The Panthers and Redskins are both hoping to clinch a Wild Card spot in the Playoffs, and both are in need of a win in order to do so. It will be a tough contest between the two as they battle it out to stay in the playoff picture. Cam Newton and the Panthers have been a big letdown this season, but their defense was able to stay strong last weekend. If they can continue that into this game, they could stand a chance. However, we think the Redskins passing attack will be too strong for the Panthers and they will come out with a 6 point win.
Panthers vs. Redskins Score Prediction: Panthers 24, Redskins 30
Monday Night Football brings a pair of teams both needing wins in hopes of crashing the Wild Card scene. Carolina is in last place at 5-8 in the NFC South, while the Redskins sit right in the Wild Card race at 7-5-1.
Favorites to win the NFC South this year, the Carolina Panthers have been one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL this season. QB Cam Newton just hasn’t been able to get things going this season. Despite the win over the Chargers, the Panthers QB threw just 10 completions in 27 pass attempts. The Panthers offense is struggling, but their defense really stepped up last Sunday, and if they can do that again they can have a shot at winning. The Redskins have an impressive passing attack so it will be crucial for their defense to prepare for that.
The Redskins are right in the thick of the Wild Card race. QB Kirk Cousins comes in with momentum, as he has certainly stepped his game up as of late. Cousins leads the 2nd best passing attack in the NFL, as the Redskins average 313.5 pass yards per game. Expect to see their offense thrive this game as well. With Newton struggling, this is a perfect scenario for them to force him into some tough throws.
With the Panthers track record this year, we just can’t trust that they will be able to pull it together, so we think the Redskins will win 30-24 over the Panthers
