The Panthers Could Still Win The Super Bowl….technically

1409

While it may be hard to believe after a 5 game losing streak, the Carolina Panthers do still have a chance at a Super Bowl win this year, albeit, a very slim one…

Before winning the Super Bowl, they’d first have to make it to and win the playoffs.

The Panthers currently have a 6-7 record and are sitting at the #7 spot in the NFC, with only 6 teams making it to the playoffs, they would have to advance past one of the following teams:

  • Saints @ 11-2
  • Rams @ 11-2
  • Bears @ 9-4
  • Cowboys @ 8-5
  • Seahawks @ 7-5
  • Vikings @ 6-5

The Panthers still have 3 games left – 2 against the Saints and 1 against the Falcons. If they win all 3 games, they will be 9-7, meaning several of the above teams would still have to lose a couple games, and the Redskins and Eagles (also currently both 6-7) would have to perform worse than the Panthers for them to make the top 6.

Oh, and the Giants, Lions, and Bucs are all at 5-8, and the Packers are at 5-7, so they’re all also, theoretically, kind of, sort of, in the running.

Hey…we did it back in 2014.

Go Panthers!
