That so? Obviously we hope Trevor Lawrence is okay.

That's huge for Clemson.
All right, let's get back into the game.
Gonna come in motion, and it's gonna be another play fake, too girly.
Ryan's gonna wanna go deep again, and he's gonna get Julio again.
Another big time pickup there for Atlanta.
So two straight play fake deep bombs toe Julio from Matt Ryan.
They both worked very well.
And just like that, Atlanta's right outside of the red zone.
Two plays in, man.
I'm getting all this stuff up.
All right, There we go.
Falcons to the Reds.
Oh, well, just outside of the red zone two for to 51 yards.
Hirsen motion gonna give it to girl? That was in another place with a girl.
He seems to be a Delta.
Hayden Hurst Hurst will take it there inside the red zone for this time.
Now he's inside the 15 the former rave in Hayden Hurst.
And then they call four really involved with Bristol Bill.
Um and man, this is just way too easy for the Atlanta Falcons right now.
I'm putting it on the score stuff, so I don't forget it.
Alright, guys. Alright.
Panthers way and way.
Okay, now we're all good.
Matt Ryan's in our center pending a stack, the boxes time.
They will give it to girl who's gonna try and go off tackle.
He's gonna get across one guy and then £400 immediately for what turned out to be no gain.
Okay, Second down, Coming up the Atlanta Falcons this year.
58% touchdown percentage in the red zone, 14 resident touchdowns, 24 trips Second nine Gonna come up for the Falcons.
Of course, Calvin Ridley has been phenomenal this season.
Top five and catches and receiving yards and receiving.
That's down this year.
And of course I have Julio Jones.
Well, they also won six record and a interim head coach and Ryan Morris here is Ryan in the gun.
Julio came in motion play clock winding down here is Ryan.
He's gonna throw underneath.
He's got a man there.
Calvin Ridley, who's gonna make a couple men miss and take it inside the five to around the four yard line.
Calvin Ridley, third year wide receiver out of Alabama, making that one to be third down and two coming up for Atlanta.
They're gonna come on up.
Yeah, I'm trying everything loaded up.
I'm sorry about this, guys.
Third and two is gonna give too girly.
He's gonna push forward and he's gonna be just near the line.
I don't know if he'll get in or not. Definitely.
I don't got the first down or not.
They're gonna rule them just shy.
They're gonna ask to measure.
They're gonna measure this one. It is very close.
I'm not sure if they got in, but some numbers here in the meantime for the panthers, The falcons Um Nope.
They're gonna room short fourth down and one is the call.
And they will as they should go for this.
On fourth down, Um, Atlanta will call time out.
I don't think there's any chance they kick this week.
At least they should, and there's no way they should kick this field goal.
It is the Falcons and decisions made by Atlanta.
Well, they're never good, so we'll see.
Best most quarter.
Most receptive quarterback.
Wide receiver, panda in NFL history.
Marvin Harrison, Payton.
That's the most nine and 53 catches between Marvin Harrison, Payton, Manning second all time, Matt Ryan and Julio the 113.
How about that for its Antonio Brown and Ben Roethlisberger, their third on the list? And wow, Well, and to make a field goal, Why, Okay, that's stupid.
This is a very dumb decision by Ryan Morrison.
The Falcons gonna settle for three Young Hoku.
He's 15 16 field goals this year.
54 yard field goals, this long chip shot.
I don't know why they're doing it.
He's gonna make it.
Obviously you got it, But this was stupid.
So 20 yard field goals up in good, and that was I do not understand the decision, thereby Atlanta whatsoever, especially with, you know, aggressive.
They've been throughout the season.
I mean, they didn't last week in Detroit.
They went for on fourth and five, up by one in the red zone last week.
This week, fourth and goal, first version of the game. Trying Get to momentum.
You're inside the five yard line.
What do you dio kick a field goal? I do not understand in the slightest.
And, yeah, just very stupid stupid decision by the Atlanta Falcons.
They don't think of three.
Nothing lead here in the first quarter.
Quick first drive and, yeah, that that way I was done.
But you're watching the NFL on the next network were about Teddy Bridgewater, first round pick for the Minnesota Vikings back in 2014.
He's had a very interesting career.
He wanted rookie of the Year in 2014.
He was looking good for the future. The Vikings.
Then he had, well, his knee kind of sort of got destroyed completely on a noncontact injury training camp.
Back in 27 16 16 2016 his second year in the league, third year in the third year in the league was.
It was his third year.
Yeah, it was the third year in the league.
He got destroyed.
The Vikings in 2017 is fourth year and they almost a Super Bowl under case Keenum and a little chippy here on the kickoff of that's on the ends of red Packets graduation coming out.
Well, they let him go at off season.
After his working contract was up, he went to New Orleans.
He was a backup for a year.
Then you actually went to the Jets is where he went.
And then he got traded to the Panthers before, I mean to the Saints because he isn't even began Bridgewater with the back up his first year.
Second year is back up again, obviously, But you're a Breeze got hurt.
He went five and was a starter.
Being a backup with Saints now is is in Carolina divisional rival within the way.
Very interesting career.
He's had a great year, but s so far first down.
And that's without Christian McCaffrey, the best player who is still not back.
He is off the i r, but he is not.
I mean, he's practicing, but he's not on the I r or playing tonight.
Bridgewater gonna get things started here with incomplete pass there over the middle trying to find d.
J Moore in Kendall Sheffield broke that one up is still down on the field.
Um, well, take a look at that.
There is Bridgewater trying to fit it in.
It was a tough throw, and he almost made it, um, to d j.
Actually did make it D j.
Morris couldn't hold on to it.
The third year receiver out of Maryland.
Uh, they're gonna take a commercial break, but Christian McCaffrey still has that knee injury.
He should be back next week.
Um, in fact, I would be willing to bet if this game was on Sunday.
There's a chance a chance he plays this week, and I'm gonna be pretty.
I'll be pretty surprised if he's not back next week.
All right, there, Ugo.
So Kendall Sheffield down and injured.
Now I'm gonna take a break.
