Philadelphia Eagles Vs. Carolina Panthers 11/26/12 Dave D.’s Free NFL Pick Against the Spread Free Football Picks
The Carolina Panthers (2-8) lost their second game in a row last week 21-27 in overtime to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Philadelphia Eagles (3-7) ran their losing streak to six games with a 6-31 beat down at the hands of the Washington Redskins.
The Carolina Panthers just aren’t finishers. In five of their last six losses, the Panthers had a lead only to blow it. Last week was no exception. The Panthers led 21-10 with six minutes left to go in the forth quarter before a field goal and an impressive 80 yard drive by Josh Freeman tied the game up. The Bucs quickly scored in OT to finish off the comeback. Quarterback Cam Newton finished with 252 yards passing and 40 yards rushing.
Andy Reid’s time as the Eagles coach may be coming to an end soon. The Eagles are a very bad football team and inserting Nick Foles at quarterback didn’t help their cause last week. Foles finished the game 21 for 46 and 204 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns. That’s brutal. Even though this was a look ahead game for the Redskins who play rival Dallas on Thanksgiving, the Redskins were able to toy with the Eagles on the way to an easy win.

You have to go all the way back to the October 14th game against the Lions to find a game the Eagles were competitive in. The Carolina Panthers really aren’t much better, but they have been very competitive on the road losing to the Bucs by six, the Bears by one, the Falcons by two, and beating the Redskins by eight. There are not many selling points to either of these teams, but my comfort level is higher with the Panthers as they have played well at times and we get a few points as well. I’m on the Panthers.
