We have our first split of significance this season.
The prognosticators' collective picks this week sound a little bit like a final score, but not one that the Panthers want any part of: Baltimore 23, Carolina 17.
The two solo analysts in the panel both picked the Panthers, but the Ravens pulled away thanks to a pretty surprising six of seven analysts at SB Nation backing Baltimore. For what it's worth, the "wisdom of the crowd" worked for each of the Panthers' first four games but hasn't for the last two, with the group incorrectly picking Carolina to beat Washington and lose to Philadelphia. The Panthers hope that losing streak continues this week.
