It feels so good after five games for the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers that they’re both in the right frame of mind for a short week of preparation before their next game.
It’s about to be better for one of them as the winner of Thursday night’s matchup at Bank of America Stadium will be the NFL’s second five-win team of the season.
“We’re finding ways to keep getting better,” Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said. “Good for our morale as a whole.”
Schatz: George Kittle, TE, 49ers. So far, the one position that’s getting plenty of receptions against the Washington defense is tight end. Fifth-round rookie Kittle is on the rise in San Francisco. That seems like a great combination to me.
Sando: Will Fuller V, WR, Texans. Fuller gets a crack at the Browns’ secondary. That’s a favorable matchup anyway, especially with coach Bill O’Brien seeming to keep the accelerator pressed whether Houston is leading or trailing.
Yates: Taylor Gabriel, WR, Falcons. If Mohamed Sanu sits this week, I’d roll the dice on Gabriel. The Falcons return from their bye to face a Miami team that has yet to track Cheap Dolphins Jerseys down an interception this season. Gabriel has the kind of speed that can make him a factor with just Cheap College Basketball Jerseys one play; he has a shot at a half-dozen targets if Sanu sits and is on the flex radar in a deeper league.
