NFL: Carolina Panthers at New England Patriots Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) and Carolina Panthers (4-1) will be battling for NFC supremacy early in the season. If both teams continue their winning ways, the winner of this game could hold the keys to homefield advantage in the conference.

The Eagles might have the advantage defensively, having faced a similar offense in the Kansas City Chiefs this season, even if that was a game they lost. The Panthers are not nearly as potent on offense as the Chiefs.

On the other side, the Panthers defense has been making plays. That is the premier matchup in this game. The Eagles offense is in the top ten in most important categories, while the Panthers defense is in the top ten on their side.

This should be a good game. It will be interesting to see which side is able to gain the momentum early on.
