New England Patriots Preview

The Patriots may have only come away with a field goal margin of victory last week, but they put on a clinic in their road game against the Los Angeles Chargers. New England dominated the time of possession, running 75 plays compared to just 58 for the Chargers. It’s clear that Josh McDaniels is honing in the identity of this year’s Patriots offense. Predictability, the focus is on the ground game. Damien Harris had another impressive performance last week, rumbling for 80 yards and a score. Both Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden also amassed 26 yards apiece on just four carries. Given their success on the ground, very little pressure was put on the arm of rookie quarterback Mac Jones. A similar formula will likely allow the Patriots to cover as NFL betting favorites again this week.

Only one Pats receiver finished over 40 yards last week. That was Nelson Agholor. The revolving door of pass-catchers continues. It’s anyone’s guess as to which New England receiver(s) will step up any given week. The clinic carried over to the defense in last week’s win as well. Matthew Judon capped off a ridiculous first two months with another 1.5 sacks. Meanwhile, in the secondary, Adrian Phillips intercepted Justin Herbert twice. The savvy defensive scheming of Bill Belichick has now created 10 interceptions on the season and 13 total takeaways. Both marks rank near the top of the NFL. 

Carolina Panthers Preview

The Panthers successfully snapped a four-game losing skid last Sunday with a big road win over the NFC South rival Atlanta Falcons. The defense came up huge in holding Atlanta to just 213 yards of total offense. Whether or not the Panthers will be able to replicate that defensive success this week is another story altogether. Carolina ranks just 19th in adjusted defensive efficiency against the run, per Football Outsiders. Knowing that the Patriots want to run the football, generating stops could be tricky business in this NFL betting contest.

The Panthers also are facing an unknown with regard to who will start at quarterback in Week 9. Sam Darnold got absolutely crushed trying to run for a touchdown late in last week’s game. He has yet to practice beyond a limited capacity this week. If Darnold does not clear concussion protocol, former XFL standout P.J. Walker will draw the start. No matter who is under center, moving the ball against New England’s defense won’t be easy. One potential lift for Carolina’s offense would be the long-awaited return of star running back, Christian McCaffrey. If he isn’t able to make it back, rookie Chuba Hubbard will draw another start and will look to build off of his best game to date. D.J. Moore continues to be the Panthers’ top receiving threat on a weekly basis.
