The Carolina Panthers play host to the St. Louis Rams this weekend. The Rams have bounced back from a 1-3 start to get to .500 and the Panthers are looking to get to .500 themselves with a win over the Rams.
Unfortunately for the Rams their two win streak comes over the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans, not necessarily an impressive run. The Texans do boast a tough pass defense, and over coming that is not easy.
“They really never lost their confidence, they just lost games,” coach Jeff Fisher said, via ESPN.
The Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton know they have a tough day ahead of them.
“We know our hands are going to be full against a team that’s also coming off a big win, but if we get a lot of help from our fans and execute up to our capabilities, we’ll be OK,” Newton told the team’s official website.
“We’re all excited about getting the opportunity to play at (home). It feels like it’s been a long time, but at the same time we’re coming in with a little bit of momentum. That’s what you want.”