We right back when they come back.
All right, Now we're back.
I mean, we're not back.
I want to talk about this stuff.
I kind of destroyed when it happened.
But I'm going to do it again here because I need to kind of put this point home.
Be a lot of Falcons are one and six.
They have an interim head coach, Ryan Morris.
Fourth and goal.
Answer the five.
They call the time out to talk things over.
What do they dio? They kicked a 20 yard field goal.
Are you kidding me? Look, we just need to talk about how stupid that ISS like seriously.
Who does that? Apparently Ryan Morris showing her why he has not been a head coach in nine years.
Oh, my God, Seriously, It's unbelievable.
Ryan Morris, a 44 year old interim head coach.
He was the head coach for Tampa Bay from 09 and 2011.
He then became the DVS coach in Washington for 2012 2014.
He's been in Atlanta in 2015 years, assistant head coach in 2015 as well as the DBS coach.
His head coach, in 2015 and 2016 2018 is also quite receivers coach.
Last year, he was assistant head coach and secondary coach.
This year, he was the defensive coordinator for the first four games of the year, and now he is the interim head coach.
He won a Super Bowl a while back in the defense of quality control coach in Tampa Bay in 2002.
All right, second out of 12th play from scrimmage for the Carolina Panthers so far. 11 10 to go.
Accord number one.
Mike Davis in the backfield.
Teddy Bridgewater Pressure coming to get it off underneath.
That's to be caught by another guy who has really come on this here.
Robby Anderson, the former New York Jets wide receiver who has been spectacular this season.
But Teddy Bridgewater, Onley player in NFL with a 70 70% complete manager.
Better with 1900 passengers.
The only player to have both another season truly been great in his Panthers.
UH, Dave debut season third down and five to come up here for Carolina's Bridgewater is all alone in the backfield.
8 per second base percentage on third down, our second in the league this season.
Here we go, Bridgewater.
He's going to get rid of it and completely undefined Robby Anderson and a late flag will come in, and that will be pass interference.
At least it should be. It's the right call.
It's just I'm assuming that's what the call is. It should be pass interference.
And, yeah, it will be Sean Hockey Lee seven seasons NFL official and it is positive parents.
So obviously, first down Yeah, yeah, I'd say, Oliver, the second year corner.
First round pick 2019.
I believe Bridgewater on a bootleg, using the speed to get away from Dante Fowler times when I have to get rid of it. Incomplete.
What a job, though by Britain.
Get away from Dante Fowler was coming in.
There is another flag down, and I think it might be roughing the passer.
I didn't see it because the camera angle, but because of that, normally I just having the pastor could be a whole I don't know.
I didn't see it, but we'll see what unnecessary roughness hitting quarterback about so saying.
Come to think of roughing the passer, I thought at first down they're gonna call that one on Deon Jones, who came in and hit him well after he threw that ball.
Well, when you slow it down well after, I don't know how well after it.
Really waas, right, Grady.
Jared got him earlier.
Bridgewater seeing a little bit beating so far right here.
Look, first Dad coming up.
Panthers in the I formation.
Robby Anderson split out wide by himself.
D. J. Moore, the on the other side.
This looks like a pure running play, and it will be the Mike Davis of the middle who's gonna get some space and picking up about seven.
Mike Davis came in and filled the role of Christian McCaffrey phenomenally this season.
The Panthers without their best player.
They serve ranked 20th in the league in rushing offense.
11th and passing 16th of Roll The Old Line.
Greg Little, Chris Read, Matt Paris, John Miller and Taylor Moten and then Vax.
Receivers Mike Davis, Alex Armagh, Robby Anderson, D J.
Moore and Chris Manner.
Chris Manners. Replacing, of course.
Franchise legend Greg Olsen, who is now in Seattle, and Teddy Bridgewater, quarterback.
Panthers team this year on offense and defense.
Second on three.
Coming up in the gun trips to the right, Robby Anderson, all alone to the left.
Bridgewater's up enough to Mike Davis.
He's gonna make a man missing in the first time or my Davis cross the 30 and ice pick up there for a first down as Grady Jarrett was the man who chased him down.
Yes, that Grady Jarrett was the one who chased him down.
Right? Hustle there by Jared.
A great moving Mike Davis to get away as well.
We g o to bridge one or does in here.
Right, Bridgewater? Gonna give it off again? Mike Davis gonna make another man.
Miss Bridgewater throws a great blogger.
The 20 to the 15 and one a block by Teddy, still on his feet, actually getting a couple of years.
But Teddy Bridgewater is the only reason when I play work, he had a game.
He was swallowed on.
It's then switched.
Fields was great by him.
And I don't think anything rib as, uh, who was that? Marlon Davis is gonna get him.
And as he switched fields, he was gonna be taken down behind the line. And Teddy Bridgewater.
And he picked up a first down Teddy Bridgewater showing no regard for his safeties going all over the team.
I respect the hell out of that, you know, is Panthers too much to do as well? Panthers inside the Atlanta 12 on first down and 10 and Bridgewater.
We'll hand it off to Curtis Samuel lining up and running back, and Curtis Samuel has a touchdown.
The wide receiver Curtis Samuel lined up as a running back and scored a touchdown.
I did that last week.
He does it again this week as the Panthers will do what the Falcons couldn't and get into the end zone for a Carolina touchdown.
A pure hand off to the running back.
I mean, sorry period of the wide receiver lined up as a running back.
Doing that again.
Great job by him.
And now an extra point attempt for Joey Slye, who barely missed what would have been an NFL record 65 yard field goal last week.
And that's my field, not only within a record, it would have been a game winning field goal.
Extra point is up and good, and it'll be a 73 Carolina in the first quarter front.
Start to this game areas.
Curtis Samuel this season.
I mean, he's been doing for years now, But this season he has done that.
And let's take a look here. Heard the same thing.
Just kind of talked about that a little bit.
Just tell you exactly how often he's like to run because he's done a ton and doing very well.
I assume that's gonna spoil a little bit with Chris McCaffrey coming when he comes back.
