2020 Thursday Night Football: Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers October 29, 2020 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Atlanta Falcons will face the Carolina Panthers in a NFC South matchup in Week 8 of the 2020 NFL season.

Kick-off is set 8:20PM EDT at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC.

The Atlanta Falcons had high hopes for a potential playoff spot after closing out the 2019 on a winning note.

That plan has been altered after losing their first five games this season.

It eventually led to the sacking of coach Dan Quinn.

Atlanta is having trouble closing out games even under interim coach Raheem Morris.

With a 1-6 record, Atlanta is poised to atone one of their losses this season when they face Carolina for the 2nd time.

The Carolina Panthers are in rebuilding mode after a poor showing in the 2019 season.

Carolina has been out of the playoffs for three years since 2015.

New QB Teddy Bridgewater has played well without injured Pro Bowl RB Christian McCaffrey.

With a 3-4 record, they hanged tough against some strong opponents and these losses will make this team stronger as they continue to rebuild their franchise.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Atlanta Falcons as the favorite to win over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night.
