Panthers vs. Falcons: 14-10 after First Half

New, comments

The Falcons were doing well in the first half, though they seem intent on keeping the Panthers in the game.

Scott Cunningham

The Atlanta Falcons have been fighting hard to earn a win for Tony Gonzales... and keep the No.2 seed hopes alive for the New Orleans Saints on Sean Payton's birthday. Barring a terrible pick-6 by Matt Ryan, Atlanta performed well until the Panthers touchdown drive at the end of the half... greatly assisted by some Falcons pass interference.

While Atlanta has been terrible all season, the Falcons haven't had the positive energy of a fan base like the entire WhoDat Nation cheering them on before today. Will they be able to maintain their lead over the Carolina Panthers, or will they provide another second-half collapse?

Keep watching scoreboards the game, and hanging out with your fellow Saints fans here on CSC.
