Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Joe Mixon’s injury opens the door for Bernard to put a stranglehold on starter’s reps for at least two weeks. Coleman is also filling in for an injured starter, so Bernard — while not as electrifying as Coleman — has a chance to get a lot of looks in both the passing and running games.

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Panthers coach Ron Rivera is still fuming about his team's performance, saying he won't tolerate laziness on defense following his team's 31-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Carolina's eighth-year head coach was upset after watching his normally stingy defense allow Matt Ryan and the Falcons to roll up 442 yards on offense Sunday and score on five of their first seven possessions. The Falcons, playing without starting running back Devonta Freeman, ran for 170 yards and Ryan completed 23 of 28 passes for 272 yards and combined for four TDs.

Carolina's first-round pick had the first catch - and touchdown - of his fledgling NFL career when he hauled in a 51-yard scoring pass from Cam Newton with just over 2 minutes remaining Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Ryan threw a pair of scoring passes, which wasn't all that unusual, and also ran for two touchdowns for the first time in his career, leading the Atlanta Falcons to a 31-24 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. ''I can't remember the last time I had two TDs,'' Ryan said with a smile.

The Atlanta Falcons knew they weren't going to have running back Devonta Freeman on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers because of a lingering knee injury, but he might not be back for a few weeks beyond that, according to an ESPN report.
