The Carolina Panthers travel to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys in this Week 4 matchup on Sunday, October 3, 2021.
Ask anyone if they thought the Panthers would be undefeated after three weeks of NFL action, and the majority (if not all) would say no.
Quarterback Sam Darnold has revived his career under the tutelage of Panthers head coach Matt Rhule.
The @Panthers are 3-0 thanks to sound decisions on 3-step drops by QB Sam Darnold. Here, @GregCosell highlights his ability to make pre-snap adjustments and take what the defense gives him on this zig/smash route to @idjmoore.#KeepPounding | #NFL | @MattBowen41 pic.twitter.com/Gv3H2DhYsC

Two Powerful Offenses Will Clash
This game will be about which offense controls the line of scrimmage and time of possession.
Both are high-powered offenses, though the Panthers are without the services of their star running back Christian McCaffrey.
#Panthers star RB Christian McCaffrey is expected to miss a few weeks, sources say, as the team continues to run tests on his hamstring injury suffered last night. IR is not the plan as of now. Rookie Chuba Hubbard is the next man up.

McCaffrey is expected to miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury though the team is not putting him on IR.
They are hoping he can recover sooner rather than later.
The Cowboys have Ezekiel Elliott who is noticeably trimmer and quicker this year.
His motivation could be Tony Pollard who is his backup running back.
Many thought Pollard had more spark and explosiveness in 2020 than Elliott did.
Elliott describes their relationship as a brotherhood.
Ezekiel Elliott on being happy for Tony Pollard’s success: “It’s a brotherhood. Every week we all got the same goal … win football games. I see the work he puts in. He’s one of the hardest workers on the team, and he’s very talented. He deserves to go out there and play well.”

The NFC East, the laughingstock of the NFL in 2020, is a lot more competitive this season.
The Cowboys are in first place at 2-1 but both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Team are right behind them at 1-2.
As for the 3-0 Panthers, they are one game ahead of the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers; both teams are 2-1.
Both teams view this as a must-win game to stay ahead in their respective divisions.NEXT: How To Watch Chiefs Vs. Eagles 2021 Week 4 Live Stream (Radio, TV)
