EAGLES at Carolina Panthers (-3)

Top spot in the NFC is on the line when these two 4-1 squads meet in what might actually be a good Thursday Night Football game. Carson Wentz and Cam Newton each had their best outings of the season in Week 5, with Newton’s coming on the heels of his outrageous remarks made about a female reporter. If the Panthers offense was able to focus with all the negative buzz around Newton, surely they can prepare for a vulnerable Eagles secondary on a short week. Stopping Philly’s offense will be a bigger challenge, now that the unit has found a rhythm with its ground game. The Eagles scored touchdowns on their first three drives against Arizona, and are first in the league in time of possession. Add on Carolina’s unimpressive 3-7 ATS record at home since 2016, and I’ll be chanting #FlyEaglesFly from the stands. (That’s right, I’m going to this game. I reallywish I hadn’t jinxed it now.)

Pick: Eagles (+3):
