THE EAGLES' defense heads to Carolina this weekend having forced 16 turnovers in six games, second-most in the NFL behind Denver's 17. The Birds' eight fumble recoveries are tied with the Broncos for the league lead. Suddenly, forcing turnovers has become a big part of the team's identity; the Eagles have done it seven times in their back-to-back victories over the Saints and the Giants. Four times in those games the Eagles recovered fumbles, accounting for half their season total.

YOU ARE going to hear a lot about Cam Newton over the next few days, but the best player on the Carolina Panthers lines up on the opposite side of the ball, so if you are going to spend your weekend worrying about ways the Eagles can lose on Sunday night, start with Luke Kuechly. He wears No. 59, and here is why he matters: Remember in Week 2, when the Eagles' offense looked incapable of moving the ball up and down the field against the Cowboys? If not, go down to your local playground and watch a toddler try to run. It won't be a perfect approximation, but it will be close.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera has decided to call wide receiver Corey "Philly" Brown by his nickname. Rivera is in his second year coaching the Philadelphia native and Cardinal O'Hara alum. And he wants Philly on the field - not Corey. "Corey's a nice kid. Philly, he's a tough kid," Rivera said. "I think that the thing about him is he's a tough kid, and he wears that Philly moniker really well. " Brown has eight catches for 95 yards and one touchdown in five games this season.

Defensive ends don't usually make game-winning interceptions downfield. Then again, Delandre Francis doesn't typically get on the football field with the game on the line, either. But on Thursday night at Northeast, Francis, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior for Southern, snagged glory and helped secure a 22-18 victory against host Mastbaum. An injury to Casey Williams, Southern's 6-foot-4, 225-pound offensive and defensive leader, thrust Francis into the lineup. With less than a minute to play in the Public League Liberty Division contest, Francis tracked Mastbaum quarterback Derrick McLean as he scrambled near midfield.

Different lineup, different result. Way different. Two nights after they suffered a six-goal loss in Florida, the Flyers rebounded Monday and defeated the same Panthers, 1-0, in their home opener at the loud, sold-out Wells Fargo Center. Emergency starter Michal Neuvirth, in his first career start for the Flyers, made 31 saves and recorded his first shutout since 2012, giving Dave Hakstol his first NHL coaching victory. "I was feeling good the whole day, and the guys did an outstanding job - they had great sticks and so many blocked shots," Neuvirth said.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Two nights after an embarrassing 7-1 loss in Florida, the Flyers have a chance at redemption Monday as they host the same Panthers in their home opener. The Flyers have started their season in familiar fashion: Two games, two losses. "It's early in the year, and the one thing that is absolute is that nobody's going to overreact," rookie coach Dave Hakstol said after the ugly loss Saturday prompted a players-only meeting that some might call overreaction. "You take this situation and you deal with it for what it is. Deal with it honestly, and most of those dealings will take place in the locker room.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Sunrise Boulevard isn't quite Packer Avenue, and Panther Parkway is by no means Broad Street. The roads that lead up to BB&T Center are filled with housing developments and a few shopping malls. The streets are lined with palm trees. Just west of the arena that houses the Florida Panthers are miles and miles of swamplands. This is where Peter Luukko chose to take on a challenge. The former president and chief operating officer of the Flyers and Comcast Spectacor was hired by the Panthers in February.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Two nights after an encouraging opener in which they salvaged a point against the defending Eastern Conference champions, the Flyers were overmatched and unready from the outset Saturday. Goalie Steve Mason, in what he called the worst start of his eight-year career, allowed four goals in the first 6 minutes, 46 seconds as the Flyers fell to the Florida Panthers, 7-1, before a sellout crowd at the BB&T Center. "There's nobody to put this game on except myself," Mason said, "and I take full responsibility for it. When your starting goaltender performs like that, it puts everybody behind the eight-ball right away.

Julianne DeCarlo called the moment "urgent. " Her Strath Haven soccer team needed a goal, and as one of the "rotating three" players who serve corner kicks, it was her chance to put the Panthers on the board against rival Conestoga. She put the ball down on the turf at Teamer Field and looked inside the 18-yard line. In flew Carly Glassford. In went the ball to the back of the net. The DeCarlo-Glassford connection struck twice Tuesday night, and the Panthers defeated the Pioneers, 3-1. "That's a big deal," Glassford said.
