Julio Jones running wide open in the end zone is the kind of thing that the Atlanta Falcons dream of. Funchess ended up with five catches for 86 yards, including a 33-yarder.

Penalties made situations worse, and the Falcons couldn't convert in short yardage situations. Somehow, Jones got completely free.

Ryan completed 24-of-38 for 313 yards and two touchdowns. McCaffery had 68 yards on the ground and five receptions for 28 yards.

She reminded us of the strong personality of Jinnah, who dedicated his life for the creation of Pakistan", he added. She recalled her meeting with the lady saying, "I was fortunate enough to have met her and really admired her".

The Falcons didn't waste much time Sunday adding to their miniscule takeaway total as strong safety Keanu Neal twice in the first quarter forced Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart to fumble and Atlanta recovered both time. After taking over on downs at the 50-yard line, the Panthers marched down the field and cut the deficit to 10-7 after a 4-yard run by rookie Christian McCaffrey.

In the first half alone, Newton shouldered almost the entirety of Carolina's rushing offense with 74 yards and a touchdown to Carolina's 119 net rushing yards. He rushed for another 85 yards.

Kicker Matt Bryant suffered an injury, and it put the Falcons in four down territory early in the game. After Ryan's interception, Newton ran 9 yards, diving into the end zone, to give the Panthers the lead before halftime. Sanu has now gone for 65 yards and/or one touchdown in the Falcons' past three games.

Atlanta has also struggled to find consistency, but in their comeback win over the New York Jets in Week 8, it seemed as if they found something to work with in the passing game. The defense forced the Panthers to go three-and-out, but the offense tried four straight passes to get a 1st down and couldn't get it done. The Falcons will face the Cowboys at home and then the Seahawks on the road.
