The Panthers look like they’re for real. A 5-0 start, including a comeback win over the Seahawks in Seattle in Week 6, have rendered them the only remaining undefeated squad in the NFC South. Their previous monikor as worst undefeated team in the league will have to be re-evaluated, especially now that they have star linebacker Luke Kuechly back in the fold on defense.
The Eagles, meanwhile, have been mired in mediocrity so far. Sam Bradford and the offense have struggled to finda consistent rhythm, but Bradford knows how to lead a team and is not afraid to do so. Such determination is badly needed by Philly if they want to turn themselves into NFC contenders, and that could start on Sunday night at Bank of America Stadium.
