The Atlanta Falcons insist Matt Ryan isn’t struggling despite his poor numbers over the last three games. The Carolina Panthers appear to be happy just to see Jack Delhomme avoiding more mistakes. The NFC South rivals meet for the second time this season Sunday with both clubs facing questions about their quarterbacks. Atlanta (5-3) is playing the first of two straight games on the road, where it is 1-3 with two straight losses. Ryan threw five interceptions in his last two road games. Ryan, who led the Falcons to 11 wins and a playoff spot as a rookie last season, had four touchdowns, six interceptions and a 54.5 completion percentage in his last three games.

Both teams are taking the pressure off their quarterbacks by running the ball well. Michael Turner gained 166 yards and scored two touchdowns last week for Atlanta, six days after he gained 150 yards on 20 carries in a 35-27 loss at New Orleans. Turner has scored in seven straight games and leads the NFC with 10 rushing touchdowns. The Falcons’ beleaguered run defense may be tasked with slowing down a resurgent DeAngelo Williams, who posted an NFL-high 548 rushing yards over the last four weeks. Atlanta ranks 24th against the run, and Williams had 79 yards on 16 carries in a 28-20 road defeat to the Falcons on Sept. 20. Williams, though, is questionable after sitting out practice Friday for the second time in three days. The Falcons’ defense features the NFL’s leading tackler in middle linebacker Curtis Lofton with 84, but Atlanta yielded 397 yards on the ground in the last three games. Delhomme had 10 touchdowns and three interceptions in his last seven games against the Falcons, going 25 for 41 for 308 yards and one TD and three interceptions in the September meeting. Ryan also turned in one of his most efficient performances in that game, completing 21 of 27 passes for three touchdowns, one interception and 220 yards. Atlanta won six of its last nine games in Charlotte, falling 24-9 in last year’s visit as Delhomme threw for 294 yards, two scores and no interceptions.
