That's a close call. Statistically, the Panthers have performed very well over the last several weeks on defense, and they get a lot of turnovers (10 in the last 6 games), and they limited Peyton Manning to 14 points last week, his lowest total since week 2. Also, consider that Freeman only put up 10 points against Carolina earlier this year.
I'm not sure Romo's a much better option, though, because I think the Cowboys are going to try to run quite a bit, and Romo hasn't put up a lot of numbers this year. Combine that with the Cowboys tendancy to play down to the opponent's level, and Romo might not do much, though if Haden doens't play, this might be his best game of the year, you just never know with the Cowboys.
Freeman is the better performer, but Romo has the better matchup.
