Panthers vs. Eagles MNF Preview

Posted: Updated:

Charlotte, NC (WBTV)

The 3-7 Eagles and 2-8 Panthers are getting set for the "battle of the bad's" in prime time, tonight on Monday Night Football.

On paper, this should be a win for the cats. Philadelphia is starting 7 first year players, and that includes rookie quarterback Nick Foles and rookie running back Bryce Brown.

Starting QB Michael Vick, and RB LeSean McCoy are not playing because both have suffered a concussion in recent weeks.

There is no certain wins in the NFL .. especially for the Panthers. They have allowed 3 game winning drives this season .. so if it's close .. history won't be playing into their favor.

To get off to a good start they'll be trying to force the rookie Foles into making bad decisions.

The tandem of defensive ends Greg Hardy and Charles Johnson have combined for 15.5 sacks this season, that's the most in the league by a duo.

Captain Munnnerlyn is one pick 6 away from tying the franchise record for most interception returns by a cornerback. Captain has 3, 2 of them this season. The record is 4.