But, um, this season McCaffrey.
Premium stats on Pff.
Okay, here we go this season.
Curtis Samuel's line of the backfield 22 times.
Now 23 a swell as an in line blocker a couple times.
I mean, I'm sorry, you know, he's like it was running back 20 times in them in line blocker four having a slot 147 times and not 1 69 times once and kick coverage as well.
But he has been in the backfield 20 different times.
Now 21 getting in and run a 431 40.
He is a very fast guy.
He does is a ton, um, looking at some other stats for him offensively.
Okay, here we go.
Um, he is in his career.
He has 346 rushing yards as well as four rushing touchdowns.
17 different carries for 10 or more yards in his career averages.
Um, where is the yards per carry average is 7.
4 yards per carry in his career.
He had a touchdown around here, and I got to know his fifth rushing touchdown of his career.
Doing a great job.
Now it was like a break, and we'll be back in probably about $30 doing rubbing salt into the wound.
Joe Buck is talking about Todd Gurley and what he did last week to the reason why the Falcons are one in six.
If the Falcons did not blow a lead where they had a 96% chance or better toe win the game this season instead of one and six, you got that record would be, you know what the record being before and to take me forward to.
If it wasn't for the fact, if it wasn't for games where they blew a lead with a 97% probability or better if that didn't happen, maybe four and two right now, that's incredible.
Instead, they're one in six Ryan under center here 8 14 and go on court.
Carolina is gonna be give to Todd.
Girly girly again.
A couple of Matt Ryan so far.
Four for four for 70 yards as girly there picked up again about three ish.
484 Okay, so Todd Gurley got off to a pretty terrible start to the season.
He's actually been very good in recent weeks.
He was pretty good last week.
Obviously. Minds that went mental Mistake.
Um, again, under centers Matt Ryan.
And this time, we're gonna fake it to girls.
Gonna throw over the middle.
He's got guess Julio Jones, Matt Ryan play fake to Julio over the middle.
That is the third time we've seen a Matt Ryan play fake Julio.
I'll say about 15 yards or so.
Game there for Atlanta in their white and black Juries, which I really like, by the way.
Yeah, um, they had good uniforms that before.
I really like Matt Ryan.
I'm not my right Julio Jones already in this game.
We are just over halfway through the first quarter.
Julio already has three catches for 65 yards could be in for a huge day as the Falcons under center of pure I formation.
You're running play. We'll see if I'm right.
It is gonna be a gift. Too girly.
He'll pick up about two.
As Tahir Whitehead.
I believe in the tackle.
Tackle Stevens this year.
20th in rushing, third and passing sixth overall on the deal on the I'm sorry.
Um, Jake Matthews, James Carpenter and other guys.
Todd Gurley Julio. I'm really Russell Gauge. Hayden Hurst. Matt Ryan.
Obviously as well.
Um, Alex Magic Matthews.
I don't everyone hating her.
So I thought it was a false start.
No, he was just backing him, going in motion, taking on.
So I'm gonna come up here for Atlanta.
Is Ryan in the gun this time? Like clock winding down or 3 to 1? There's a snap.
Matt Ryan, a Z girl.
Have a great ship.
And he got Guess who Julio again.
Jeremy Chin, That time in coverage.
I don't know if Jeremy Chin has been coverage on him all day, but that time it was Jeremy Chin.
I don't know how this happened, but you put a rookie safety who has played well this year.
But you put any rookie safety period one on one with Julio Jones, what do you think is gonna happen? One of the things that happen.
Julio Jones, one of best receivers in football for a long time now, man in motion here for Atlanta, that was, I believe, Powell, Ryan once again under center, and it's a game too girly who will get absolutely nothing that it was a great play, thereby Thio here.
Whitehead, the former Detroit lion, I want to say, Let me double check that I have been leading the former Detroit Ryan.
Very alright, yes.
Former Detroit line from 2012 2017.
He was also on the Raiders from 2018 2019.
This is his first season in Carolina.
I wanna be many, many new players in Carolina this season.
Under five minutes to go in. Quarter number one.
Atlanta Driving down the field in the Carolina 36 Ryan, under pressure, will get it off.
Overthrow Hayden Hurst.
Good coverage there by Carolina.
That'll be Matt Ryan's first in completion today.
He's six for seven now for one of three just like that.
It's gonna be great.
Drives kind of stalling out here.
It's third down and 10.
Finally, a great defensive play by Carolina.
Good coverage, right? I mean, a nice job of their on the blitz as well.
By who are you? Oh, that's Jeremy Chin coming in there because I'm applying a nice pressure.
Third down and 10 Carolina has a bunch of guys up in the line of scrimmage.
Understand? Everybody, and Matt Ryan will call a time out.
That is gonna be there.
Second time out already for 44 to go in the first quarter.
And Atlanta already has only one time out.
Remaining Falcons for you.
A lot of talent, no clock management, no fourth quarter skills.
Ask the Falcons God way that the chain gang commercial from Progressive here, which is incredibly annoying, by the way.
It was funny the first six times, the most recent 706 times.
All right, there, down, coming up here for Atlanta as huddling up.
Yeah, yeah, there's Ryan Morris, who I've already ripped into a long enough for being this early in the game.
Matt Ryan all over the backfield here as only three guys up on the D line for Carolina, and there is a stoppage and time out for the Carolina Panthers.
I saw something, and so did they.
I believe Julio was one on one again.
That would be Matt Rule gonna be burning his first time out of the day. The mat rule.
The, um first year ahead coach.
Former Baylor head coach, obviously three and four in his young career.
By the way, Carolina.
Interesting thing about their schedule.
This is Obviously it's Week eight is their eighth game that none of the Bible yet, but through eight games, this is their fourth in the division.
So for their six divisional games coming in the first eight games of their season, very I mean, it's not, like, insanely rare anything.
But I found it interesting that Carolinas had that many this early on.
I don't think they're the only team that's like that, though, but this is an interesting note.
Um, for third down in 10.
Now, coming up this time for real.
