Panthers Present Prowess
The Carolina Panthers completed 2nd within the NFC South final season posting a lower than formidable 7-10 report after beginning with 4 defeats of their first 5 video games. The Panthers season ended with out playoff involvement for the fifth 12 months operating, so why on earth have we put them down as an outdoor tip to do effectively subsequent season?
Two phrases. Bryce Younger. Regardless of not being notably tall and never being notably bodily imposing the previous Alabama and now Panthers QB has all of the expertise to go on and change into the largest expertise within the NFL.
He bobs and weaves within the pocket like Mahomes, however he has extra of an instinctive capacity to seek out himself in house and create house for his teammates than the Chiefs QB.

The Eagles Doesn’t Soar

Within the 31 years since, while I can fortunately declare my capacity to sleep via the evening and crawl, the Lions wouldn’t have a single, solitary playoff win to their identify since that January day in 1992. All of that may change this season, mark our phrases.
The Lions will construct on a powerful end to final season and go on to finish their uncomfortably lengthy wiat for a playoff win.
Bijan Robinson Takes Off
