). The Falcons are hanging onto a 24-21 lead in the fourth quarter.

The Panthers have been willing to trick it up a bit (with little used wide receiver Armanti Edwards catching his first career pass and then throwing one), but they’re still running more than passing, which remains their formula.
