The Panthers are back home for the last time in 2018, and this week they will welcome the Falcons to Bank of America Stadium for a game with little more than pride on the line. While the Panthers aren’t officially eliminated, they’re all but out of the playoff picture after losing last Monday night to the Saints and falling to 6-8 on the season.
The Falcons aren’t doing much better at 5-9, but this game is always a fight from start to finish regardless of where the two teams are in the standings. The Panthers will hope to salvage something out of this season, and a win against their division rivals is a good place to start, so hopefully they can do just that.
Here’s all the information you need to follow the action as it happens live.
