For the first time this season, the Atlanta Falcons lost a game that wasnt even close.
While the odds still favor the Falcons to win home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, the task looks a little more difficult after a 30-20 loss at Carolina in which they were thoroughly spanked.

It's one loss.
And in the eyes of the Atlanta Falcons, it's certainly not time to panic.
Their 30-20 defeat Sunday came at the hands of the Carolina Panthers, a team that had won just three games. And granted, the Falcons were dominated for 2 1/2 quarters, falling behind 23-0 at one point. But players insist it won't take long to put the loss to their Interstate-85...
Atlanta Falcons (11-1) at Carolina Panthers (3-9)

However, there aren’t any really good ones in play here, except this. Teams are 49-37 ATS as home favorites after a loss as road...

Falcons head coach Mike Smith hinted at the notion that Asante Samuel may not end up playing against the Panthers on Sunday, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
He was only able to play three plays, so we are going to definitely be very cautious and make sure hes ready to go, said Smith. He wants to be out there playing, I know that, but we want to make sure he gets cleared...
