As the Philadelphia Eagles look to win their second straight game, here are three keys to a win over the Carolina Panthers when they come to town on Sunday.

After looking very sluggish for the first five weeks of the season, the Philadelphia Eagles put together their best game of the season in a 34-13 win over the New York Giants last Thursday night. The Giants, are of course, not very good. So we will get a better gauge of where the Eagles are on Sunday when the Carolina Panthers come to town.

Facing the Eagles will be Cam Newton and the Panthers. Carolina sits at 3-2 on the season as they are coming off a loss to the Washington Redskins last week. They will be looking to bounce back and avoid falling to 3-3 on the season.

For the Eagles, this will be a big game as well as they want to avoid falling back under .500 on the season. Quarterback Carson Wentz has looked better in each game this season and will look to make that trend continue on Sunday.

Just like last year’s matchup, this has the looks to be a highly contested and close football game. These are two very good football teams who are in need of wins in very tight division races. A loss could hurt greatly whoever falls in this game.

How will these teams fare and who will win this game? In addition, what are the big keys the Eagles must execute to win this game? Continue on for our three keys to an Eagles win plus a prediction!
