Panthers fans rally ahead of playoff game as team sale looms

Panthers fans rally ahead of playoff game as team sale looms Panthers fans rally ahead of playoff game as team sale looms

As far as the adage goes that it's hard to beat the same team three times in the same season.not true unfortunately!

The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff left 22 seconds on the clock. Both rushed for more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage with Kamara perhaps the most electric of the two.

Carolina was the last team to beat the Vikings, on a day where the Vikings matched their season high with three turnovers and allowed Jonathan Stewart to become the only running back to gain 100 yards in a game against them this season.

"Both teams ended the season 11-5, but while Carolina's Cam Newton - at 28 years old - still has plenty of years ahead of him, time might be running out on New Orleans" Drew Brees.

Two years later, the Panthers took down NY in the first round and Chicago in the divisional round, and Seattle pummeled Carolina in the 2005 NFC Championship game. When the teams met again in December, in what was ostensibly a game to decide the NFC South championship, the results were not much better, with Newton held under two hundred yards passing again and frequently looking perplexed.

Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles had more rushing yards than passing, but it was enough to help them advance from the wild-card round with a 10-3 victory over Buffalo.

Wideout Russell Shepard, who joined Carolina from Tampa in the spring, remembers the Panthers being picked to finish last in 2015, when they went on to finish 15-1.

Industry responds to coffee cups report
COFFEE lovers should be charged 25p for disposable cups, with revenue used to pay for improved recycling, MPs have urged. Starbucks said on Friday it would trial a 5p charge on takeaway coffee cups for three months in about 20 London cafes.

The Jaguars advanced to face the second-seeded Steelers on January 14 in Pittsburgh. Then kicker Graham Gano missed a chip-in field goal.

However, since the Week 13 matchup with the Saints, Carolina has won three of four games and has tallied 10 takeaways, tied for third best in the National Football League in that span.

"We start this time of year, and everyone is starting from scratch", he said. That kicked off an eight-game winning streak that would be snapped by the Los Angeles Rams. I think that is a reality.

The nightcap features the fourth-seeded New Orleans Saints (11-5) and the No. 5 seed Carolina Panthers (11-5) at the Superdome.

"You're talking about one of the better tight ends in the game and so not having him is significant and having him (in the previous games) is huge", Saints coach Sean Payton said.

The Panthers-Saints victor will play at Minnesota next week.
