The Carolina Panthers bring an unbeaten record into tonight’s Monday Night Football match up with the Indianapolis Colts.
The Panthers seem to have overcome their rough patches from last season when they went two months without a victory and come into tonight’s game with a 6-0 record. Not only are they undefeated, but the Panthers have also won the last 10 regular season games in a row, which is the longest streak in the NFL. The team currently leads the NFC South.
But Carolina isn’t the only team leading their division. Indianapolis also heads up the AFC South. However, their season has not been quite as impressive. The Colts hold a 3-4 record and are looking to snap their two-game losing streak. Colts reporter Mike Wells doesn’t think the Colts are making any forward progress.
The Colts have also come under heat recently for allowing quarterback Andrew Luck to play with multiple fractured ribs. The NFL is currently investigating whether Indianapolis violated any rules by not making Luck’s injuries public knowledge. But at least fans have somewhat of an explanation for the team’s struggles. Luck is still set to start in tonight’s game.
In addition to his injuries, Luck has his work cut out for him against the Panthers’ aggressive defense. Panthers’ Kawann Short leads the league in sacks among defensive tackles and Lotulelei Star currently holds the title of NFC Defensive Player of the Month.
Kick off is set for 8:30 PM in North Carolina and will air on ESPN.
