The Falcons and Panthers are playing for little but pride.
But at the moment, the Falcons are giving the Panthers’ a good bruising.
Calvin Ridley just scored a touchdown to give Atlanta a 10-3 lead in the second quarter, holding the ball out for a little taunting on his way to the end zone.
The Panthers are playing with an interim head coach (Perry Fewell) and an interim play-caller (Scott Turner), after the firing of Ron Rivera, which came after their fourth straight loss. As it turns out, it might not have been all his fault.