I think for Atlanta trips out to the far side of your screen and there's gonna be a jump there, I believe, and Brian Burns.
I thought Brian Burns jump, but they're celebrating like it was a false start and Atlanta's backing up. So it will be.
And there's the call that's gonna be on a Matthews, then.
I mean, Kayla McGary.
Sorry, Hayley McGary.
I thought I thought Brian Burns jumped in.
Yeah, definitely not.
It was Kayla McGary.
And then I get third down of 15 Atlanta showing everybody putting on a perfect display of how to destroy a drive.
By the way, this is textbook destroying.
A drive by the Falcons says they're an expert at doing things bad.
Lynn punching themselves in the foot.
Just ask the Patriots.
Uh, now inside the Carolina 46 Matt Ryan has all day. You'll throw it deep.
Caught first down. Calvin Ridley.
It's a good, though, and the ball came out late.
It was picked up, but none of that will count.
It's gonna be a first down cabin really meant to catch. It was taken down.
No fumble, Yes, catch.
Great throw their fitting in the zone.
Dante Jackson was in coverage that time when Calvin Ridley and that was a big time throw by Ryan.
The 2016 NFL Most Valuable player here is Brian Hill.
Up the sideline, I look down and see the play.
When he picked up a first down.
That is the backup running back Brian Hill.
Traders for Atlanta, there is a ton.
Is trade deadline coming up? This upcoming Tuesday is the NFL trade deadline.
I'm suing my Baltimore right.
Has been a pretty nice trade for Janek and got away 3.
The first quarter Carolina stacking the box big time.
It's sort of Falcons Onley, Matt.
Only Julio Jones and Cameron who are not up close and they're gonna throw in the end zone.
Julio Jones complete.
And yeah, he throughout the Julio and really was open.
Yeah, they're talking about as well.
Calvin Ridley was wide open.
Matt Ryan made a very bad decision.
And yeah, that was a terrible decision by Matt Ryan.
I saw it buck solid.
We all saw it. Calvin Ridley.
Well, everyone, except from that line, of course.
Um, Second down in 10.
27 to go in the first quarter.
73 Carolina lead nine places to play dry.
Sorry, Met Ryan and escape.
The pressure is going to roll out well for over the end zone.
Tough catching, complete good defense there by Troy Pride trying to find Julio in the end zone.
That'll bring up third down and 10 again.
That was a great defensive play there by Carolina.
Atlanta also got away with a little bit of a hold, I thought, and yeah, they definitely did.
As Julio he got his hands on.
It was a It was a tough catch for him to make, but it was one that he could have made.
But tough catch.
Still almost caught it. And it's raining.
So give him a pass, Especially something I'm going to play.
Three receivers close here for Atlanta.
No sorry. Out wide for Atlanta.
Here is Matt Ryan.
He's going to step up and down he goes.
Now you do kick the field goal.
Atlanta That was the first sack of the season for him.
I didn't see who it was, but I heard Bucks saves the first sack of the year by him. Let's see who it was.
Um, and Troy Pride kind of got a little bit of a hold.
No, not over there.
16 Youngjun Koo, This time an actual smart field goal attempt.
Don't don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure that would be the shortest field goal from the entire season.
Coups kick is up in good.
I'll be from 36.
I'm sorry, 37 that'll make it 7 to 6.
Carolina to 36 to go in the first quarter on Thursday and football the next network.
All right, before we go to commercial.
But I'll tell you got that sack because I really would like to know.
I'm sure you guys do, too.
Okay, let's see who got that sack, because I do not know it.
Oh, looks like it's gonna be raining in Carolina.
Apparently, it's a big time rain and I would say about thunder or anything.
Obviously, it's just rain.
If it's thundering and lightning will be in for a lot of the weather delay, which is never fun.
All right there.
Where is it? Where? Like, where the box score? Why can't I find the box score? Why is it not like right there.
Okay, let's go to another company.
Alright, Um, Carolina up by one, we'll see what happens.
Talking the NFC South Michael Thomas, who has not played since week one.
He returned to practice today.
Could making his debut this Sunday.
All right, looking, bouncer, I'll take out the second technical commercial break.
That sack was made by F a O daba, the African player.
I believe that in Nigeria I want to say, um, third year player.
Anyway, we will be back.
You're watching a film. Next demographic.
This We're back here on the next network.
Scoring a flag down the kickoff.
Um, but here is gonna be returned out of bounds at the old little of later hit there.
That'll be calling. That will be so. I saw two penalties.
Eso one of the kick was going.
Then that's gonna be a late hit there on Smith, Keith Smith.
But in a kickoff, there was something as well.
So we'll see what this is, Sean Hockey League are if we're gonna get the call from him here, they're talking it out here, you know, okay? Yeah, you go.
So there was a All right, So two penalties there on Atlanta, and that'll be a first one was not enforced.
The second one waas the first would've been the first one was enforced.
They would have to read you the kick decided not to.
So I will be a 15 yard penalty and nearly the same impact of a kick out of bounds, which would be in the 40.
They're gonna have 37.
It was kind of close to it, but they're actually backing up the spot.
Oh, no, they just weren't already.
The refs were not.
And now we're gonna get the huddle up here for Can I want to 31 to go in first quarter on the next network? I'm Josh Berman.

The next Underscore network. Teddy Bridgewater.
In this game, he has not followed us, but he should two for 13 16 yards in this game.
He'll throw it deep.
Up in the silent Robby Anderson Make the catch, and he's got a lot more Rube Robby Anderson across about 40.
There was a flag down as he escaped one guy.
Yeah, I'll be I came into the secondary as he was being wrapped up.
Then he kept going.
We'll see what the flag is right now.
And we all hold on Atlanta, which will be declined.
And that will be the same type of penalty.
On the All right.
And it's gonna be a give to my Davis escape one, but not two and down.
He goes for a big time.
Lost right there.
It was Deon Jones who led the pursuit.
Everybody else came in.
It was a party behind the line of scrimmage for the Falcons run defense.
Have been a lot of parties for the Falcons defense period as well.
