High Stakes For Playoff-Bound Panthers On Sunday Against Falcons

The Carolina Panthers have already clinched a spot in this year’s playoffs, but they are still playing for so much more. The NFC South is still up for grabs as is a first-round bye, and all that stands in their way is a win over the hapless Atlanta Falcons. That is much easier said than done though.

Panthers Will Be Facing An Angry Saints Team Yet Again

The Carolina Panthers still have a great chance at being the NFC South champions and making a run into the playoffs, but there is still work to do. Unfortunately, they’ll be getting an angry New Orleans Saints team yet again, but fortunately, it is a Saints team that is rather awful on the road.

Which Jets Team Will Show Up In Carolina?

The Carolina Panthers are coming off of their first loss in nine weeks and also their worst of the season. That being said, it is time for them to make up for that loss to the Saints by welcoming their next opponent. But a question remains. Which New York Jets team will show up?

Panthers Won’t Roll Over Last-Place Buccaneers

The Carolina Panthers may have extended their win streak to seven games, but it came thanks to a last-minute score over a declining Miami Dolphins team. Now, they will have the all-of-a-sudden dangerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers in town, and they are trying to extend a winning streak of their own.

Panthers Run Attack Crucial Against Patriots

The New England Patriots have a 7-2 record, but they really haven’t looked much like themselves this season. Their defense has really struggled and the passing game doesn’t even rank in the first half of the league, but they’re still the Patriots. That’s something the Carolina Panthers will have to remember.

Falcons Continues To Struggle As Trip To Charlotte Approaches

The NFC South has always been one of those divisions full of surprises, twists and competitiveness. Everyone probably could have predicted one team to excel, another to be a close second, a third to start fading back, and a fourth to be one of the worst in the league … but not in the order they are currently in.
