BC Football: Eagles in the NFL Week 7
Veterans Luke Kuechly and Matt Ryan helped their respective teams keep pace in the NFC South standings as the regular season nears the midway point. The Panthers pulled off a 21-17, come-from-behind victory over the Eagles and the Falcons picked of the Giants, 23-20, on Monday Night Football. Kuechly and the Panthers (4-2) sit a game back of the division-leading New Orleans Saints (5-1), who defeated the Ravens on Sunday, while Ryan and the Falcons (3-4) remain at the bottom of the division, but have won back-to-back games.
