With just three games remaining, the Panthers need to run the table to better their record from a year ago and there is chance that could happen with the Raiders next week and Saints in the season finale. But before Carolina can look ahead to either of those games they have to take down a Chargers team that just might be having a more disappointing season despite having one more victory than the Panthers.

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?
