Two of the best teams in the NFC will match up against in each other in a rare match up of quality opponents on Thursday Night Football. The suprising Philadelphia Eagles travel to take on Cam Newtown and the Carolina Panthers. Carson Wentz has continued to improve since his successful rookie campaign with the help of WR Nelson Agholor. Agholor, struggling with drops last year, has stepped up in a big way for the Philadelphia Eagles and is starting to prove himself as a reliable receiver. The Eagles may be in trouble with OL Lane Johnson out with a concussion. The rest of the Eagles offensive line and QB Carson Wentz will be tested in the absence of Lane Johnson. The Eagles must rely on their run game in order to protect Wentz and open up the passing game, if they want to win this important match up.
