23. Carolina Panthers 3-5 (23)
After a 1-5 start, there was little doubt the Panthers still had life, especially if they started getting some of their players back healthy. Now they have run off two straight victories.
The Panthers didn’t muster much on offense on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Then again, they didn’t need much.
They went to Los Angeles and handed the Rams their fourth straight loss. The Panthers are now striking a resemblance to the team that reeled off six straight wins in 2014.
The Panthers are still miles away however form where they were in 2015. The offense still isn’t running on all cylinders.
Now the Panthers head home for the next two weeks. They will host the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints. Two very tough games. They could be on the outside looking in this postseason if they lose even one of those games.
