The Panthers are in an almost-must-win situation in a MNF rematch with the Bucs. The Bucs won the first meeting, and the Panthers have no margin of error with a tough closing schedule, John Clayton writes.
Home field has been huge in the NFC South. But don't assume the Panthers will roll over the Saints on Sunday. Thanks to the red-hot Drew Brees, New Orleans can never be counted out, writes John Clayton.
Patriots vs. Chargers. Sunday night. Does it get any better? Well, usually no. But with Tom Brady injured and the Chargers scuffling, the AFC title game rematch has lost a little luster, writes John Clayton.
