NFL

Matchup of the Day-Green Bay Packers v Carolina Panthers

Bank of America Stadium; Charlotte, North Carolina, 1:00 PM

TV: FOX

For the first time since the 2011 season, the Packers will go to the Carolina's to play the Panthers in a match where Cam Newton plays against Aaron Rodgers. The Panthers are 7-0, and have played teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers, whereas the Green Bay Packers are 6-1 lost to a Peyton Manning-of old, Denver Broncos in week seven. The Panthers have a history of struggling against the Packers, which asks the question: Do the Packers shake off last week and win, or will the Panthers go to 8-0?
