The first 100-yard receiving game of Jordan Matthews' career came last November against Carolina, and it remains his finest game in an Eagles uniform. Matthews finished with seven catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-21 rout of the Panthers. Entering another nationally televised game against Carolina on Sunday night, the Eagles could use a similar performance from Matthews. He is a key part of the Eagles' game plan each week, but he might have to carry more of the weight for the receiving corps this time.

PANTHERS (-3) over Eagles Nailed the Birds last week, but not gonna go back-to-back with them. The good news is, they get to play in front of the biggest TV audience on a Sunday night. But the bad news is, they have to play at Carolina. The Panthers are the picture of perfection so far this season with a 5-0 record (4-1 against the spread). Since head coach Ron Rivera turned the switch toward the end of last season at New Orleans, these Southern cats have not lost a game.

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.

A RUN-BASED offense against the Eagles' defense is a matchup Eagles fans should welcome. So I have my work cut out for me in explaining why I'm picking the Panthers this week. One reason is that it isn't a conventional run-based offense, in which Fletcher Cox can just sort through offensive linemen until he comes across a running back to pulverize. Quarterback Cam Newton has 50 carries - the same number as Ryan Mathews - and he has gained 225 rushing yards, only 20 fewer than Mathews.

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.

EAGLES DEFENSIVE coordinator Billy Davis called Sunday night's visit to Carolina a "big boy game. " Since the Panthers run the ball about 32 times a game and they have one of football's most dangerous tight ends, his point is easy to see. When it comes to defending opposing tight ends, Davis' defense has shown there are plenty of XXL slacks in their closet. When Ben Watson scored for New Orleans two games ago, he became the first tight end to reach the end zone against the Birds since Jack Doyle of Indianapolis in Week 2 last year.

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.

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.
