Kansas City Chiefs
Head coach Ron Rivera pretty much put the kibosh on running back Jonathan Stewart being available to play in Kansas City but with the ground game the way it has been all season, quarterback Cam Newton will more than likely lead the team in rushing once again. DeAngelo Williams wilkl be hard pressed to match him yard for yard.
It’s 3-8 against 1-10 this Sunday. This is an important game for the Panthers––a loss to the Chiefs would just about signal the end of Ron Rivera’s run as head coach. All things being equal, this is a winnable game for Carolina despite playing in Kansas City, where a lot of teams have had trouble doing just that.
The Panthers have had their fair share of injuries this season, so once again they have to reach into their bag of reserves and pluck out second-year tackle Sione Fua to take over for Ron Edwards, who is gone for the season with a dislocated elbow. Meanwhile, running back DeAngelo Williams is getting the reps while Jonathan Stewart nurses his second high ankle injury of the year.
Eleven. That is the number of Panthers on injured reserve–an average of one per game. Now, Ron Edwards is the latest to join the not-so-exclusive club. But through it all, head coach Ron Rivera has tried to hold his team together while doing his best to help his young quarterback get through the trials and tribulations of a sophomore campaign.

Even the most optimistic Panthers’ fan will look at the upcoming schedule and probably think, “No way they can win the next four.” Those games are outside the NFC South and each team has their own agendas when it comes to making the playoffs. It could prove difficult for Carolina to begin turning 2012 around.
The Panthers have a week off and maybe their fans might just need a week away from their television sets. If they do turn it on, will they root against the Buccaneers and Falcons, the only NFC South teams in action, or will they look in to see how other teams score more than their opponents?

Earlier this summer Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought an ad in the paper stating that he thought the Panthers could make it to the Super Bowl. Obviously with Kalil doing his best Don Draper impersonation, this fired up the fans of the team with thoughts of returning to the big game almost a decade after the Panthers’ first appearance in a Super Bowl. Well, there is one way and one way only for Carolina to get Super Bowl bound, and that is to make the playoffs. So how do the Panthers make the playoffs?
