Panthers Still Playing With Something To Prove With Eagles In Town For Sunday Night Football Showdown

Posted by on 10/23/2015 1:03:48 AM

The Carolina Panthers are coming off a statement win over the Seattle Seahawks that was easily the most impressive of their perfect 5-0 start to this season. They might have to duplicate that effort in order to get to 6-0 in Week 7. The Panthers will play under the bright lights when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football this week and it will be a tale of two teams that have really hit their stride over the past couple of games. Carolina has won five straight including a 27-23 win over Seattle to get to 5-0 while Philadelphia has won back-to-back games for the first time this season after a 27-7 win over the New York Giants. Something will have to give when these teams clash on Sunday night and the difference could be a star quarterback that is being talked about a lot of late as a possible MVP candidate.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Carolina Panthers

Sunday October 25, 2015 – 8:30 PM ET

NFL Betting Line: Carolina -3

The biggest question mark for the Panthers heading in to this season was who would quarterback Cam Newton throw the ball to after losing star receiver Kelvin Benjamin for the season to a torn ACL. Tight end Greg Olsen and veteran Ted Ginn Jr. have done their best to pick up the slack so far but it is Newton who has taken the offense on his back and delivered an MVP performance while leading Carolina to five straight wins. Newton has thrown for 1,078 yards and eight touchdowns compared to four interceptions while also running for 225 yards and an additional three scores. Newton still has the big arm to make all of the throws but he has shown a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the first down when his receivers have left him down and he is easily the biggest reason the Panthers are still perfect. Newton’s ability to adjust combined with a steady dose of Jonathan Stewart in the run game should help keep the Philadelphia defense off balance in this one and finding that perfect balance on offense will be crucial in order to keep the Eagles pass rush at bay. Philadelphia’s defense was a big reason they managed to pull out the lopsided win over New York last week but their offense still has a lot of work to do beginning with quarterback Sam Bradford. Bradford completed 24-of-38 pass attempts for 280 yards and a touchdown against the Giants but he also had three interceptions and his nine picks on the year match his total touchdowns. Carolina’s defense did an excellent job keeping Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense off balance last week and should be able to pressure Bradford and make him uncomfortable in the pocket. Turnovers will also be key and if the Panthers can win that battle they should have no problem winning this game and pushing their perfect start to 6-0 with their MVP Newton leading the way.

Pick: Carolina-3

Total: 46
