What a strange NFL season this has been. It is the kind of season that just might allow for a previously 0-2 team to make the playoffs.

With a record of 1-2, the Panthers are second in their division and definitely still in the playoff hunt.

Here are the Panthers upcoming October games....

@ Cardinals (2-2)
@ Vikings (1-3)
Rams (1-3)
@ Bucs (0-4)

Every single one of these games should be a Panthers victory and put the Panthers at a 5-2 record heading into November. Heck, just winning the first two would give Ron Rivera his first taste of being over .500 in his head coaching career.

It seems the football gods have smiled favorably on the Panthers this season.

That said, Panthers fans are currently at a crossroads. While the home game against the Giants was a huge morale booster, there is still worry for a let down. We are accustomed to seeing this Panthers team play down to the level of the competition and not win the games that they should win.

It all starts Sunday against the Cardinals, which I am calling a must win. This Panthers team MUST go on the road and win if they want to convince the fan base they are for real this year. After all, Ron Rivera is 0-2 after a bye week. A loss is very possible.

Give them nothing. But take from them everything.

Now that Rivera's job is guaranteed through the season, it will be interesting to see if he goes back to scared coaching.

This game is definitely going to dictate the tone for the rest of the season. If we lose this game, it would take a Super Bowl victory to convince me that Rivera shouldn't be canned.

Dear Friend,

 

It is Monday morning coming off a bye week that was preceded by this Panther team destroying a NY Giant team led by a 2 time Superbowl winning QB.  This team can go on the road, and do to the Cardinals, the same thing they did to the Giants.  I fully expect for that to happen next Sunday.  I respect your opinion and have no problem with your glass being half empty but mine, on the other hand, is half full.  And by the time game time comes around on Sunday, I, and many other individuals on this board will have glasses that are 100% full.  Most will contain various forms of adult libations but they will be full all the same.

 

Panthers 42

 

Cardinals 10

2nd in the division without playing any divisional games. Dont choke.

Question.

If we sweep the saints, but they have an overall better record than us, do we win the division or does the best record in the division wins? In other words, does overall record matter, or does the divisional record matter?

Based on the answer we could be practically 0-0

I would say we could win all 4 games not should.

3 of those games are on the road and Minny is better than their record

But we HAVE to win at minimum 3 of these games and would like to take all 4.

1. Overall record
2. Division record
3. Record vs team in question
4. Pts scored

And thats how they determine who places where

Divisional record does not matter unless your overall record is tied with the team and you are 1-1 against them.

 

So if we sweep the saints and end up at the end of the season with a tied overall record, then we are the divisional champs. If the same thing happens but we are 1-1 with the saints then divisional record matters.

 

From NFL.com

 

TO BREAK A TIE WITHIN A DIVISION

If, at the end of the regular season, two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical won-lost-tied percentages, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

Two Clubs
  1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
  2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
  3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
  4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
  5. Strength of victory.
  6. Strength of schedule.
  7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
  8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
  9. Best net points in common games.
  10. Best net points in all games.
  11. Best net touchdowns in all games.
  12. Coin toss
