A couple of weeks ago was the last face-off for this NFC South pair. The Carolina Panthers had been having injury difficulties and issues replacing Cam Newton’s quarterbacking skills, and the Falcons were trying to bounce back without Matt Ryan for the first time since 2008, as we saw in Week 8.
Now, in Week 10, here’s a look at what the NFL betting odds think will happen in the return fixture, along with some more expert analysis. With a clearer view of starting quarterbacks in both Carolina and Atlanta, which of the new faces in town will come out on top this week as the Falcons travel to the Panthers?

Falcons vs Panthers Highlights
Recapping: The Falcons had been leading the series 34-20 a couple of weeks ago in the NFC South divisional matchup, but struggled at home in the last few encounters at the Mercedes Benz Stadium, up against a Panthers team with little success, having won only 3 of their last 10 encounters against the Falcons. That was prior to NFL Week 8’s matchup.
This week’s traveling opponents are familiar faces to the Carolina Panthers and not ones that the Panthers are likely to welcome. A string of bad results leading up to this season left them with a victory in only 3 of their last 10 encounters. Coming into the 2022 season, since the Falcons are leading the series by 34-20, and without the off-season moves of Matt Ryan, they might well have been favorites for another road win here.
The home team has been able to rely on a solid defense, which can’t be said for the Falcons who finished last season with the 7th worst yards per game average in the league, which still makes for a great opportunity for the Carolina offense.
