Panthers' Critics Ignore One Obvious Fact in Carolina's Favor

Panthers' Critics Ignore One Obvious Fact in Carolina's Favor

The 15-1 Carolina Panthers have been disrespected all season long and make excuses for their record: NFL's easiest schedule. Bad receiver group. Giving up leads and/or just plain being lucky. Well, I hope at least Seattle fans will keep the lid on the "being lucky" part since the only reason they even get to make the trip to Charlotte is because of a botched 27-yd FG by the Minnesota Vikings. The Carolina Panthers have the one thing no other team has, however.

Carolina Panthers Learning to Win at the Right Time

Carolina Panthers Learning to Win at the Right Time

Winning, it’s something the Carolina Panthers rediscovered at just the right time.

The Panthers continued their winning streak and secured a playoff spot by beating the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, 34-3. The Panthers were dominant from the opening kickoff. The offense moved the ball, and although Carolina didn’t capitalize on every red-zone appearance, they put up points. The defense came to play as well. Laying big hits early, Carolina swarmed Matt Ryan all afternoon, and for the first time this season, the defense scored. Then they scored again. Reminiscent of the beat-down delivered in New Orleans four weeks ago, Carolina finished out a four-game win streak that landed them with a home playoff game.  Although winning has come easy as of late, it was something that evaded the Panthers for ten weeks, leaving many of us to think this playoff berth was near impossible.

A Look At The NFC South Playoff Picture

With just six weeks remaining, and with the division leader two games under 500, (unbelievably) any of the four teams can still win. Three teams still control their own destiny. Win more remaining games than the other NFC opponents and you are in the big dance.
