Sleeper Super Bowl matchup? Not necessarily my pick but both teams have those kinds of aspirations.
As teams that are that far along in their development we should not expect to be shown too much in this matchup. It is all about the regular season.
Kick off is set for 7:30 PM ET with both teams just looking to be healthy. Both are set at the most important positions and have experience on the sidelines.
Pittsburgh knows it has a good team and is going to make sure they are ready to go when the games really count. During the preseason the play has been kind of drab, not much scoring.
I like that they are giving Josh Dobbs a look at QB. Love his athleticism and expect he will get the bulk of the playing time in this one.
On defense they will keep it pretty vanilla. Mike Tomlin is not going to put anything on film that an opponent might be able to use later in the season.
Pitt is usually a great regular season underdog with Big Ben but here there is not a ton to like.
Cam Newton is the key to the Panthers season so don’t expect to see much of him in this one.
If he is not healthy for the regular season the Panthers are sunk even though Derek Anderson is an experienced backup who can move the ball.
This team does have depth at receiver and in the backfield so I think they will be able to move the ball against Pittsburgh.
Carolina has been pretty good in these final meaningless contests. They are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and at home they have a great opportunity to keep up that run if they put in enough effort.

I am expecting a pretty boring effort from both sides in this one. Both sides are just looking not to stub their toes.
NFL Free Preseason Score Prediction: Carolina 17 – Pittsburgh 13
The teams will be in no hurry to operate and will keep things very vanilla. Tomlin is 16-25 O/U in the preseason.
