Fox Sports Insider host Bill Barnwell and NFL.com columnist Mike Garafolo preview the Week 3 slate for the league’s 16 playoff teams.
Barnwell: I think that the Falcons will have a shot to win the NFC South.
They’ve got to beat Atlanta.
If they can beat the Falcons, they have a decent shot of making the playoffs.
Garafollo: There’s a lot of intrigue around the Panthers.
I’ve been following this team and seeing how they are playing the game.
It’s a team that will have some of the most explosive players in the NFL.
If the Panthers can go to the Super Bowl and make it to the playoffs, then that will be a huge, big deal for the Panthers, for the franchise and for me.
The Falcons are in a great spot right now, as long as they don’t lose to the Panthers on Sunday.
They’ll have a chance to make the playoffs if they can win out in the NFC and make the Super of a year.
They have the No. 1 seed, but that’s the only thing that really matters.
