Eagles Looking to Quiet the Panthers on TNF

Cam Newton has found the fountain of youth! Hold up, he is in his youth. As time marches on in this ever unpredictable and crazy NFL season, Newton gets better and better. At 28 years of age, Newton finds himself squarely in his football prime and he is quite clearly making the most of it. With 1237 yards on the season, 8 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, he is clearly telling his team that he wants to win and wants to continue being looked at as the leader going forward.

Newton vs. Wentz makes for an interesting props matchup. Check out your favorite online sportsbook for odds and all the latest lines.

Who Gets The Victory?

The Eagles will win this game if:

If the Eagles can find a consistent running game and find first downs, they will not only cover the -3, they will run roughshod over that Panthers at home and send the home-crowd to the parking lot early. It really is this simple. Look for the total in this game and give big consideration to the Over. Your online bookie should have a great price on over 45.5. Buy this one down to 45. Never lay the hook.

Carson Wentz is in a groove with 1362 yards, 10 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions. He is seeing the playing field extremely well and racking up what looks to be a career year. Can the Panthers defense slow him down? Nobody else is slowing him down and at this rate; it’s going to be a difficult task for Carolina. Look for another 300 yard game from this explosive offense. The prop odds on Wentz are the play.

The Panthers will win this game if:

They can stop Carson Wentz? Forget about the Eagles stopping Cam Newton. Cam will get his yards, he is playing well and in a groove. Focus on what the Panthers can do on defense. Can they shut down this high-powered, potent offense that the Eagles are producing week in and week out?

The Panthers had the Detroit Lions on the ropes last week in Detroit and they almost let the Lions off the hook. This one was all but over and the Lions came storming back only to end up losing by 3 in the waning moments.

The Panthers are riding high, but this week against the Eagles is where the rubber meets the road. What they do on defense will dictate the outcome. The offense of Wentz and the Eagles will go toe-to-toe with anybody in the league as it gets better game to game. The Panthers will win this game if they make Wentz’ life miserable, force him into mistakes and take away the run.

Eagles vs. Panthers Preview and Prediction

Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles were the darlings of the NFL during the first month of the 2016 season. That fast start was following by a lengthy tailspin, which is why the Eagles are not getting too far ahead of themselves as they prepare to visit the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night in a matchup of division leaders.

The Philadelphia Eagles are now on top of the NFC East division, and they have to be extremely happy about the development of their young quarterback. The Carolina Panthers have had to deal with the after-effects of surgery on Cam Newton, not to mention to the distraction of his latest blowup, but they, like the Eagles, have won four of their first five games and lead the NFC South.

Although the Thursday Night schedule has left a little to be desired, this is a great matchup to start the week off. The Eagles are third in total offense, while giving up 1730 total yards, good for only 24th in the league. The Panthers are a little more balanced, being 13th in total offense and 6th in total defense.
