Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns: Gameday information
Everything you need to know about the Carolina Panthers Week 14 contest.
A Carolina Panthers four game losing streak led coach Ron Rivera to relieve two coaches from their positions and take over the defensive play calling. An attempt to right the ship, he may also be coaching to secure his own future down the stretch.
The Panthers have allowed an average of 30-plus points to their opponents over the past four weeks and will be tested again on Sunday. Three of the Cleveland Browns four wins have come at home and with Carolina struggling away from Bank of America Stadium, another close game is expected with the outcome impacting both teams in the hunt for a playoff berth.
Both quarterbacks Cam Newton and Baker Mayfield will be tested but if Carolina can utilize some mid-to-long range passes remains to be seen. Last week, the Panthers quarterback struggled in the passing game, completing 68-percent of his passes but few traveled more than 15 yards down the field, in addition to throwing four interceptions.
Following is everything you need to know in order to prepare for the Panthers and Browns.
