Matt Flynn Hopes His NFL Travels End In Oakland

Fans of the Oakland Raiders know the phrase “quarterback competition” almost more than any other in the English language. That is no different for the 2013 season, but Matt Flynn hopes that the competition ends his well-traveled career and ends with him.

Panthers’ Payback: Keep Brees Out Of Record Book

The Panthers and Saints will not be playing past this weekend as both will miss the playoffs, but there are some interesting story lines to watch for. Does Carolina go for a knockout blow against Drew Brees for New Orleans targeting Cam Newton last year or do they simply try to keep him etching his name in the record book – again?

Panthers Notch Their First Three Game Streak Since 2009

It was a day not fit for man nor beast, and that was just the yellow flags that were raining down on their heads. A plethora of personal fouls ruined an otherwise boring game but in the end the Carolina Panthers did something no one thought possible a few short weeks ago and that was matching last year’s win total.

Without Seymour, Raiders Left Defenseless Against ‘Healthier’ Panthers

Defense has not been a trademark of the 2012 Raiders, having given up 402 points in 14 games, so it will be no surprise if they add to that inflated number this weekend. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour has somehow stayed on the active roster all season, despite missing the last six contests, and he will be out again when his team tries to slow down the recharged Panthers.

Offense Challenged Raiders Ripe For The Picking In Panther Final Home Game Of 2012

The world did not come to an end as the Mayans had predicted, so that is good news for the Panthers as they get to play a downtrodden Raiders team on Sunday to close out their home schedule. After a brutal start to the season, Carolina is one win away from matching their record from a year ago and have a chance to better it with one game remaining on the docket.

Panthers’ Win Against Eagles Was Costly

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.

Panthers’ LB Kenny Onatolu Out For Season, But WR David Gettis Is Nearing First Action Since 2010

With the Dallas Cowboys coming to town, the Panthers would like to have as many healthy bodies as possible when they face them on Sunday. Unfortunately, they lost yet another player to injured reserve, a key player is still hobbled and his availability is in doubt but the news wasn’t all bad as they could get another target for Cam Newton back as early as next week.

Panthers Road Ahead A Bumpy One Before They Tackle Another Divisional Foe

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.

Panthers’ Fans—It’s Time To Sit Back, Relax And Watch Some Other Teams Win On Sunday

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?
