Carolina Panthers

Lions vs Panthers Preview

on

LionsThe Detroit Lions are set to travel to take on the Carolina Panthers in a game that sees both squads looking to pick up their 2nd win on the year, as the Lions are set to have their 1st road game, while the Panthers are set to have their home opener.

The Lions opened the season at home last week on Monday Night Football in a victory over the New York Giants by the score of 35-14 as the Lions showed off a potent offense. The Carolina Panthers played in a tough game down in Tampa Bay as they took on the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium and got a victory 20-14.

The Lions were led primarily by their offense through the air as quarterback Matthew Stafford, who had a strong game, connected with arguably the best wide receiver in the game today, Calvin Johnson, for 164 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Lions also boasted a strong defense in their Monday Night game as well, making the win over the Giants seem easy. The Lions will need that same production this week if they want to top the Panthers on the road.

The Panthers, on the other hand, dominated the game against the Bucs for most of the game, only letting the Bucs back into the game late in the 4th quarter. The Panthers got the win last week without quarterback Cam Newton, who is set to return to the starting lineup for Sunday’s game.

The line for this game is set in favor of the Panthers by 2.5 points, while the over/under is set at 44 points for the contest.

The Panthers are favored to win this game, and the contest will be close to say the least. I expect this to be one of the best games of week 2, with the Lions winning 27-24.
