A week after struggling in his first full-time return to the Panthers offense, tight end Greg Olsen reminded fans just how productive he can be with Newton. The veteran captain was targeted more than any other player and delivered.
His nine receptions and 116 yards led the team in both categories while also adding a 30-yard touchdown reception. Olsen darted down the right side, uncovered to open the scoring for Carolina in the second half, regaining the lead. A third lead change in a tight game to that point, the Panthers would not relinquish it the rest of the way.
Overall, the Panthers continued their winning ways and can secure at least a spot in the playoffs with just one more win. While they can possibly still win the division and host a playoff game, they need help from either Atlanta or Tampa Bay in addition to winning their remaining games.

If Atlanta wins until their Week 17 meeting with Carolina and the Panthers handle Tampa Bay next week, it sets up a somewhat surprising divisional championship with the Falcons.
