Thursday Night Football: Players/Matchups to Watch
WHY THIS WILL BE A GREAT GAME:
Luke Kuechly and Lavonte David:
Both teams have one of the best linebackers in the game. Kuechly gets more national recognition due to the Panthers having a better team but LVD has some of the best instincts I’ve ever seen and they’re nearly identical in stats.
Mike Evans vs James Bradberry:
Evans was very sick on Sunday against the 49ers and couldn’t hardly stay in. He’ll be looking for revenge against a CB who actually locked him up last season
Christian McCaffrey is the most exciting RB outside of Saquon in my opinion. Fast, athletic, and has great hands. He goes up against the best LB in college from last season in rookie Devin White. And of course Lavonte David.
Howard had the worst game of his career Sunday. Tipped pass led to INT and then a fumble. At 6’6 250 and a 4.50 40 yard dash, it’ll be a great matchup against Kuechly.
McCoy played for the Bucs for NINE seasons. Tampa got rid of him because they didn’t think his price tag of $13 mil was worth it… he’s already said some shady stuff this week. Bucs gave Suh his jersey number so he’ll be looking for revenge.
The 2nd year RB finally had a shot to run and had 93 yards of total offense. Jones had 77 all of last season thanks to Dirk Koetter not utilizing him.
