The Panthers are coming off of a nice win last weekend against the Vikings. Came Newton played well and led the Panthers offense to the victory. The St. Louis Rams destroyed the Houston Texans last weekend. They knocked Matt Schaub out of the game and forced turnovers to get the victory. Both teams are coming off of real nice victories and this should be a close matchup.

Rams Player to Watch: Sam Bradford
Bradford has been playing well this season. He has completed 31 of 50 passes for 339 yards and 6 touchdowns in the last couple of games. He had struggled a little bit earlier in the season, but he has turned it around nicely the last couple of games.
Panthers Player to Watch: Cam Newton
Last week against the Minnesota Vikings, Newton completed 20 of 26 passes for 242 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also ran for 30 yards and a touchdown. That is the type of performance that the Carolina Panthers fans expect out of the number 1 draft pick.
If the Panthers can get that type of performance from Cam Newton again, they will be tough to stop. The Rams defense made some game changing plays last weekend and will sure to make some plays again this weekend, but the Panthers look like they are starting to figure some things out. Plus they are at home and have that fans on their side.
Panthers 24, Rams 17
