Eagles-Panthers Gives "TNF" Fans Hope With Marquee Matchup

"Thursday Night Football" has a "bad reputation -- much of it earned" -- but tonight's Eagles-Panthers game "looks like a doozy." With both teams heading into tonight with a 4-1 record, this "should be fun," as football fans have a "rare marquee Thursday night matchup" (ESPN.com, 10/12). The NFL has "had its share of Thursday night duds," but tonight "feels different." This could even be a "potential playoff preview" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/12).

Meanwhile, nearly 100 pastors and community leaders "plan to take part in a 'Kneel-In' outside of Bank of America Stadium" before tonight's Eagles-Panthers "TNF" matchup in an effort to "highlight police brutality and social injustice." The protest is slated to begin at 7:30pm ET (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/12).
