I'm still getting used to cracking the top 10 but they now have climbed to #6:

6. Carolina Panthers Carolina hasn't exactly played a Murderer's Row over its recent four game win streak, but they have all but murdered every team they've faced. Blowing out bad teams is the hallmark of a very good team, and the Panthers may be just that if Kuechly & Co keep up their punishing ways while the Cam-centric offense continues to thrive. More than capable of replicating the beat 'em up approach that helped the Jets dispatch the Saints last Sunday, Carolina should make things very interesting in the NFC South. (Last Week: 9)
Of course we will find out if they are worthy this weekend when they travel to San Fran. It's should be a humdinger!
For those dissing on the Panthers win streak because of the competition should memorize this line:
"Blowing out bad teams is a hallmark of a very good team"
I have to agree. How about you?
