The Panthers suffered a somewhat-surprising and one-sided defeat in Week Three at home against the Steelers.
The Lions have long been one of the most difficult teams in the NFL to figure out, but they look somewhat better early in the 2014 season.
The Packers have had an edge in this series, and the superb play of Aaron Rodgers is one of the main reasons they have been able to exert their influence.
The Giants hope that they can ignite their offense by going on the road against a divisional opponent. Eli Manning finally got it going a bit in Week Three against the Texans, and the Giants need him to keep it going or they will have another lost season.

When he was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1985, no-one expected Steve Tasker to last very long in the NFL.

He knows what it takes overcome adversity, but when it comes to this week’s game on Thursday Night Football, Tasker isn’t sure the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can overcome the strong Atlanta Falcons.
While Jay Cutler lacks consistency, he is capable of taking over any game and carrying the Bears with his strong arm when he gets on a roll.

The Chiefs picked it up quite a bit in losing a 24-17 decision at Denver, and that should be encouraging to Andy Reid and quarterback Alex Smith.
The 49ers let a 17-0 lead against the Chicago Bears slip away, and while it was not all Colin Kaepernick’s fault, it was clear that he bore quite a bit of responsibility from the look on his face while standing on the sidelines and from a statistical point of view.
