Pro Football Network: Cowboys 27, Panthers 23

Ben Rolfe writes: "This game is hard to judge. The rest disparity should suit the Panthers, who will be eyeing an opportunity to complete the Texas two-step in Week 4. Carolina’s offense needs to find a way to succeed without Christian McCaffrey if the team is to keep winning."

Sportsnaut: Cowboys 24, Panthers 20

Andrew Buller-Russ writes: "Talk about a matchup between two extremes. Dallas’ offense has an ability to dominate on a consistent basis. Meanwhile, the Panthers’ defense has given up a total of 30 points during their 3-0 start to the season. Not having Christian McCaffrey due to his hamstring injury could set the Panther offense back. In what should be a close game, we’ll go with the home team."

Fansided: Cowboys 30, Panthers 27

Tyrone Starr writes: "A second-straight home game for the Dallas Cowboys that may not, at first, seem troublesome. With this game sandwiched between two divisional games and a sneakily high-powered Panthers offense coming to town, this will be another slow start that ends in a too-close-for-comfort finish."

Teddy Ricketson writes: "Without Christian McCaffrey under center, the Panthers' offense lost its identity. Sam Darnold lost his safety blanket and it took the team more than a quarter to get back on track against the Houston Texans. Going into the matchup with the Cowboys, the Panthers lost their best player. The Cowboys' offense has been electric under Dak Prescott and even though the Panthers' defense is stout, the Cowboys can hurt you from many different areas. It will be interesting to see how much the loss of rookie cornerback Jaycee Horn impacts the Panthers’ defense. Cowboys should still be able to cover in this one."

Sportsnaut: Cowboys 31, Panthers 28

Matt Johnson writes: "If you’re looking for a matchup with highlight plays and plenty of scoring, this will be the game to watch. Carolina’s secondary should be more consistent in 2021, but it’s still very inexperienced and star players will make plays against it. Ultimately, this comes down to Prescott vs. Sam Darnold."

Dallas News: Cowboys 20, Panthers 3

Calvin Watkins writes: "Cowboys must handle their business at home. Dak Prescott needs his offense to be in a cohesive groove entering October. The Cowboys’ defense should provide coordinator Dan Quinn with some comfort that they’ve worked out early-season issues. Did we say Sam Darnold is the Panthers quarterback?"
