With rookie quarterback Nick Foles and running back Bryce Brown, a seventh-round pick out of Kansas State, making his first start since high school, the Philadelphia Eagles will try for their first win in two months. No wonder even the Carolina Panthers (2-8) are favored on the road ( 5:30 p.m., ESPN). The struggling Eagles (3-7) have lost six straight games entering Monday night’s matchup against Cam Newton and the Panthers. They won’t have Michael Vick or LeSean McCoy because of concussions, increasing the chances they can go zero for October and November for the first time in coach Andy Reid’s 14-year tenure. – AP
