Patriots-Panthers best MNF game of year?

November, 11, 2013
The Carolina Panthers' 10-9 road victory over the San Francisco 49ers was their fifth in a row, making them one of the NFL's hottest teams. One of the lingering questions about the Panthers was if their early-season success was a result of a weaker schedule but Sunday's result smashes that line of thinking.

With this in mind, here's a question we pondered this morning: Is next Monday's game between the 7-2 Patriots and 6-3 Panthers the best yet on ESPN's "Monday Night Football"?

The thought here: Yes.
