Carolina is looking to get things bacl on track but it won’t be easy on the road.
Making matters worse for the Panthers is that they are having a lot of trouble with injuries.
The Patriots will unveil yet another Super Bowl banner, and they will get their Super Bowl rings to kick off the pregame festivities.
The last time the Chiefs and the Patriots matched up was in the playoffs in 2016 when the Patriots came out ahead 27-20.
You are supposed to win division games at home but Carolina was dismal last week in losing at home to New Orleans. They were never really in the game.
Making matters worse is that top receiver Kelvin Benjamin left the game with an injury.
If he can’t go it puts a lot of pressure on others to step up. They are already playing without TE Greg Olsen and if Benjamin is a no go that means they are relying on a lot on unproven players.
Lucky for Carolina that means Christian McCaffery who caught 9 balls last week for 101 yards. I love the rookie but it limits the Panthers ability to use the whole field to feature him.
However, featuring any player is difficult if Cam Newton is not sharper. Three interceptions is practically the formula for losing.
A healthy Carolina team might be a decent matchup for the Patriots but they are far from that and they are not playing good football. Inefficiency kills against New England.
Houston showed that you can make the Pats sweat if you can put pressure on the QB. They do not have the pass rush of the Texans so they may have to sell out to do so.
The Panthers could be the best team in the NFC South this season. It is hard to see it right now and things might get worse before they start getting better.
New England Patriots
The Patriots needed al 60 minutes to put away the Texans last week. They are 2-1 and still a favourite but they are showing a lot more mortality this season.
The biggest positive from the vicyory was the growing connection between Tom Brady and Brandin Cooks. Cooks has elite talent and is a threat on every down to go the distance.
Even though he was questionable coming into the game Rob Gronkowski was a factor. The TE is one of the biggest difference makers in the league. He might be questionable every game this season.
Even though they squeaked out a win the fact that New England can’t protect its most important asset is disturbing.
It is also disturbing that the defense gave up so many points to a mediocre offense featuring a rookie quarterback. They were supposed to eat him up.
Cam Newton is a different kind of challenge. He can put pressure on a defense with his running but has not done much of that this season.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: New England -8.5
New England is one of the few teams that can win without playing their best. Carolina can too but not against a team that anyone would call a good one.
NFL Free Week 4 Score Prediction: Patriots 31 – Panther 16
The Panthers are one of the most frustrating teams in the NFL. Their inability to finish drives is going to hurt them a lot in this one.
Even though they did not lose last week I expect that New England will play like they did. They probably should have and they respond in those situations.
