CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Matt Ryan threw for 268 yards and a touchdown, Matt Bryant added four field goals and the Atlanta Falcons moved into a tie for first place in the lowly NFC South with a 19-17 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
    
Bryant's 44-yard field goal with 2:08 left put Atlanta ahead for good, and the Falcons withstood a late Carolina rally.
    
Carolina's Graham Gano missed a 46-yard field goal try with 1:27 remaining and had a 63-yarder blocked as time expired.
    
The Falcons (4-6) moved into a tie with New Orleans for the division lead after the Saints lost at home to Cincinnati 27-10.
    
Cam Newton overcame two early interceptions to throw for 292 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns, but it wasn't enough for the Panthers (3-6-1), who have lost five straight.
