2.) Adam Thielen vs. Dallas Cowboys

Just when things couldn't get worse for the Carolina Panthers after losing to the Chicago Bears last week on Thursday night, they will have the unfortunate pleasure of welcoming the Dallas Cowboys with their ferocious defense that wideout Adam Thielen will face.

In the first six games of the season, Thielen managed to get into the endzone four times. However, since the Panthers’ bye week in Week 7, Thielen has yet to reach the endzone. He has been targeted a double digit amount of times throughout the season and there should be no reason why that does not continue this week.

The only issue is that the defense for Dallas is very physical and rookie quarterback Bryce Young has been struggling against mediocre defenses’ all season. Trusting Young and his ability to make a play against the Cowboys’ defense is the biggest mistake for anyone to believe. Much like Godwin going up against the 49ers, it really comes down to whether or not Young can break free from any pass rush which is a lot when it comes to Dallas.
