The Carolina Panthers continued their winning ways on the road against Detroit last week. However, they will face the Eagles on Thursday night so they will have to put the champagne on ice. The team have a short week of preparation and another game just four days removed from their last. Quarterback Cam Newton is riding a hot streak, throwing for six touchdowns in the last two games with only one interception. Newton said, “I’m just trying to find ways to do anything for this team to win a football game – running, passing, blocking, catching, cheering. It don’t matter.”
In victories at New England and Detroit the past two weeks, Newton posted a pair of 300-yard passing performances while finishing with passer ratings better than 130 in both games. Tom Brady is the only other quarterback to notch a 130-plus passer rating in back-to-back games this season.
Philadelphia demolished Arizona last week, with a score of 34-7. This extended their winning streak to 3 games. The Eagles scored touchdowns on their first three possessions of the game and snuffed the Cardinals from there, easily covering a six-point spread.
Philadelphia out-gained Arizona 419-307, out-rushed the Cardinals 122-31 and won time of possession by a 36/24 margin. Quarterback Carson Wentz threw four touchdown passes, including a pair of long ones, and hit 11-for-12 on third downs. The Eagles defense has been rock solid as they held Arizona to a single touchdown.
Wentz is receiving good reviews, and why not? But with a recent boost from running back LeGarrette Blount, paired with the second-ranked run defense in the league, Philadelphia has out-rushed its last three opponents by a per-game average of 176-46.
