Philadelphia Eagles @ Minnesota Vikings – 10/13 1:00 PM ET

Noah Gatsik, SIS Operations Associate:

Historically, Kirk Cousins has played his best against the Philadelphia Eagles. In eight career games against them, he has thrown 17 TDs to 5 INTs. The Eagles are still very short handed in the secondary in a matchup that is very favorable for the Vikings on paper. Last year when these 2 teams played, Diggs and Thielen combined for 17 catches, 206 yards, and a TD (Thielen 116 Yards and 1 TD). Given the recent well-known struggles of the Vikings passing attack in 2019, this is likely their best opportunity to get the passing offense back on track and right the ship (pun intended).

Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 10/13 9:30 AM ET

Britton Mann , SIS Football Video Scout:

The Panthers are traveling overseas to London this week for a divisional matchup against the Buccaneers. Christian McCaffrey has helped lead the team to victories the last few games by being the workhorse. The formula does not change this week. McCaffrey’s versatility in the offense is what makes this group dangerous. He leads the league in yards from scrimmage and will need to continue his barrage of receptions and tough carries to extend the Panthers winning streak.
