Monday NFL analysis: The Carolina Panthers travel to the city of brotherly love to take on the Philadelphia Eagles for the week 10 edition of Monday night football.

The Carolina Panthers come in for Monday night’s contest with a 3–5–1 record and have lost 3 games in a row. They are coming off a lackluster 28–10 home loss last Thursday night to New Orleans. Quarterback Cam Newton was sacked 4 times and only passed for 151 yards as they failed to have any consistency on offense. They struggled on third down as well, converting on only 6 of 14 third down opportunities. Newton as completed 57% of his passes for 1794 yards with 8 touchdowns and 5 interceptions and has been sacked 21 times the season. Newton is also second on the team in rushing with 257 yards, there’s something to be said for that as their leading rusher Jonathan Stewart has only 263 yards on the season. They’ve struggled in the run game averaging 3.7 yards per carry and have yet to eclipse 1000 yard mark this season. Newton’s struggles on offense may be due to the fact his lack of weapons on offense, rookie wide receiver or Kelvin Benjamin has 589 yards receiving with 5 touchdowns, and tight end Greg Olsen has 539 yards on the year with 5 touchdowns as well. Their defense is led by All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly yet they have struggled the season as they are ranked 25th in the league and total defense, and are struggling to stop the run allowing 131.8 yards per game.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 6–2 and lead the NFC East division. They are coming off a 31–21 win over Houston, a game that saw their starting quarterback Nick Foles go down with a collarbone injury. Foles looks to be out of commission for the remainder of the season so now the Eagles will rely on veteran Mark Sanchez to carry the team. In a relief role, Sanchez completed 15 of 22 to pass attempts for 202 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. There are some that say if the quarterback competition was an open competition in training camp, Sanchez might have won the job and he certainly looked impressive in the preseason. Sanchez is primarily known for his time with the New York Jets, and also for the ‘butt fumble’. Many forget that Sanchez also led the Jets to consecutive AFC championship game appearances. As a team the Eagles are 4th in the league in total offense, averaging 409.2 yards per game, and they are running the ball effectively averaging 124 yards per game behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is having quite a season, with 790 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns. The Eagles rank 24th in the league in total defense, allowing 373 yards per game. They have struggled against the pass allowing 256 yards through the air per game.

I’d really like to take the points here, with Carolina being embarrassed last Thursday night on national television. However, in their previous game on national TV they were embarrassed at home by the Pittsburgh Steelers. I just can’t trust this Carolina team, even getting points. They have no continuity on offense, and defensively they definitely aren’t the team they were last year. Philadelphia is dealing with the key injury on offense, and their starting middle linebacker, DeMeco Ryans is also out for the year. I expect both the offense and defense to rise up to the challenge and compensate for these losses. Mark Sanchez is well liked by his teammates, and I think the team will rally around him to put on an impressive performance on Monday night. Philadelphia has a lot to play for, and as for Carolina? Yeah they do, but this team hasn’t shown me anything and honestly they just cannot be trusted even getting points. I’ll lay the points with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.