The Falcons is a team to be a, uh, correct.
Couldn't talk down in the Y anyway.
Um, see what happens.
14 to come up here for the Carolina Panthers.
Teddy Bridgewater in the gun.
Mike Davis back once again.
Anderson more split out and delayed handoff to Mike Davis, who will get the lost yardage back.
And I think one extra to make it third down and nine ish, I want to say, as Curtis Samuel there came in motion, Alex are made a full back.
That was the plan that got wrapped up, by the way, what? I'm talking about the same emotion as another.
That work they're gonna nine, is what's coming up here.
Grady, Jared A guy who I you guys longtime viewers here? No, I've liked for a long time.
I've given him a lot of I'm talking about.
I'm a good Matt here.
I think he's very underrated, and he has been very good for a long time over there in three. ***ual 51.
By the way, um, which tie a Super Bowl record third down and nine coming up for the counter.
Panthers under a minute to go in the first quarter up by one Bridgewater pressure coming, and he will not be able to evade that.
Alright, so that's for you. A little economy.
Isaiah Oliver's Who it waas coming in on there? Yeah, for a Louis Kahn, I say Oliver, both gonna come in there and yeah, and Falcon said heavy bullets.
They were just not able to protect all those.
Matt Paris gave up a little kinds. They gave up.
I say Oliver, and 4th and 21.
This will be our eight seconds of the first quarter.
We'll see if they get it off in time.
But as the first quarter is, either about to expire or well, after this plays over and everybody this quarter is over.
So the 1st 2nd quarter will be our first punch of the day.
76 Carolina There.
Punch comes up right after this.
Talking about here.
How Julio Jones, back in 2016 joined the very, very exclusive 300 yard receiving club.
Very few receivers ever done actually gonna pull up.
How many done it? But I I know it's less than panel tell you that much.
I think it's like six or seven.
Julio Jones today is 85 20 yards.
The Carolina Panthers is a team of 68.
Six have done it 300 yards receiving games and most recently, having six times as Jim Benton did it in 1945 with 203 yards I'll tell you about the other one in the second. Here's the play.
Matt Ryan under center.
Gonna come in motion.
Here is a You know, the play fake to Brian Hill.
He's gonna look at Hill now I'm gonna throw it deep and intercepted.
That is Dante Jackson who will take it in on the sideline of the Great Dragon both feet in and Carolina will take over and a big time.
Missed a quick bye.
A bad overthrowing of my cabin. Really? All right.
Now the other three of your passing games.
Yeah, well, first of all, I'm great catch by Dante Jackson Jim Benton, Tenn.
Gets during three yards.
Wanna do it against the Lions as a member of the Cleveland Rams? 1945? Um, another player to do it.
What their player to do.
It was Cloyd Buck Hoist.
Close box did it against the Baltimore Colts in 1950.
Remember the joint lines.
12 gauges for 302 yards.
Stefan Page did it.
Eight catches Traitor nine yards against the San Diego Chargers in 1985 as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs and the single game of receiving yards.
Leader Willie Flipper Anderson, 15 catches, 336 yards.
That is the record he did against the New Orleans Saints number.
The L A Rams on negative nine.
Is that handoff there on DPI jaywalkers in the game of receiver, By the way, That's interesting, then a play they've ran before.
I've never seen them do that. At least put it that way.
All right, back.
Actually, that's very right.
Calvin Johnson did it in 329 yards back in 2013.
And then Julio Jones did it with exactly 300 back in 2016 we thought about four.
All right, here's a handoff to Robby Anderson.
Start to hand off to Mike Davis.
I don't know why I thought Robbie didn't have that, Paul.
Um Anyway, Mike Davis picked up a gain of one or two.
Bring bring up third down and 32 or three, actually.
Okay, here is Bridgewater, who is in the gun.
Max begs Bridgewater to pass the ball here on third, down to, and the formation tells me that they, especially on the fact that you get the front, they will.
They will dump it off here to Curtis Samuel, who lined up in it running back into the catch, should get the first down.
And, yeah, she's gonna give it to him.
Carolina, there's your past.
A little dumb with Kurt Salmon. About three yards.
It wasn't much, but it was a nice place. Curtis Samuel.
There was a nice job by him.
He's leading the backfield twice, once for a rushing touchdown, this one for a clutch first down catch from backfield.
He has 15 catches on third down this year.
Curtis Samuel. That's more than any other receiver in the league.
Great third down receiver Curtis Samuel.
The great gadget players.
Well for Carolina.
First down for the Panthers right now, trying to move down the field.
I mean, there have been in the field inside the Atlanta 29 it's gonna be a flea flicker.
It is caught. Touchdown.
How about that? A flea flicker.
Mike Davis got it.
He flipped it back toe. Bridgewater.
Bridgewater threw it deep to Curtis Samuel.
What a play. Carolina.
Wow! Great throw.
Great play designer by Matt Rule completely had it full with the Falcons defense and then Bridgewater through a dot.
But let's focus here on the defense of front of the Falcons.
Almost every single player the Falcons defensive front fell for that handoff.
Flea flicker worked to perfection.
Here's the extra point for Slide.
Wow, what a play call right there as that extra point is up in good one of the oldest trick plays in the book, The Flea flicker 14 to 6 Carolina lead.
That was phenomenal, by the way, for those who don't know where that flea flicker originated.
Do you guys know? Well, originated, um, in Illinois, but at the University of Illinois.
But I'll tell you that it was made really big by the Baltimore Colts in the NFL level.
The team that really using a ton was the Baltimore Colts.
And there you go.
Uh, that's why I know that, but 14 to 6 Carolina lead.
You're watching a film, except we're back Correct.
Carolina Curtis Samuel has been the big player for Carolina so far.
Slide lining up for the kickoff.
And here it comes.
Yeah, little false start by me and then I'll stay on the ends in touch back.
Oh, step number two for the Falcons after Matt Ryan started last mission with interception.
So let's see what Matt Ryan and do try and redeem himself.
It's from here Next week.
