Falcons scoop up two fumbles fast; Neal causes both

Refocused: Carolina Panthers 20, Atlanta Falcons 17

While they were flawless inside of the red zone on Sunday during their 20-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers (6-3), the Falcons' offense couldn't get much going on third downs.

Meanwhile, the defense struggled to limit rookie back Christian McCaffery on the ground and through the air. It marked the first time Stewart has lost two fumbles and fumbled twice in the same game since coming into the National Football League as a first-round draft pick.

-When the Panthers scored two touchdowns in the final 1:55 of the first half, it was the time they've ever scored multiple touchdowns in the final two minutes of a half.

Sterling FALLS ahead of BOE interest rate meeting
The Bank is looking to cool surging inflation, which has been sent higher by sharp falls in the pound since the Brexit vote. Sterling fell to one-week lows against the euro following the decision, with advancing 1.21% to 0.8878 from 0.8758 earlier.

Atlanta narrowly escaped the New York Jets in Week 8 with a 25-20 victory, keeping the Falcons within a game back of Carolina for second place in the NFC South. He had a 4-yard touchdown on a pitchout as part of a day in which he had 66 yards rushing and 28 more receiving, including several plays he made for key first downs. Julio Jones would drop a gimme touchdown on a fourth-down heave by quarterback Matt Ryan late in the fourth quarter. They led 10-7 at home against Buffalo at halftime only to lose 23-17. It marked the third time this season the 4-4 Falcons blew a lead to lose a game. Adams left the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury, however, and wasn't involved in the Panthers' final stop.

Carolina has figured out a recipe for success this season. Defensive end Mario Addison followed up Horton's sack with one of his own on the next play for a 6-yard loss. The Falcons won last season's Christmas Eve game at Carolina, 33-16. Sunday, he lost that many in a three-carry stretch in the first quarter. Here's where I should give a shout-out to the offensive line, too, as Carolina ran the ball for 201 yards. In the first game without Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers WR Devin Funchess was Newton's favorite target, hauling in five receptions for 86 of Newton's 137 passing yards.
