I realize I was doom and gloom about the Panthers a few weeks ago, going so far as to say another 1-15 season was not out of the question. Now, I'm suddenly encouraged.

If you look at the Panthers' schedule a 9-7 finish and a wild-card spot is definitely not out of the question. They have two games each with New Orleans and Tampa Bay, divison opponents that have struggled all year. So they could easily leapfrog over both teams to second place in the NFC South.

If you look at the overall NFC standings, you'll note that there will be wild-card spots up for grabs at the end of the season. With that in mind, note the Panthers also play the Rams, right now a competitor for a wild-card spot. So hang in there.
