Eagles beat Carolina Panthers, 28-23, improve to 5-1

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If any skepticism remained about the start to the Eagles’ season, it should have vanished by the time Jalen Mills intercepted Cam Newton’s pass in the final minutes of the 28-23 win over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Or maybe the doubt disappeared on the previous two interceptions, or after any of Carson Wentz’s three touchdown passes.

What cannot be disputed is that the Eagles are 5-1 and appear to be one of the best teams in the NFL, a distinction strengthened with a statement win on the road over the Panthers on a short week.