Once again, if you are not following us orders on all of our social use pictures that subscribe to our YouTube, the next network of chapters on sportscast next network.

Matt Ryan under center seven for 1119 yards and a pick so far down by eight.
And it's a little pitched out too girly.
Who will start Brian Hill, who will gain about seven and the official went down.
He seems to be okay.
Your field judge went down.
He is all right.
Oh, down goes official, man.
It's again to lighting up right in the I formation should be a run up the middle.
Let's see if I'm right.
Yep, right in the middle.
Brian Hale got it first down for a gain of about four.
He Smith a fullback putting a great blonde right there with the fullbacks begin to come back here in the NFL in these last couple of years.
The NFL Falcon to move the ball down the field very well today, but only have six points to show for it.
Thanks to Ryan Morris is genius decision that is Thio field goal from the two yard line.
Um, Russell Gauge coming in motion.
Throw wide open Hayvenhurst.
Matt Ryan did not throw a very good ball there, but hey, Nurse had a just make a great catch.
Become a first down.
Should have been for a lot more, though.
I mean, Hayden Hurst up the scene at the tight end.
Great route, thereby him bag Throw by him.
He should have hit that throw by Matt Ryan Should hit Hurston Stride.
Could have got a lot more, but still first down, it's still a nice play for Atlanta is Hurst will come in motion and there is a stoppage of play and a challenge will be thrown in that rule.
Trying is they caught it.
I think he clearly did. Let's see.
Yeah, he caught that.
Oh, No, he didn't.
Great challenge there by that rule.
I didn't see that, but yeah, no, He dropped it right there.
He did, and, yeah, it was a bad bubba.
Matt Ryan told you should hit him in stride.
Not already had more.
You know, I would have not only would have gotten more yards, he actually made the catch because apparently he didn't.
Okay, Great job there by the rookie head coach Matt Rule.
He's gonna win that challenge list.
You should never know.
But I'm gonna assume he really should.
Okay, by the way, for those who that missed or didn't hear, um, breaking news out of the college football world is Clemson cornerback traffic.
Florence has tested positive for Cove in 19 mild symptoms.
So he seems to be all right, which is good, but obviously, he will not be a collapse in the next 10 days.
We'll see what happens.
There will keep, obviously keep keep hearing next week for that.
6 is currently a challenge going on that the Panthers will win and we'll be back when they win the challenge.
Dean, blend here.
I'm gonna talk about? No, it's not.
Look right there.
The ball hits the ground.
That's not a catch.
They gave it to him first down.
What? Okay, well, I disagree strongly.
Brian Hill Param in that one incomplete right through the hands of the dump off second.
And that is ridiculous.
That was a catch.
Second downtown coming up here for the Falcons A for 1337 yards in a picked on the day for Matty ice.
Now, it was like in the background.
I split out wide, leaving obviously Ryan all over the backfield.
He's not lonely, though. Don't worry.
Past midfield from 45 Ryan gauges open down low.
He's gonna throw underneath to Hayden.
Her is gonna pick up again about Thorn.
They're brought in by shot.
Thompson third down.
A medium gonna come up here for the Panthers.
The Falcons? Sorry.
They're not sure, Actually, they're going to know I made two mistakes in the span of five seconds about that.
Um Anyway, they're down two coming up one for three on third down. Tonight.
An average of 30.
5 yards, though.
On those third down, this was only two yards.
So they should get it.
Hopefully for them.
It's a handoff, and it's a first down.
That is the first carry today.
For who are you? Who? Who are you? Let me look you up.
I don't know you.
Kadre or Quadri Because there's gonna use that is it? I'm gonna go with Kadre.
Allyson Allyson! What was calm? Allyson? Um picking up a first down right there, Right? Uh huh.
All right, Here's a handoff pitch to Brian Hill making one man missing all get back to the line of scrimmage.
Shaq Thompson took him down as Tiger White as well.
Second down and nine coming up.
5 to go in this first of action.
Atlanta down by eight.
This court touched down here.
Don't look for them to forgo for two.
But I'll tell you this personally, I would, but I'd be shocked if they actually do.
Personally, though, I would go for two.
So far today they found in the past 15 times, ran a 10 years, passed for 16 and it's caught by Calvin Ridley inside the red zone in the 14 Falcons inside the red zone.
Which, of course, means they're gonna have to settle for a field goal.
Because that's what the Falcons dio Kevin readily still down and hurt.
Nice little slant Rouch by Calvin Ridley, which, of course, Saints fans go.
Hey, we know about those and Twitter goes, that me.
Twitter is not going to be in the rap because it was apparently an easy wrapped around them anyway.
There's still down and pay.
I don't know what they're looking at here, but nice play, though.
And is it his foot? I think it is.
And, well, let us heal.
And obviously, that's never good.
A hell ish injury.
We know what happens.
Obviously, it doesn't seem it does not seem that serious, but I should write anymore.
So I'm gonna come out here for Atlanta, though.
Nine minutes to go in the second quarter, Calvin Ridley down and injured, hopefully is. Okay.
We're back. Next network.
Calvin Ridley on the sideline on a knee.
Hopefully, he's all right back inside the red zone there at the 14 that Ryan 10 or 1564 yards and pick already today, he has been like some of the air later in passing yards.
Well, actually hasn't really played that well.
Actually, I'm talking about He has not had a very good game, but the league leader in passing yards is gonna be the leader in passing yards next week.
Is passing yards wise? He has been phenomenal, but he's missed a couple and obviously that really bad enough.
That one Todd Gurley was in the stationary bike is Brian Hamlin.
Allyson have been in the game.
Is Dr Haven't seen any Todd Gurley almost possession and Christian depend telling us why. It's interesting.
Second nine coming up.
They've been in the red zone twice today. This is number three.
They've had two field goals.
See if it's time to get to the end zone.
Gauge in motion, Matt Ryan running and he's gonna take on the run with them.
Matt Ryan? Is he in? I think he is.
He is touchdown Atlanta Matt Ryan on the rushing touchdown, and that will make it 12 14 12.
I'm going for two here.
Let's see if Ryan Morris agrees with me.
