Cam Newton and Ron Rivera will be meeting this coming Sunday in what would be some sort of a reunion. Will Newton lead the Carolina Panthers to a win over his former head coach’s current squad, the Washington Football Team? Or will Rivera steer Washington to another win? Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Washington Football Team vs Carolina Panthers Regular Season Week 11 Game on November 21, 2021
Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte
When: Sunday, November 21, 2021, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Washington Football Team (+3)
Regular Season Record: 3-6
Washington caught a big fish in Week 10, as the Football Team stopped their four-game losing streak with a loud 29-19 upset win at home over the defending Super Bowl champions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Running back Antonio Gibson rushed for two touchdowns, while quarterback Taylor Heinicke went 26/32 for 256 passing yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions. Heinicke isn’t a flashy quarterback, but he can get the job done in a surprisingly efficient manner at times; Washington went 11/19 on third downs against the Bucs and had 13 passing first downs. By shocking the Buccaneers, Washington becomes some sort of an unpredictable team and a middling squad like the Panthers now looks very beatable for the Football Team. However, Washington has just lost Chase Young for likely the rest of the season after suffering a lower-body injury in Week 10.
Washington is 4-1 against the spread in its five games in Week 11.
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (-3)
Regular Season Record: 5-5
Cam Newton didn’t waste much time to make a huge positive impact on the Panthers. In his first game back with Carolina, Newton rushed for a touchdown and passed for another in the Panthers’ 34-10 road win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. Newton did not start against the Cardinals perhaps because he’s not yet that familiar with the playbook, but there shouldn’t be anything to stop him from assuming the starting gig in Week 11 against Washington. Newton’s dual-threat capabilities and the return of Christian McCaffrey from injury are expected to make things happen on offense for the Panthers, who generated a total of 341 yards from scrimmage against the Cardinals and also picked up 24 first downs. Carolina’s defense will be waiting for its chance to suppress the Football Team’s offense. The Panthers are fourth in the NFL against third down tries and eighth in total defense.
The Panthers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven November games.
The Panthers win, 24-23.
