Monday Night Football Open Thread: Carolina Panthers vs Philadelphia Eagles

Join us below for live updates and instant analysis of tonight's MNF contest!

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The second half of the NFL season is where divisional races start heating up, and tonight, the Philadelphia Eagles (6-2) are trying to stay atop the NFC East.

Currently, the Dallas Cowboys (7-3) are sitting in 2nd place, followed by the surprisingly disappointing New York Giants (3-6) and Washington (3-6).

The Eagles are taking on the 3-5-1 Carolina Panthers, who, despite their losing record, are only a half game back in the NFC South (the Saints are 4-5).

To the casual viewer, this game won't exactly excite too many people, but for each team, it could have huge implications. Besides, we'll get to see at least one team who can execute an offense, and another who has a decent defense.

We'll take a break from the pitchfork-wielding and fire-setting theme on WCG for the next few hours, then continue our regularly scheduled petitioning thereafter.

This is your Monday Night Football Open Thread... Have fun!
