Watch Monday Night Football Patriots vs Panthers

The 6-3 Carolina Panthers have run off five consecutive wins and will try to stretch that streak to six games tonight on MNF against a tough 7-2 New England Patriots opponent. Tom Brady will face a defense stymied the 49ers offense for less than 10 points when we watch Patriots vs Panthers online free streaming live NFL Monday Night Football on ESPN by following the links presented below.

Last week the Patriots faced the Pittsburgh Steelers and collected more points than any other team this season has in a single game by winning 55-31. It was a snap back to form game for Brady who up until that point had put up some of the worst numbers of his career despite the Patriots favorable record. Brady threw for 432 yards and four touchdowns before entering the bye week to get some rest.

Helping give Brady and his team a boost has been running back Stevan Ridley. Over the past four games, Ridley has rushed for six touchdowns and provided consistency to an offense that was struggling to find it earlier in the season. Tonight Ridley will be tested by a Carolina defense that only allows an average of 82 yards per game on the ground, good enough for the second best mark in the league.

In last week’s 10-9 victory over the 49ers, the Carolina defense sacked Colin Kaepernick a total of six times to push their sack total to 29 on the season, the exact same number New England’s defense has generated. The Panthers defense has only given up an average of 12.8 points per game this season, so a match up against a Patriots squad coming off the highest point total by an NFL team this season when we watch Monday Night Football Patriots vs Panthers online free live streaming on ESPN is enticing to say the least.

Carolina’s quarterback Cam Newton has quietly led one of the most ball hogging offenses in the league. His Panthers offense has controlled the ball an average of 33 minutes per game, tops in the NFL, so Brady and the Patriots will have to find a way to extend their offensive possessions knowing that the Panthers have been incredibly strong at controlling the clock to their advantage and allowing their defense to rest.

Newton’s numbers have been steadily improving over the course of the 2013 season. His completion percentage is 67.4 over their five-game winning streak and his offense has outscored opponents 150-47 during that stretch. On the season Newton has 13 touchdown passes versus eight interceptions, but his quarterback rating still leaves room for improvement at 88.3, just a hair above his career average.
