FBO: Week 14 NFL Upset Watch

Updated: December 6, 2012

Upset Watch: Carolina (+3.5) vs. Atlanta

The Carolina Panthers are 3-9 and a mess, playing out the string until owner Jerry Richardson once again cleans house in the offseason. The Atlanta Falcons are 11-1 and cruising to a likely top seed in the NFC playoffs. So the idea that Carolina has a good chance to upset Atlanta this week probably sounds a bit absurd. Our numbers disagree.

To see why the Panthers are a good bet to beat the Falcons, plus the top upset in terms of covering the spread, you must be an ESPN Insider. Sign up today!
