The stifling Eagles defense kept the Panthers at bay all afternoon. Numerous 4th down Eagles conversions had the Carolina Panthers deficit peaking at 17 with the game clock rampantly running down. With HB Christian McCaffrey bottled up, QB Cam Newton was forced to scramble a few carries and create a running game out of nothing. Critical thinking and creativity gave Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner enough charisma to scheme a gorgeous WR Devin Funchess 18 yard TD pass that helped changed the momentum in the game. The Panthers defense simply clamped down in the 4th quarter, they forced two punts and a crucial fumble late in the game. With the win, the Panthers now advance to a 4-2 season record and after defeating the New York Giants with a 55+ yard field goal last week, they have to believe that their perseverance and strategy will help them make a post-season run. At the forefront, they'll need to fend off a striding New Orleans Saints team to conquer the NFC South.
