Panthers vs Patriots prediction, odds and picks – November 7 | NFL Week 9
In a battle between two teams currently at .500, the New England Patriots will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers.
The Patriots have been better than their record this season suggests. They fumbled in the red zone in the first game of the season against the Dolphins, missed a game-winning field goal against the Buccaneers and lost in overtime to the Cowboys. If a couple of plays had turned in their direction, they would have been among the best dogs in the AFC.
They come into this game having won both of their matches and are in excellent shape to compete for a wild card spot.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are going in the opposite direction. They started the season 3-0, then lost four in a row, but finally managed to break their losing streak with a courageous performance against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Panthers’ offense has struggled without Christian McCaffrey and the star’s return Sunday could be the spark they need to get back on their feet.
