Carolina (3-4) at Atlanta (2-6) Time: 1 p.m. Line: Panthers by 3. Vs. spread: Panthers 4-3; Falcons 4-4. Series: Falcons lead 6-5. Last meeting: Falcons won, 15-10, on Sept. 17, 2000, at Carolina. Outlook: These are easily two of the most disappointing teams at the halfway point, mainly because of the lack of defense. The Falcons give up 389.1 yards a game, and the Reggie White experiment in Carolina has been a disappointment. The one positive for the Panthers has been QB Steve Beuerlein, who constantly proves not just how solid a thrower he is, but also how tough he can be. Notable: Panthers have outscored opponents 108-50 in the first half.

Even as Steve Zucker mapped travel plans yesterday for newly minted free agent Eric Swann, he tossed out a lifeline to Baltimore. The Ravens, Zucker said, are one of the teams on Swann's radar screen. "He wants to go to a contender," said Zucker, Swann's Chicago-based agent. "He would like to play on the eastern seaboard. And he lives in Reston, Va. He built a home there last year. "Baltimore would be on his list." It's a short list. One day after the veteran defensive tackle was cut by the Arizona Cardinals in a long-rumored salary-cap move, Swann visited the Carolina Panthers.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- There was some snickering -- OK, outright laughter -- when the Phoenix Cardinals selected Eric Swann with the sixth pick in this year's NFL draft.Leave it to the Cardinals, people said. Only they would be dumb enough to blow a high first-round pick on a defensive tackle who never had played college football. A sandlotter, for crying out loud.The laughter grew louder when the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Swann injured his knee in minicamp and underwent the first of two arthroscopic repairs.

Arizona (3-4) at Detroit (2-5)Time: 1: 01 p.m.Line: Lions by 6.Vs. spread: Cardinals 3-4; Lions 2-5.Outlook: Take a team nearly devoid of offense and take away its best defensive player and you've got a mess. You also have the Cardinals, who are still waiting for QB Jake Plummer to become a star and are without Pro Bowl DT Eric Swann, out indefinitely after knee surgery. Plummer, who has been sacked 25 times and has thrown 11 interceptions, isn't going to outscore anyone working behind his tissue-paper line.
