Carolina is aiming to bounce back from a weak offensive performance against the Eagles in which quarterback Sam Darnold threw three interceptions. With Christian McCaffrey set to return this week from injury, Carolina's offense should fall back into its groove.
Despite Darnold's three interceptions last week, the strong Carolina defense forced two turnovers of its own and Haason Reddick secured two sacks on back-to-back plays. With the addition of cornerback Stephon Gilmore this week, acquired from the Patriots in a trade, Carolina's defense takes another step up.
Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins has 1,396 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. Dalvin Cook has rushed for just 226 yards so far.
The offensive weapons of Justin Jefferson, who has 33 catches for 462 yards and three touchdowns, and Adam Thielen, who has 26 receptions for 267 yards and four touchdowns, have kept the Minnesota offense afloat.
