The last time the Philadelphia Eagles were in Charlotte, it was a great night.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers have met on the field for a football game 12 times. There’s been a different winner in each of the past six contests.

That technically includes the last game of a three-game winning streak by Philadelphia from 2004 to 2009 and that Birds collapse that occurred almost three years ago when Philly blew a 17-point lead by giving up 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter at home.

No one wants to talk about that though. Instead, we’ll focus on that Thursday night game when these two met in 2017 en route to a 28-23 Birds win. Also, if you’re superstitious and want to put any stock in that alternating wins theory, Philly should be due for a win on the ledger.

Some say that it was the aforementioned Thursday Night Football squabble between these two that began the talk that Philly had the makings of a championship team. The stakes figure to be much lower this time around in their next meeting, but if you’re a little superstitious like most sports fans are, again, the Birds are due a win.

As a matter of fact, with the veteran presence that Philly has, they should be able to will themselves and the youngsters on the Birds’ roster to a home win over an improving Panthers team that’s still a year away from being a factor.

Final score: Eagles 27, Panthers 17 (2021-2022 Eagles record: 2-3)
