Last Week

Panthers defeated by Indianapolis Colts, 13-27

The Panthers were a popular upset pick in Week 9 as a slight underdog against the Colts, in what could have been a “revenge game” for former Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich. Instead, the Panthers were handed a thorough defeat and failed to put together their first win streak of the season. Rookie quarterback Bryce Young’s two pick-six interceptions were lowlights from the two-touchdown loss.

Bears defeated by New Orleans Saints, 17-24

After taking an early touchdown lead over the Saints on the road, the Bears were outscored 10-3 in the second half. Three of their four final drives of the game ended in a turnover, with rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent throwing two interceptions and losing a fumble. Bagent is set to start his fourth consecutive game in-place of the injured Justin Fields and will look for a bounce-back performance.


The staff is heavily favoring the Panthers as an underdog in this matchup.
