Week 16 NFL Power Rankings

Mario Mergola

24. Carolina Panthers (LW: 24)

As long as the Panthers play the Buccaneers every week and Derek Anderson starts the game at quarterback, they should never lose. Two of the team’s five wins have come under these conditions, and with the Panthers’ fifth win, they move back into the hunt for the NFC South title. Because, of course they would. While Carolina continues to be one of the worst teams in football, it remains alive due to the rest of division playing nearly as nauseating football, as well. If nothing else, at least three-team races are more exciting to watch, although it’s clear that none of them deserve to win.
