2019 NFL Draft Hats from New EraThe Atlanta Falcons pulled off a major upset last week on the road against the New Orleans Saints last week. Atlanta would look to pull off another upset on the road in Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers.

The Falcons defense forced four turnovers in this game and they took down Carolina on the road by a score of 29-3.

Atlanta’s defense picked off Kyle Allen four times in this game. Allen has looked lost recently. Even though he completed 31-of-50 passes for 325 yards in this game as well, it is obvious that he is starting to get overwhelmed.

Kyle Allen is going to have to suck it up for the rest of the season with Cam Newton on Injured Reserve. Allen also rushed for seven yards on one carry.

Christian McCaffrey led the Panthers in this game in both rushing and receiving. He rushed for 70 yards on 14 carries. McCaffrey caught 11 passes for 121 yards receiving.

D.J. Moore caught eight passes for 95 yards receiving.

Greg Olsen caught five passes for 57 yards receiving.

Curtis Samuel caught four passes for 25 yards receiving.

With the Falcons leading 3-0 in the first-quarter, Kenjon Barner returned a punt for a 78-yard touchdown.

With Atlanta leading 13-0 in the second-quarter. Qadree Ollison scored on a 4-yard touchdown run. He rushed for 11 yards on four carries and a touchdown.

In the third-quarter, Matt Ryan threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley for the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan completed 21-of-31 passes for 311 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for zero yards on two carries.

Ridley caught eight passes for 143 yards and a touchdown.

Julio Jones was solid in this game as well for Atlanta with six receptions for 91 yards receiving.

Devonta Freeman was out for this game once again for the Falcons with a foot injury.

Austin Hooper missed this game with a knee injury for Atlanta and he might be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Brian Hill rushed for 30 yards on 15 carries. He got the start at running back for the Atlanta Falcons in this game. Hill also caught one pass for eight yards receiving.

Kenjon Barner completed a pass for three yards. He also rushed for 15 yards on two carries.

The only points that were scored in this game for Carolina was on a 31-yard field goal by Joey Syle in the fourth-quarter. They were already trailing 26-0 at that point.

If Atlanta continues to play this week for the rest of the season, Dan Quinn might be kept around as the head coach for the 2020 NFL Season.

The Atlanta Falcons (3-7) will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-8) next Sunday.

The Carolina Panthers (5-5) will host the New Orleans Saints (8-2) next Sunday.
