Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers

After missing the last two games due to a toe injury, Atlanta Falcons superstar receiver Julio Jones is ready to return for the playoff push.

"I thought he looked great", Quinn said. Falcons possess a 26-17 series lead and have won the last two games, including a 48-33 verdict in Week 4 this year. WR Julio Jones amassed a career-high 300 receiving yards and a TD in the last meeting and leads the National Football League with 1,253 receiving yards.

Will the Panthers pull off the upset and get their revenge against the Falcons when the NFC South rivals clash at 1:00PM ET today?

Thomas Davis: Davis earned another Pro Bowl nod this season.

With Carolina's chances of making the playoffs "minimal", Newton said, Kuechly should rest and prepare for future seasons when the team has a realistic chance to reach the playoffs.

Tampa Bay (8-6) would have to lose its final two games, including the finale against the Panthers.

And it will be another game without star linebacker Luke Kuechly. "I don't think, for me, I would want to jeopardize that for a long, long-term issue just to bring him back".

Tialavea was called up earlier in the week from the practice squad to help the tight ends group who is suffering from injuries from Jacob Tamme and Austin Hooper. But he also got a personal foul for taking a swing at a Falcons player that could have gotten him ejected. Ryan threw 27 completions on 33 attempts for 277 yards. Jones finished with four catches for 60 yards.

The Falcons have now outgained five of their last seven opponents, and outrushed three of their last four foes.

His running game is primarily composed of Devonta Freeman, who has 930 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground, and a per-carry average of 4.6 yards.

The Atlanta Falcons did exactly what they needed to do in beating the Panthers on Saturday.
