Panthers vs Texans Prediction And Odds: Preview

Carolina Panthers:

Carolina Panthers are prospering on the back of their young players this season. The Panthers drafted a star quarterback in the name of Sam Darnold to kick-start their season on the right tone. Darnold looked sleek while moving the ball against the Jets, something which is expected from a quality quarterback. Darnold danced his way around the shorter routes as he paved the way for a comfortable win against the Jets.

Darnold was seen taking deep shots as he partnered up brilliantly with his former teammate Robby Anderson for a 57-yard touchdown. Darnold finished the game with a total of 110 yards with three passes over 20 yards. Christian McCaffery and DJ Moore had 8 targets, and they also combined for 12 receptions. Anderson had an off game with just three targets.

McCaffrey was seemingly enjoying his game the other night against the Jets. He had a total of 27 touches. He also covered 171 yards in the offense. The Panthers played a strong game and barring few weak spots, they look set for the season.

Houston Texans:

It didn’t take the Houston Texans much longer to silence their critics who were predicting a winless season for them. The Texans were in control of the game and made life difficult for the Jaguars. However, the young Carolina side has more experience and momentum than Texans’ previous oppositions. It is not going to be an easy job for the Texans to halt Carolina’s offense, especially the likes of McCaffery. Carolina’s Darnold can have a field day against a slow-paced Houston.

Houston Texans have one of the worst defensive lines in the leagues and they are expected to struggle against the heavy Carolina’s trio. Texans have experienced players like Tyrod Taylor in the offense. Taylor is expected to lift the Texans’ offense this season. He played well against the Jaguars but Carolina will be a much difficult challenge. Taylor had a total of 291 yards and two scores while playing the ball downfield. Brandin Cooks, on the other hand, had a field day as he covered 132 yards on five occasions.

Houston will be playing their first away match of the season. Both the teams are tipped to finish last in their division in NFL 2021. However, the Carolina side are going to be the surprise package of the season and they are seemingly going to finish above everyone’s expectation this season.
