The Panthers have actually been playing some good football lately and have been an underrated team all year, losing just twice by more than 6 points (once on Thursday Night, in a game they were completely unprepared for). However, they’ve won 3 of their last 4, including two on the road and one against the Falcons and their only loss was to the Chiefs, the day after the Jovan Belcher incident. They have a very winnable game against the Raiders this week and might even go into New Orleans and win week 17, though, as the Saints proved last week, that’s still not a fun place to go into and play.
