Carolina Panthers vs Philadelphia Eagles Monday Night Football Odds Analysis

Everyone will be focused on how Eagles backup quarterback Mark Sanchez will fare as a starter. He will be replacing the injured Nick Foles, who broke his collarbone last week against the Houston Texans. Sanchez came in and relieved the injured Foles in Week 9 and fared well, leading the Eagles to their sixth win of the season.

"He’s already ready, he’s always focused and always prepared to make plays and that’s part of his makeup," coach Kelly said. "That’s what we really liked about him."

The Eagles are favored by 7.5 points in this game and they will live or die based on how well Sanchez will play. The absence of Foles will slow down Kelly’s hurry up offense but that may not matter with how much the Panthers’ offense has struggled recently.

Now Sanchez will make his first start since Dec. 30, 2012, after missing last season because of a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Including the postseason, Sanchez owns a 37-31 career record as a starter with 77 scores and 72 picks.

"He plays at a high level," said Maclin, who has 18 catches for 345 yards and four touchdowns in his last two games. "I think he is one of the more game-ready backup quarterbacks in this league."

Quarterback Cam Newton has thrown for just 322 combined yards in his last two games and has an interception in each of his last five. The Panthers’ rushing game hasn’t helped them much either as they’re averaging less than 100 yards a game.

I think the reports of Sanchez’s success in the Eagles’ system are highly exaggerated. I give this game to the Panthers.

Final Score: Panthers 31 Eagles 17
