An important TNF game? Eagles, Panthers play for top of NFC

7:30 AM ET

Thursday Night Football has a bad reputation — much of it earned — but this week’s game looks like a doozy.

The Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) drop in on the Carolina Panthers (4-1) in Charlotte to kick off Week 6, and you don’t need to be a mathematician to figure out that the winner will be 5-1. ESPN Stats Information says that if the Eagles win, they’ll have a 34 percent chance to go on to earn the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, whereas they’ll have only a 10 percent chance with a loss. If the Panthers win, their chances of nabbing the NFC’s top seed improve to 23 percent, compared to 5 percent if they lose.

So yeah, it’s only the sixth week, but this is a pretty big game.
