Carolina Panthers

Sunday proved to be a great day for the Panthers as they dominated the New Orleans Saints, leaving the Panthers with 2-0. They have left the news and media talking especially about the defense led by Shaq Thompson. After one quarter, Carolina led 7-0 and 17-0 at the half. In their last five away games, the Panthers have won four out of five games played. The team has a pretty admirable offense, averaging 100 yards running the balls per game. Christian McCaffrey is leading the team with 170 yards and a touchdown. Shaq Thompson has been the head of the defense with 14 tackles, helped by Hasson Reddick’s three sacks and Jaycee Horn’s single interception.

Players to watch: S. Darnold QB (GP 1, CMP 24, ATT 35, CMP% 68.6, YDS 279, AVG 8, YDS/G 278, LNG 57, TD 1, INT 0, SACK 1, SYL 9, RTG 102), (GP 1, REC 9, TGTS 9, YDS 89, AVG 9.9, TD 0, LNG 22, BIG 1, YDS/G 89, FUM 0, LST 0, YAC 84, FD 6), C.

Houston Texans

Though the Texans are dominating the AFC South, they were helpless against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The team has also been unlucky injury-wise, with Nico Collins and Tyrod Taylor expected to miss almost a month. In the last nine home games played, Houston has lost six. They are averaging 121 yards in their ground game, with Mark Ingram II running 126 yards and scoring one touchdown. Defense-wise, Houston is led by Zack Cunningham with 13 tackles. The team has been allowing 26 points and 375 yards per game. Whitney Mercilus’ sack and Justin Reid’s two interceptions have been helpful in this.
