Thursday Night football features a matchup between two NFC South opponents who are looking to get back on track after a Week 1 loss. Bruce Arians and Jameis Winston looked helpless against the 49ers defense, surrendering three interceptions in a 31-17 loss.

Carolina almost snuck out an upset against the defending NFC Champion Rams, just falling 30-27. The injury riddled Cam Newton is still the focal point of this Panthers offense, alongside do it all running back Christian McCaffrey.
