These are two of the surprise teams in the NFC this season, especially Carolina, who turned over their coach and a lot of personnel this offseason.
Chicago finally made the move away from Mitch Trusbisky and it might have saved Matt Nagy and the Bears this season.
The winner will definitely be in a great spot in the NFC going forward. Chicago is trying to keep pace with Green Bay.
Chicago seems to be subscribing to the theory that it is sometimes better to be lucky than good. They have lost only one game but wins over Atlanta and Detroit required monumental comebacks.
Last week they beat Tom Brady and Tampa Bay by just a point. Even though they are 4-1 in on the season they are just plus five on points this season.
The quarterback job is now Nick Foles. The move is probably the right one but Trubisky actually has a better rating for the season. Foles has been adequate, but next level in terms of inspiring team confidence
The offense would be better if they could have more success running the ball and if they had more speed and shiftiness to work with. RB Tarik Cohen would help in both areas but he is hurt.
The defense has been solid all season long. They are fourth in points allowed at an even 20ppg.
With a first time NFL head coach in Matt Rhule this was supposed to be a season on transition. Then the pandemic hit, Cam Newton, left and Christian McCaffery got hurt. They have overcome all of these things and sit tied for the NFC South lead at 3-2.
The injury to McCaffery was supposed to be a death knell but Mike Davis has given them a respectable ground attack. That balance has been key.
Teddy Bridgewater has been better than expected and Carolina has the 5th best passing attack in the NFL. He is completing 73% of his passes and has a passer rating of 101.
On defense this team is not as good as it has been in the recent past but they are fourth against the pass. In the modern NFL if you can succeed there you have a great chance.
This is the first time this season that Carolina has been a favourite. Let’s see how they respond to that role.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Carolina -3
The telling us that these teams are about even makes sense to me. I like the combo of Rhule and Bridgewater better than Nagu and Foles. Chicago might have a better defense but Carolina’s offense is the better unit overall. Look for the Panthers winning ways to continue.
