The Eagles come in to tonight's game in first place in the NFC East. They hope to maintain their one game lead over the Dallas Cowboys with a win this evening. The Eagles are hoping that they can find the same magic in the arm of former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez that they found last season in Nick Foles. Starter Foles was injured in last weeks game and is expected to miss the next six weeks. In relief of Foles the Eagles saw both the good and the old bad from Sanchez who went 15 of 22 for 202 yards with 2 touchdowns but like the Mark of old they also saw him throw two passes to the other team. This will count as Sanchez's first start since December of 2012. The Eagles are also going for their 9th regular season home win in a row.

Despite their under .500 record the Panthers are only a game back in their division behind the Saints who lost yesterday. With a win this evening they will still hold on to a legitimate shot at winning their offense despite their poor record of 3, 5 and 1. To win tonight they must find a bit of that stout defense that they played last season. They are giving up over 130 yards per game on the ground over their last 4 games and will be facing the Eagles LeSean McCoy who is averaging over 5 yards a carry in his last three games. Also hoping for a rebound will be starting Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Newton was a horrible 10 of 28 for 151 with an interception last week against the Saints. Newton has also gone two games in a row  without a touchdown pass going in to this evenings contest.
