The Eagles looked pretty good in their opening win against Atlanta but pretty bad ever since.
Carolina was 3-0 until they struggled last week against Dallas. If they are significantly improved this should be an easy win at home.
If you believe in the Panthers this looks like a major buy-low opportunity this weekend with recent results reframing the perception of the team.
The Eagles looked like a team that might have been underrated after a blowout win over Atlanta in the first game of the season. Since then they have definitely been exposed.
I know you have to consider the opponent but the Eagles have given up more than 40 points in each of their last 2 losses to Dallas and Kansas City.
It is really tough to win with that level of defensive ineptitude, especially when their own offense is far from a guarantee. Jalen Hurts might be improving but it is still tough to look at what they got and pencil in enough points to win.
If the Eagles were actually winning Hurst would be an MVP candidate. He is leading the team in both rushing and passing trying to do a Lamar Jackson light impression. I do like that he uses all the weapons around him too. 7 different receivers already have double-digit receptions on the season.
The defense probably can’t improve all that much on a down to down basis so they may need to be more aggressive to create havoc plays and turnovers. Through 4 games no player has more than 1 sack and no player has more than one interception.
The Panthers were underdogs on the road last week so they were supposed to lose at Dallas. It was kind of how they did so that is really concerning. They fell apart in the second half.
It is not to be overlooked that they were playing without RB Christian McCaffery last week. He is out indefinitely so this will be another chance for Chuba Hubbard to be featured in the offense.
Sam Darnold continues to play pretty well though. He threw 2 interceptions last week but also has a streak of 3 straight 300 yard games. He also has 5 rushing TDs matching his total from his first 3 seasons in the NFL.
Over the first few weeks, Carolina had been winning with defense. However, their results against Dallas indicate that the defense might not be all it is cracked up to be.
Carolina needs a bounce back at home and the Eagles are a good opponent but just that sort of thing. Even if they are not at full strength.

4* Free Week 5 NFL Betting Prediction: Philadelphia +4
The key here is that number, of course. Carolina is a nice team but some scheduling helped them get off to that 3-0 start. Philadelphia is not a great team but as long as Hurst is solid they should be able to move the ball and score enough for this to be a 3 points game.
Even if it is of the backdoor variety.
