Week 10 of the 2014 – 2015 NFL season closes out Monday night on ESPN when the Carolina Panthers come in to Philadelphia to face the Eagles.
The conference matchup is an important one for both teams. Both teams will be looking to add another notch to their “W” column. Philadelphia is currently 6 – 2 on the season. Carolina on the other hand, is currently 3 – 5 on the season. So a win will mean just as much for both teams. For Carolina, it would mean being one game closer to getting back in the black. For Philadelphia, it would be another important step towards the team’s playoff hopes for this season. Philadelphia is 3 – 1 in its last five games and 3 – 2 against conference opponents. Against non-conference foes, Philly is 3 – 0. Carolina is 3 – 3 so far in conference play and have gone 0 – 3 – 1 in its last five games. It has lost its last three games, too. So a win against a conference foe Monday night would be just as big for the Eagles as for the Panthers as the season progresses.
Adding to the storylines for Monday’s game, Philadelphia is undefeated at home so far this season, going 4 – 0 at home. Carolina on the other hand is 1 – 2 – 1 on the road. That means that Carolina will come in to Monday night’s game very much the underdog. Interestingly enough, Cam Newton is a perfect 2 – 0 on Monday Night Football as are the Eagles and head coach Chip Kelly. This makes Monday night’s matchup all the more exciting for fans.
Mike Tirico will have the call for Monday night’s game. He will be joined in the booth by analyst Jon Gruden. ESPN will have more than five hours of coverage for Monday night’s game before kickoff. It all leads up to Monday night’s pregame coverage on Monday Night Countdown at 6pm ET. Suzy Kolber will anchor that broadcast. She will be joined by NFL analysts Trent Dilfer, Ray Lewis, and Steve Young. Studio host Chris Berman will be joined by NFL analysts Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, Tom Jackson, and Keyshawn Johnson and ESPN NFL Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.
