Lions vs Panthers Highlights
The Lions possess the ferocity and determination necessary to pull off the upset on the road this week, despite the fact that they could benefit from having more depth in key positions. When it comes to motivating his team for an exciting game against the Panthers, Coach Dan Campbell has all the personalities in the locker room he needs at his disposal. His players have adored him everywhere he has coached.
The Panthers went 5-12 last season after taking a chance on Sam Darnold, a former first-round pick for the Jets. While Darnold is still a member of the Panthers, fellow first-round draft pick Baker Mayfield has been traded to the team from the Browns. Last season, Carolina’s defense was the second-best in the NFL in terms of yards allowed, so the Panthers will be hoping to use that to their advantage against Jared Goff and the Lions. But they may be less confident in the offensive line, which appears to have some trouble protecting the starting quarterback.
In historic head-to-head matchups for Lions vs Panthers, the Panthers have a 7-3 advantage. They won their most recent match against the Detroit franchise in 2020 by a score of 20-0, frustrating their opponents by keeping them scoreless. Can they replicate that achievement again this week? If you bet on NFL games, it probably won’t be that simple this time around, and these two seem carefully matched on paper. Back a narrow home win for Carolina.
