The Rams and Panthers will meet on Sunday after both teams blew out their opponents in Week 6. The Panthers dominated the Vikings with a score of 35-10 in Minnesota, while the Rams dismantled the Texans 38-13 in Houston. The Carolina will host this Week 7 matchup that features two teams looking to get back into the race for their respective divisions.

The Panthers is viewed as the 6.5-point favorite at home against the Rams. For five of the eight panelist at CBS Sports, that spread is too high and they favor the Rams with the points. However, when picking straight up, the entire panel chose Carolina. The Yahoo! Sports two-man crew is split in this matchup with one vote for each team.

The SB Nation team of five panelists had no problems deciding on a clear-cut winner. The panel voted 5-0 in favor of the Panthers.
