CHARLOTTE, N.C. Joey Harrington took the hit. Alge Crumpler did the rest.

Just before he was drilled to the turf, Harrington found Crumpler over the middle for a 30-yard touchdown with 20 seconds left to give the Atlanta Falcons a win over the Carolina Panthers.

Crumpler, who returned after missing the previous two games with ankle and knee injuries, caught the short pass over the middle and sliced between safeties Chris Harris and Quinton Teal for the score. Harrington watched from his back after being hit by Thomas Davis, then limped off the field as the Falcons won their second straight game.

The late score ruined the return of 43-year-old Vinny Testaverde, who couldn't lead the Panthers to the end zone.
