Carolina Panthers vs. Washington Redskins: The Panthers are back home after a disappointing meltdown in Atlanta and will just to find a positive victory this Sunday with some help from the fans.
QB Cam Newton has been lighting up the stat boards and now just needs to do that with points. After a great first half last Sunday, the Panthers offense seemed to stall and fall apart. TE Jeremy Shockey stepped up and looks like he’s ready to prove he still has some mojo left.
The Panthers defense generates good pass rush but the secondary needs to tighten up a tad. The Redskins are still debating on a starting quarterback which should bode well for the Panthers defense.
Speaking of which, the Redskins will probably go with John Beck as their starting quarterback who will be without TE Chris Cooley who broke his left index finger and could be done for the season.
The Redskins defense will need to be prepared for the arm and mobility of Newton. However, if they study the Falcons game tape, they should see that he can make big plays, but also gets nervous a bit in the pocket.
My pick for the winner: Carolina Panthers.
