'Thursday Night Football' tonight: Streaming, TV, because a Panthers will kick a Eagles

Cam Newton was a first-overall collect in a 2011 NFL Draft. He’s started all though 4 games in his six-plus seasons, and in 2015, he led a Panthers to a 15-1 record and a Super Bowl appearance, and for his efforts he was named NFL MVP.

Carson Wentz was taken second altogether in 2016, behind Jared Goff. The devise was to have Sam Bradford start a deteriorate though he was traded to a Vikings, and Wentz was towering to a tip of a abyss chart. In his initial 3 starts — all wins — Wentz averaged 256 yards flitting a diversion with 5 touchdowns, no interceptions and only dual sacks. The existence of life as a immature NFL quarterback set in shortly thereafter; 7 of his final 13 games featured performances that warranted disastrous grades, according to Pro Football Focus, and a Eagles limped to a 7-9 record.

When it was over, Wentz ranked 27th in sum value among quarterbacks, according to Football Outsiders’ metrics, though a knowledge was invaluable.

The lesson: Hey, Cleveland Browns, if you’re listening, you’re on march for another top-overall pick. How about we take a quarterback given your latest examination — 2017 second-rounder DeShone Kizer — already appears to be latest misadventure on a world’s saddest list of starting quarterbacks.

Back to Wentz, who has been incrementally improved any week this season, with his best opening entrance opposite a Cardinals on Sunday, when a threw 4 touchdowns, including 3 in a initial quarter. He ranks eighth among all quarterbacks, only behind Aaron Rodgers — and 7 spots forward of Newton, according to Football Outsiders. And as Wentz’s certainty grows, so, too, does a certainty of his teammates.

“In my opinion, this is a quarterback league. Everything runs by that position,” core Jason Kelce pronounced this week. “This whole thing runs by him so he deserves a lot of credit. He’s putting us in a lot of good positions on a ground, and apparently currently he was means to make a lot of plays by a air. By a same token, we consider he does a good pursuit of creation certain that he appreciates everybody and what they’re doing. He’s a initial chairman to come adult to an descent line and appreciate them for picking adult a shell so that he had time to chuck it downfield, even if he was a reason because we picked adult a blitz. we consider he deserves a lot of credit, that goes though being said.”

Newton, meanwhile, looks like his MVP self in new weeks after concerns that offseason shoulder medicine were to censure for his delayed start in September. In his initial 3 games, Newton never finished some-more than 65 percent of his passes, had dual touchdowns and 4 interceptions. In a dual weeks since, Newton is completing 77 percent of his throws and has 6 touchdowns and one interception.

Newton is behind to personification Superman for a Panthers. 

This is acquire news for a Panthers, who managed only 6 wins final deteriorate when Newton had career lows in execution commission (52.9), yards per try (6.9), rushing yards (359) and passer rating (75.8). Despite a turnaround, however, a Panthers quarterback isn’t meddlesome in comparing his tide successes to his MVP debate in 2015.

“I’m only so focused on perplexing to find a approach to be 1-0 by a finish of Thursday night,” Newton pronounced this week. “I know we guys have got a pursuit to do and perplexing to make review and contrast, that’s what this society’s all about, or this is what we guys are all about. I’m only perplexing to find ways to do anything for this group to win a football game. Running, passing, blocking, catching, cheering, it doesn’t matter.”

And no need to worry about Newton’s shoulder either.

“If we were to play today, we would have to be prepared to play today,” he said. “It doesn’t make me any different, only like it won’t make anybody else any different.”

Newton’s re-emergence as one of a league’s best players is a large reason we like a Panthers to exist a Eagles in a tighten game.

Our prediction: Panthers 24 Eagles 21
