Stop us if you're heard this: Panthers spot Falcons a lead, then

Apparently, he's also occasionally capable of dropping gimme touchdowns, evidenced by what happened on Sunday. 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.

That's a rare sight.

Add in am ugly Julio Jones drop in the endzone and a Matt Ryan pick and this game was sickening to watch after the first quarter.

The Panthers remain a half-game behind New Orleans (6-2) in the NFC South after the Saints' rout of Tampa Bay on Sunday. Ryan threw an interception to Mike Adams.

Stewart fumbled twice in the first quarter, both forced by Falcons safety Keanu Neal and recovered by Atlanta.

Two Graham Gano field goals stretched the lead to 20-10 in the second half before Tevin Coleman's 19-yard touchdown reception cut Carolina's lead to 20-17 with 3:25 to play.

The Carolina Panthers will get the ball to start the second half. But the series resulted in a three-and-out with a repetitive first-snap handoff to running back Jonathan Stewart, a pass to Funchess over the middle that was broken up in tight coverage and a collapsed pocket that forced quarterback Cam Newton to scramble short of the first down. Ryan was picked off in the second quarter by Adams, who tallied his second interception in as many weeks.

The Falcons, playing in their first divisional game of the season, appeared to have all the momentum early on against the rival Panthers.

Ryan and his offense gouged Carolina early, allowing for a 10-0 scoring run in the first quarter.

Cam Newton scored a touchdown on Sunday that had seemingly everyone talking about it afterward, including Stephen Curry. A big 26-yard pass to Julio Jones on the first play of the drive moved the ball near midfield.
