What to Know
The Carolina Panthers will be returning home after a two-game road trip. They will take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Carolina came up short against the Dallas Cowboys last week, falling 36-28. Despite the loss, the Panthers had strong showings from QB Sam Darnold, who passed for two TDs and 301 yards on 39 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 35 yards, and WR D.J. Moore, who was on the other end of those TDs and tacked on 113 yards receiving. Darnold ended up with a passer rating of 138.20.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia came up short against the Kansas City Chiefs last week, falling 42-30. A silver lining for Philadelphia was the play of QB Jalen Hurts, who passed for two TDs and 387 yards on 48 attempts in addition to picking up 47 yards on the ground. Hurts ended up with a passer rating of 148.10.
Special teams collected 12 points for Philadelphia. K Jake Elliott delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Carolina going off at just a 3-point favorite. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The Panthers are now 3-1 while the Eagles sit at a mirror-image 1-3. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Carolina enters the game with only 181.3 passing yards allowed per game on average, good for second best in the league. Less enviably, Philadelphia is stumbling into the matchup with the most rushing yards allowed per game in the NFL, having given up 150.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Philadelphia.
