The Philadelphia Eagles defense has been killed these last two weeks, and their run defense is now ranked 32nd in the league. The Carolina Panthers held around the Cowboys last week which is a moral victory in itself, and they're one of the better defenses in the league, ranked third in both scoring defense and total defense. It's a lot easier to trust the Panthers in this spot and were not being asked to lay anything crazy. Give me the Panthers and the small chalk.
