Top NFL Rumors and News From Week 14
Should Carolina Rest Some Players Or Go All Out For Their Fans?The Carolina Panthers remain undefeated, but their 13-0 record begs NFL betting fans to question as to whether they should rest some of their key contributors in order to keep them from getting hurt or try to finish the season without a loss. In press conferences, head coach Ron Rivera has not seemed all that worried about things, but it is worth asking what he plans to do with some of the key contributors who had minor injuries against Atlanta last week, such as running back Jonathan Stewart, who has a foot sprain, and tight end Greg Olsen, who banged up his knee.
It makes sense to rest Stewart, especially given his fragile history. It’s true that Cam Newton has played well without a standout wide receiver, but losing Olsen could put the Panthers close to their first loss. So if you’re planning on betting on NFL action this week, watch those two names in their injury report before you put down your money on the Carolina game.
