2018 NFL Week 2: Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers September 14, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons will play the Carolina Panthers at home in Week 2 of the 2018 NFL. Game time is set at 1PM ET and will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Atlanta will begin a three-game home stretch beginning Week 2 against Carolina. The Falcons must regroup after a Week 1 loss against the Eagles. They need to bring a better plan to pick up their first win of the season against their division rival.

They must be better in the red zone compared to Week 1. If they will only convert 20% of scoring chances in the red zone, the Falcons will not have much success against the Panthers. Slowing down Panthers’ Cam Newton is also a major key on this game.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed as the Atlanta Falcons as a 5.5-point favorite to beat the Carolina Panthers on Sunday noon.
