Carolina RB Christian McCaffrey is officially doubtful for this matchup, but even without their star offensive weapon, there are more than enough challenges for an Eagles defense that continues to struggle. Panthers QB Sam Darnold is coming into his own this season, and has quieted the laughter from his years with the Jets. Through four games, Darnold’s averaging a 67.8 completion percentage, and has recorded over 300 passing yards three weeks in a row.
The good news for Philadelphia is that Carolina’s OL has given up 11 sacks — including 5 in Week 4 alone — and Darnold has thrown three interceptions. If the Eagles offense and Jalen Hurts can continue to put up points like they have the past two games, and the defense can actually get some pressure on Darnold, there is hope that Philadelphia gets a road win — one they desperately need heading into a short week.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
