CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A quick turnaround didn't affect the Philadelphia Eagles after all Thursday night.
They earned their fourth straight victory, 28-23 over Carolina at Bank of America Stadium, just four days after earning their third. On Sunday, they defeated Arizona 34-7.
With Thursday's win, the Eagles (5-1) strengthened their status as one of the teams to beat in the NFC. They took over sole possession of first place in the conference ahead of Green Bay (4-1) and Atlanta (3-1).
The Panthers dropped to 4-2.
"It's a tremendous testament to the players in that locker room," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. "Just the overall consistency from the leaders on this football team. It's a fun thing to watch."
