Get your final Carolina Panthers game day of 2019 started here.

The Carolina Panthers have one more opportunity to stop a second half slide reminiscent of last season. After losing starting quarterback Cam Newton to injury after just two games, the Panthers turned to backup Kyle Allen and were 5-3 halfway through the season.

Unfortunately, Carolina has lost every game since, dropping seven in a row as they prepare to host divisional rival New Orleans at home. The Saints still have an opportunity to secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs and as a result are expected to play the majority of their starters in order to secure such a position.

Opposite, the Panthers fate has already been determined in terms of the playoffs – there will be none – but draft positions could improve if handed another loss. Given Carolina has a number of roster areas in need of attention – quarterback, defensive line, defensive secondary, offensive line, etc. – there are plenty of options for general manager Marty Hurney to target with a high first-round pick.
