For the first time in over two months, the Panthers enter a game off a loss. Prior to last Sunday's loss to New Orleans, the Panthers had not lost since Arizona in early October.
Even though their 8-game winning streak is history, Carolina is (9-4) and still in excellent position for their first playoff appearance in five seasons. Sunday, they host the (6-7) New York Jets who are also still on the playoff bubble in the AFC. It's another later kickoff this week, at 4:05 pm following the Stadium Show at 1 pm on WBT.
I talked to long-snapper J. J. Jansen about the game and also about his heavy involvement in the Beds for Kids charity, which you can read more about at bedforkids.org.
