The Atlanta Falcons are the NFC South division champs and the Carolina Panthers are out of the playoff race, but both will clash in week 14 for what still figures to be an entertaining NFC South battle. Remember these two teams really don't like each other so there will be plenty of hitting and smack talk worth watching.
Even better this match-up comes in as the fourth cheapest home game for Carolina. Prices have also fallen 10% this week to bring the game average for Panthers vs Falcons tickets down to $157/seat, 11% below the average price of Carolina Panthers tickets this season.
That said, this game is still 12% more expensive than when these two teams met in Carolina last year, and due to Cam Newton’s presence (largely), is up an insane 169% from the Jimmy Clausen days of 2010.
With a get-in price of just $31 per seat, there are plenty of great deals still available.
There aren't any playoff implications here, but the once Super Bowl aspiring Panthers will still fight hard in an effort to build confidence for 2013, while the Falcons will still strive for the number one seed and home field advantage. In fact, with a week 14 win, the Falcons are one step closer to doing exactly that.
On the flip-side, Carolina has been getting it’s act together the past few weeks, and seems to be much more balanced on both sides of the ball. Losing to Kansas City was a back-breaker last week, but this team still has the talent to turn around and top the Falcons - especially since we have seen them come close to doing so before earlier this year.
