Who has the edge? Eagles-Panthers scouting report and prediction | Paul Domowitch

Carson Wentz is slowly but surely returning to 2017 form. He’s ninth in the league in completion percentage (68.4) and has thrown just one interception in 158 attempts. After leading the league in third-down passing last year, he’s currently fourth (109.3) after a 13-for-14, 167-yard, 2 TD third-down performance against the Giants. Wentz’s ability to extend plays puts pressure on opposing secondaries to hold their coverage, as evidenced by his 13-yard TD pass to Alshon Jeffery last week. Jeffery has 18 catches and three TDs in three starts since returning from shoulder surgery. Fourteen of his 18 catches have resulted in first downs or touchdowns. The Eagles have used 12 (two TEs) and 13 (3 TEs) personnel 50.4 percent of the time this season, and have thrown out of those groupings 60.8 percent of the time. Wentz has a 113.1 passer rating with 12/13 personnel. The Panthers have had problems this season defending tight ends in the passing game.
