Winners and losers from the Panthers' Week 9 win vs. Falcons

Falcons vs. Panthers Final injury reports for Week 9

The short-yardage stop by Carolina helped flip the momentum of the game and sparked a 14-point run for the Panthers heading into halftime.

Tom Savage, who was benched in the Houston Texans' first game of the season, will now take back the starting quarterback role as star rookie Deshaun Watson tore his ACL in practice on Thursday.

Leading the way for the Panthers - as he has several times this season - was Newton. Julio Jones managed to snag just half of his 12 targets and committed an egregious drop on a surefire touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter. This was a game that Atlanta could have definitely won, but the Panthers with more poise than the Falcons. Stewart wasn't pulled from the game, but it may have been a coincidence that McCaffrey saw a good amount of time in the backfield the rest of the way. In fact, no other wide receiver recorded a single catch.

The Panthers tallied three sack last week against Tampa Bay to remain ranked second in the league with 27. Sunday, he lost that many in a three-carry stretch in the first quarter. The 16-year veteran tallied his 151st career sack last week, moving him into fourth all-time in National Football League history behind Bruce Smith (200), Reggie White (198) and Kevin Greene (160). Elliott's role in this game could be huge as he faces a Kanas City defense that is allowing 131 yards per game.

The Panthers' previous season low is 80 penalties, set in 2013, and 637 penalty yards, set in 2008. The 36-year old intercepted an errant pass by Matt Ryan and returned it 40 yards.

Atlanta holds the all-time series advantage, 27-17.

With a tough slate of games ahead, including a pair of non-division matchups against the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, the Falcons will likely continue to work on executing in third-down situations.

Atlanta nearly made a game of it late, cutting the Carolina lead to 20-17 late in the fourth quarter.

It appeared in the early stages of this game, that Week 9 wasn't going to be the Carolina Panthers week.

Falcons fans were frustrated about Jones, but just as frustrated with their 2017 Super Bowl runners-up as a whole, as the Panthers rallied from a 10-0 hole to win their second straight game and improve to 6-3.

The Dec. 3 game vs. the Saints is looming large.

Carolina finally found its legs late in the second quarter.
