See how the Carolina Panthers offense performed against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The Carolina Panthers offense displayed signs of life but was ultimately hampered by too many mistakes and a defensive let down. Leaning on their counterparts for a lot of the team’s success last week, the Panthers showed it will take both units contributing to win games this season.

An early scoring drive put Carolina on top but was almost immediately matched as the two teams traded scores until just before the half. The Panthers offense stalled just under the two-minute warning after allowing a sack and the roughly 90-seconds left were enough for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to orchestrate a touchdown drive despite being pinned back to their own 15-yard line.

Down two scores at two different times in the second half, the Panthers offense did enough to pull within one but could never capitalize on any ensuing possession. Carolina had an almost identical situation to Atlanta from the first-half to end the game but couldn’t get into the end zone.

Continue to see how each offensive unit graded out after a disappointing 31-24 loss to NFC South divisional rival, the Atlanta Falcons.
