Panthers remaining regular season games will be challenging
The Carolina Panthers have two remaining regular season games
It seems almost like it was just yesterday when the Carolina Panthers were in training camp getting ready for the regular season to begin.
The training camp that saw numerous injuries, with the biggest being to wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin when he tore his ACL, along with Star injuring his foot again, causing him to miss the start of the regular season.
But now, the regular season is almost over, as only two games remain in the regular season.
These two games are against NFC South Division rivals, the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Both of these teams, the Panthers have beaten already once this year, with the victory against the Falcons was just before the Panthers defeated the Giants.
Now, as everyone knows, if the Panthers win these two remaining games, the Panthers will finish the regular season undefeated.

America Stadium, as they were shutout. Not only were the Falcons shutout, but they also were shutout by the second and first team defense of the Panthers.
With such a quick turnaround, do the Falcons have a shot at winning? Well, the Falcons are coming off of a victory this past weekend over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Panthers also defeated the Jaguars earlier this season. Remember, it was only the Jaguars the Falcons defeated.
Now the Tampa Bay Bucs, who would have the better shot. Jameis Winston has improved dramatically since the first time these two teams played, as he will likely be rookie of the year.
Not only that, but if the Panthers have home field advantage locked for the entire playoffs, will the starters play the entire game, if at all?
Can either the Falcons, or the Bucs, defeat the Panthers?
