Thursday Night Football: Eagles and Panthers Look To Reach 5 Wins

Thursday Night Football

Thursday Night Football Feature Two 4-1 Teams

The Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers battle on Thursday Night Football at Bank of America Stadium. The game will be televised for free on CBS, and over pay television on the NFL Network. Kickoff is set for 8:25 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Panthers as -3-point favorites versus the Eagles, while the game’s total opened at 45. The line has held steady since opening.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers both should be in the right frame of mind for a short week. Both are looking to become the NFL’s second five-win team of the season.

With only three days between games both teams are looking at the quick turnaround as a big challenge. Both teams have found a groove this season.  The Panthers have won back-to-back road games at New England and Detroit.

Newton Looks to Keep Improving on Thursday Night Football

Carolina was a 27-24 winner in its last match on the road against the Detroit Lions. They covered the +2-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 51 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Quarterback Cam Newton is coming off a pair of great outings. His practice time has increased following offseason shoulder surgery. The results speak for themselves.

Carolina was flagged for seven penalties within the first 16 minutes in Detroit. It will take better discipline to maintain the winning ways, especially against a good Eagles squad.

Eagles Hope Dominating Win Over Cards Carries Over to Thursday Night Football

Philadelphia was a 34-7 winner in its last match at home against the Arizona Cardinals. They covered the -6-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 41 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Carson Wentz leads the NFL with 37 completed third-down passes. His 11 yards per attempt on third down along has resulted in six third-down touchdown tosses.

The Eagles have concerns along the offensive line. Right tackle Lane Johnson was placed in concussion protocol during Sunday’s game. That may mean Halapoulivaati Vaitai will be play full time. Vaitai received good reviews for his backup role against the 49ers. Carolina ends Charles Johnson and Julius Peppers might create additional challenges.