I don't think he will in fact, I'd be surprised if he does.
And yeah, he won't.
They're gonna pick the extra point.
Young Yoku will try and make it 14.
Well, as matter I had a corner slipped, he would have got him around.
I around the one of the two, but corner just completely slipped in pursuit.
The extra points I've been good.
It's gonna be 14 to 13 now with 802 to go in the second.
But if someone so far time another commercial break you're watching Thursday Night Football next network were background.
Calvin Ridley limped off the field as that could offer the touch back, by the way.
But, you know, let's take a look here.
This touchdown again as Julio Jones was the target, he was covered perfectly.
That was not a designed run.
He scored a great job in my Matt Ryan the opposite of a mobile quarterback, for sure, but integrate play right there to get to the end zone as Kabir lays in the locker room with a foot injury.
By the way, Bridgewater five or 6 75 yards and a touchdown man emotion.
There was Robby Anderson, Bridgewater Energy Throat has got a man there that is mannered, and he got a big time play there again of about 15 16.
Bridgewater got popped as he threw it.
A great throw, thereby.
Teddy Bridgewater been very impressive this season to see what he's done as he got popped, thereby Deon Jones, but he still delivered a nice third of manner to.
He did a great job, really capitalizing on that play for a first down, All right.
Bridgewater has been under pressure eight times already has only been sacked once, though.
Here's another hand at the Curtis Samuel.
Samuel will get about nine.
Curtis Samuel is a beast of a running back.
He's a great running back, but he's also obviously a very solid receiver as well.
So, you know no one gonna come up here for Carolina.
21 yards of the ground, 32 on the air, two touchdowns.
The 53 total yards, two touchdowns.
Nearly divided up perfectly.
Even. That's incredible.
Bridgewater in the gun as Falcons, and they're gonna send a heavy blitz here, and they're gonna hand it off to my Davis and he's gonna pick up my first down as Neil wrapped him up.
But he reached forward a little bit there, pick up a first down.
My little could be a little bit of a read option, by the way, obviously handed off to my David, but I think that was a read option.
Now I'm gonna come back into the game.
Davis as well is in the game.
I assume that I mean that we will see a split out.
Why, to Curtis Samuel is time, and we will.
Samuel lined up in the slot here as man in motion here for Carolina.
Samuel one on one here in the slot, watching him, bridge wiring coming up, talk a little bit, play clock at one.
He's gonna have to burn a time out. Good job by Bridgewater.
And with that Carolina Panthers, I believe.
And yeah, Carolina was 603 to go in the first half.
Mentioned Atlanta's roundabouts.
Carolina, they are out of time outs now.
Not that the Thunderdome, the W W we all new tomorrow at eight.
Not on the next network.
I don't watch you watch Fox.
We're not broadcasting that.
Sorry, I'm not even all that stuff.
A Pat McAfee tearing up on the next T Shut up.
No challenges either for Carolina as well.
Because of no timeouts.
Nine minutes of time.
Possession for Carolina.
20 place, 209 yards, 14 minutes Time possession for Atlanta, but Panthers one on top by one with 63 to go in the first half.
Carolina also will get the ball to start at least third where Michael probably will be joining me.
Everything alright, Bridgewater Davis will switch to the other side.
Play clock a three.
Now I'm David on the other side.
Snap it there, Ugo Bridgewater.
There's gonna be a sprint pass running out of time.
It's caught a great throw and a great catch.
Robby Anderson on the governor's been a little quiet.
Only a second catch so far. There have a lot of yards, either.
Nice play there.
Great catch on the free agent acquisition.
Um, pair up there.
Bridgewater and Anderson to free agent acquisitions to a huge part of the Carolina Panthers.
Offense is here.
A spokeswoman now, seven for 800 yards on the dot as well as the touchdown.
No picks as well.
You only one receiver split out here.
I believe that is D. J.
And it's a handle of talking. Mike Davis.
Davis will gain a couple.
There goes from 2nd, 6th, 3rd down of four.
Now, Carolina has been very impressive.
Some of this year. They're three and four now.
The NFC being as competitive as it is fall into four and four.
You are in serious trouble when I'm sorry.
Following 23 and five.
You're in serious trouble when four and four guys catching up to do.
But you're still in the NFC being this good.
Even with the extra playoff spot NFC is. That's good.
Yeah, you are in serious, serious trouble.
There are down to three.
Gonna come up here with the Panthers under five to go in the first half.
Near the backfield here is Curtis Samuel, man.
They hand out to Curtis Samuel again.
We're gonna pop by Grady Jarrett and Dante Fowler.
Well, I believe was in there once it was Fowler.
Looked like Fowler.
Dante Fowler delayed a hit gray hair wrap him up.
Fowler really wrapped him up fourth down and won.
The Panthers are gonna go for it because they should.
By the way, Calvin Bradley.
This is questionable to return with an ankle injury.
One that looked like a read option again.
By the way, I think Bridge wanted me the wrong way, giving it to him.
Which one? I should have kept it and ran for 1st.
This year, I assume they're gonna snap in your Falcons stacking the box and they are gonna snap it and it's in another read off just at Bridgewater will keep it being chased.
Bridge. We're trying the most. But you can't.
That'll be a stop and a turnover.
Atlanta will take over.
Louis Kahn, on the big time Play right there in Atlanta will take over.
Bridgewater out. Same players.
Last time this time, Bridge.
We decided to keep it last time.
He should have kept it and he didn't this time.
Should have handed it off and he didn't and, yeah, mhm.
A little con who's been? He's a third year, third year, and you want to say But either way, whoever I don't know what year he is.
He is really 37 year, 30 or the other.
But he's really, really broken out this year, for Atlanta has been a one of the very few bright spots of this Falcons team.
See Matt Rangel double up to Russell Gauge gauge of some space.
Russell Cage Midfield 46.
Hey, I appreciate it.
I think I'm in basketball, though.
I think he meant basketball because I do not know I do baseball with Michael, but I think he made basketball.
But either way, I appreciate it.
