Through two weeks, Thursday Night Football has followed the same script with the home favourite winning a very close game but failing to cover.
This week will see part of that trend come to an end with the visiting Carolina Panthers favoured over the Houston Texans as they chase a 3-0 start to the season. Matt Rhule's boys began their title drive with home victories over the New York Jets (19-14) and New Orleans Saints (26-7).
It’s not an ideal situation for Houston with rookie Davis Mills set to be forced into action much earlier than anyone expected after Tyrod Taylor’s injury. The Jaguars began the new season with a 37-22 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars but lost at Cleveland 31-21 last week.
Carolina’s defence will make life very tough on Mills having held Jameis Winston to 111 passing yards last week and two interceptions.
