Eagles vs Panthers: NFL 2021 live stream will begin at 1 pm ET. The 3-1 Carolina Panthers will host the 1-3 Philadelphia Eagles in what should be a highly entertaining football game. The Panthers enter the matchup feeling the sting of their first loss of the season to the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles have lost three straight and are in desperate need of a win to turn things around.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Carolina Panthers
Date: Sunday, October 10, 2021, Time: 1 p.m. ET
Location: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte
The last time these two teams met was in Week 7 of the 2018 season when the Panthers picked up a 21-17 win in Philly. The Panthers are 5-7 all-time against the Eagles (4-7 in the regular season, 1-0 in the playoffs), and the Panthers have won the last two of the last three meetings between the two teams.
The Eagles are looking to improve on their 4-11-1 record from last year, but are off to a 1-3 start this season. They won their season opener against the Falcons, but have dropped their last three games to the 49ers, Cowboys, and Chiefs.
Philadelphia Eagles offense vs. Carolina Panthers defense
Jalen Hurts leads the Eagles into Carolina to take on a defense, who, opposite a conundrum against the Cowboys, has been impressive this season. While they’re going to get better with the addition of Stephon Gilmore, he won’t be available until coming off the PUP list. Still, Hurts has been limited as a downfield passer, while the Panthers’ defense is a solid unit at all three levels.
Eagles vs Panthers news
Jalen Hurts is the only quarterback in the NFL with 1,100 passing yards and 200 rushing yards this season. He’s also had at least two touchdown passes in three of his four starts and is coming off a career-high 387 passing yards in a 42-30 Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. Rookie receiver DeVonta Smith had career highs of seven catches for 122 yards in that game as well. The Eagles have played well in spots but have faced a tough slate in the early part of the season as their three losses have come against teams that are currently 7-5.
Despite his injury, McCaffrey leads Carolina with 201 rushing yards and ranks second on the team with 16 catches and 163 receiving yards. His versatility was sorely missed against the Cowboys as the Panthers suffered their first loss of the season to fall to 3-1.
McCaffrey was limited to three games in 2020 because of ankle and shoulder setbacks. He established himself as one of the league’s best running backs in 2019, though, rushing for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns and adding 1,005 receiving yards on his way to a first-team All-Pro selection.
Rookie RB Chuba Hubbard logged the first start of his career, filling in for an injured Christian McCaffrey. Hubbard recorded a team-high 57 rushing yards on 13 attempts (4.4 yards per attempt). He added 14 yards through the air giving him 71 scrimmage yards on 15 touches to finish the game.
Although the Panthers have a much better record heading into this matchup, they have played teams like the Texans and Jets, both of which now sport 1-3 records. On the flip side, the Eagles have played tougher teams like the Chiefs and 49ers, who are both 2-2.
If Christian McCaffrey was completely healthy, he would be an incredibly tough test for Jonathan Gannon’s defense. But he’s coming off a hamstring injury and I question how much he’ll be able to do. I’m not saying this is a slam dunk, but I have a feeling the Eagles get a much-needed win here before Tom Brady comes to town on Thursday.
