Carolina Panthers Form


Carolina boast a perfect 2-0 record heading into their first road game of the 2021 season.

The Panthers opened with a 19-14 win over Sam Darnold’s old club, the New York Jets.

They then shut down a New Orleans offense that lit up Green Bay a week earlier, winning 26-7.

Darnold has made a solid start to his Carolina career, going 50/73 for 584 yards, three touchdowns and a pick. He also has a rushing score.

RB Christian McCaffrey has been huge for Darnold so far. He has 324 all-purpose yards and a touchdown through two games.

DJ Moore has been Darnold’s favorite target, hauling in 14 of his 19 pass attempts for 159 yards and a TD.

The defense have been playing lights out too. They held New Orleans to just 128 total yards and a garbage time TD a week ago.

They have allowed an average of just 190.0 yards per game, while racking up 21 QB hits and 10 sacks.

Carolina Panthers Injury Report


  • DE Yetur Gross-Matos (ankle) - Out

Houston Texans Form


Houston return home with a 1-1 record after a mixed start to the 2020 season.

The Texans ruined Trevor Lawrence’s NFL debut as they picked him off three times in a 37-21 win.

They were brought back down to Earth in Cleveland a week later, losing 31-21 in game that saw them lose starting QB Tyrod Taylor to injury.

Rookie third-stringer Davis Mills replaced Taylor during the game and went 8/18 for 102 yards, one touchdown and one pick.

Mills will need plenty of help in his first NFL start against this tough Panthers defense.

Mark Ingram leads Houston in rushing with 126 yards and a TD off 40 carries. Brandin Cooks is the leading receiver with 210 yards and a score off 14 receptions.

The defense has been opportunistic with four picks. They are allowing 375 yards and 26 points per game though.

Verdict

Carolina have been a surprise early on but a Thursday night win for them will not be a shock.

The Panthers defense could feast on a third-string rookie QB and McCaffrey could have a big night at the office.

All of this should result in Carolina improving to 3-0 and covering for the third time this season.
