The Carolina Panthers couldn't have started much worse on a dreary day at Bank of America Stadium.
Carolina got the ball first and -- on its first play from scrimmage -- Jonathan Stewart fumbled the ball away.
Atlanta took only 3 plays to score from the Panther 29 after that -- a 9-yard pass, a 16-yard run from Michael Turner and a 4-yard pass from Matt Ryan to Tony Gonzalez for the score.
After 85 seconds, the Panthers were down, 7-0.
At least not too many people saw it in person -- the stands look to be about 1/3 full.
