10 Notable Numbers From the Panthers’ Week 16 Loss to Atlanta


Number of wins, out of six chances, the Panthers have this season after trailing at halftime.



Tight ends who have put together a string of three straight 1,000-yard seasons. Greg Olsen’s 59 receiving yards Saturday put him at 1,051 yards with a game to go. He totaled 1,104 in 2015 and 1,008 in 2014.



Field goals blocked by rookie defensive tackle Vernon Butler since Week 11. Before Butler did it against the Saints last month, the Panthers’ last blocked field goal came courtesy of former defensive end Julius Peppers in the 2009 season opener against the Eagles.



Average fourth-quarter points scored by the Panthers in their past nine games. They’ve scored just one fourth-quarter touchdown (at Raiders) since Week 8.



Falcons tight ends who scored their first career touchdowns in games against the Panthers. Austin Hooper did it in Week 4, and then Josh Perkins and D.J. Tialavea did it on Saturday.



Incompletions thrown by Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan during the first half against the Panthers in 2016. Yeah, six TOTAL. After torching the Panthers for 222 yards while completing 14 of his 17 passes during the first half in Week 4, Ryan went 19-of-22 for 189 yards before halftime on Saturday.



Career-high tackles for linebacker Shaq Thompson, who broke his previous high of eight (at NO, 10/16/16).



League-leading sacks for the Panthers after they collected four against Ryan. The Broncos, who are second with 40, play the Chiefs Sunday night.



Difference in rating points of quarterback Cam Newton’s past two games against Atlanta at Bank of America Stadium. Last December, he was 15-of-21 for 265 yards with three touchdowns and a 153.3 rating. Saturday, he was 18-of-43 for 198 yards with a touchdown, two interceptions and a passer rating of 44.5, the third-worst mark of his career.



First-quarter yards the Falcons totaled against the Panthers in 2016. Meanwhile, Carolina’s offense totaled 50 yards in two first quarters against Atlanta.
