New England is also coming off a bye week following their win over Pittsburgh. That win was big because it was the first game in which the Patriots scored more than 30 points this season, something of a rarity given the offensive dominance of the last few seasons. Carolina’s win over San Francisco wasn’t quite as exciting, but the defensive performance put forward in the 10-9 victory was definitely a sight to see.
Carolina opened as 1.5-point favorites for the matchup, though the line has went in both directions throughout the week, as noted by OddsShark. Some sites narrowed, with the Panthers favored by just one point, while one of the big sites has them favored by a whopping 2.5 points. It should be interesting, to say the least.
The over/under is between 45.5 and 46.5 points. That total has gone over in four of New England’s last six games and under in four of Carolina’s last five games at home.
The Lions smell chum in the water. They are currently in a three-way tie atop the NFC North standings, and the other two teams, the Packers and the Bears, are both dealing with injured quarterbacks this weekend. Detroit has not won a division championship since 1993, but has a chance to take control of first place in Week 10.
Jay Cutler will start for the Bears this weekend, but whether he is 100 percent remains to be seen. He had a curiously fast recovery from a groin injury. Cutler may need to be at his best to keep pace with the Lions. If the Bears can pull out the win, they too may be able to take control of the NFC North, depending on what happens to the Packers against the Eagles.