And hey, that's the goal.
Um, Russell games.
They're going across midfield of the 46 3 25 88 passing on to the Panthers, 178 for Atlanta.
Matt Ryan, throwing on the sideline, got a man That's Christian Blake.
3 12 to go clock has stopped Matt Ryan again.
He's league leader in passing yards coming into today and despite not having the greatest day, I mean, I test wise stats wise, he has been phenomenal, nearing 200 yards already in the first half.
All right, Brian Hale, now in the game, checking out on three under three minutes to go inside the Carolina 39.
Here's a hand off the Hill Hill as a first down in a lot more.
Well, he had to stay for a lot more and said he only got a little bit more.
There's a 30 yard line first, and then the less 2.
5 to go in the first half.
Now nearing the two minute warning.
Calvin Ridley questionable with an ankle injury, by the way.
And you want another source literally us.
If you get the reference to the reference, Um 2 20 to go in the first half, handing it off off tackle and he's wrapped up immediately.
Brian Hill Even talking about Announcer Do you Do you have to learn that, you know? No, it was like that was it was weird that, like my voice just naturally sounds like this, like, you know, and asking my friends here that, like, if you don't personally the way I talk on the other way, I talk.
It's really it is the exact same.
It just happens to sound like announcer.
But no, I really didn't, but I am.
I mean Max knows may personally, you know, your maxi in the comments.
You know, this is just the way I talk.
I mean, it just happens only a two minute warning coming up here.
Atlanta trying to get into the end of the take the leave the first time in a while.
You're watching the NFL.
The next network after this Todd girl is still not in the game here.
He hasn't been in the game for a while now.
Two minutes exactly to go.
Who's the bottom screen? One a while now. Never mind. He's not.
Well, does he want I want? I think he is.
Um, but he's looking at me. Getulio.
So, yeah, if Julio is one on one who is one of one that looks like it's a free rusher gonna come in and been pointed out, it's gonna be a catch made there by Dante.
Black Christian Blake.
Dante Jackson was one of coverage.
I mean, 50 to go in the first half.
Their down and medium gonna come up for They're not out short ish medium.
I guess you could say, um, Dante Jackson has been terrible.
That I, by the way, third unit four.
So medium, third, medium pleased by my definition, medium 244 on third down today, the average distance is 9.
7 yards was only four allyson in the game on third down clock is ticking.
I don't mean and a half Ryan under pressure.
He's gonna try and escape is gonna run it again and he's gonna reach. He's gonna close.
I don't know if he got it.
He's very close.
I don't know if they gave it to him or not.
I don't know if I would give it to him or not. It's very close.
I would or wouldn't make that clear.
Um, flag down here.
I think it's Ah, hold places.
That storm I look like I'm gonna guess.
Oh, it's on the defense.
So we gotta for automatic first down, regardless of you got it or not, it's gonna be a defense and holding.
I don't see why they call it on.
Franklin is holding Hayden Hurst and yeah, that's the right call.
First time inside the Carolina 16 13 for 896 yards in a pick so far.
Blake Gonna come in motion, Panther Stacking the box Play action.
Here comes the pressure Ryan and a lot of the end of Julio.
Great defense. Incomplete.
He, John Franklin.
They're making up for it with a nice deflection.
Julio was one on one the whole way and in the safety came in to help knocking it away.
It was Ryan through it a little bit slower than I would have.
I think Ryan probably should have tried to zip it in.
There is a poor decision there by the former M V P.
Matt Ryan and Julio could have had it great demons and knocking away.
Leo could have brought it in.
I will say that.
But now that Ryan should have zipped it.
And if it's Ryan said, Wait a minute touchdown, then it's time to go.
Russell Gauge in motion.
Ryan Gurley's Ope Girls back in the game. He's open. He's sacked.
Either way, who cares? That is Haines.
You wanna play flag down? We're gonna go look at this.
Look at this pressure right here.
Brian Burns got all the attention and Haynes came in.
What a play! What's the flag Well, no penalty.
One minute to go.
Well, then why is the clock stopped? Hold on.
Why is the clock so there's no penalty.
They should have been staying with the Falcons. Already told us.
Um, I know you think I should be gone for The Falcons were thinking, Well, do you think he will be? Um, it depends where they finish.
I'll tell you, like, 13.
You gotta step up and run and it'll be tripped up, but they're inside field goal range.
This time they show you feel all they will, um, young accuser kick a field goal. The Falcons.
Actually, we're gonna burn the stand about two seconds.
Call 23 seconds called time out, or they'll just line up and kicking this time. Spare.
I don't know, Brian Byrnes.
There came in on the easy pressure, and then Ryan escaped and then burn tripping up about a yard field.
Yeah, I think my right should be gone.
Um, not because he's a bad quarterback.
I made that clear here.
I don't think that Ryan is bad.
I think he is a very capable quarterback.
He's a very good quarterback, but it's time.
Move on. They need to start over and rebuild.
And by giving that, you have to get rid of the quarterback.
Matt Ryan, Um, kind of start over.
But if they finish and yeah, there you go there all the time.
About three seconds left.
But if, um, the Falcons finished with a top five pick and assuming Trey, Lance or Justin Fields is sitting there where they are, you take him.
If he's if Justin feels Trey Land and obviously Trevor Lawrence, they're all off the they're all off the board, then you don't need you because there are holding this roster.
Are the quarterback that defense? They definitely do.
You need to get some help in that defense, so I say Yes, but and he should be if they have to.
But if they don't need to get it, if they don't have a situation where they have a quarterback available, they love by all means.
Keep him one more year.
All right, here is Young Hoku as clock expiring the first half trying to get 16 14.
5 36 yarder is up in good, and then I'll do it.
The Panthers with the ball, though at that after the half.
So Michael, by the way, might be joining me was like Probably will be. I don't know why. I wasn't sure, though.
First have. Yeah, you're playing first. I wasn't obvious.
It's that flea flicker touch that occur to Samuel.
Atlanta leads your Washington NFL.
The next step will be right back.
Get out 15 minutes for half to
