The (6-2) Carolina Panthers are on the road to face the (5-2-1) Pittsburgh Steelers in a showdown between two of the best teams in the entire league. Kick off is at 8:20 PM ET and the game will be shown on FOX, Amazon, and the NFL Network.
The New England Patriots obviously want the Panthers to defeat the Steelers in order to gain some separation within the AFC standings. If the Panthers beat the Steelers, then a Patriots victory against the Steelers in week 15 would pretty much solidify a first round bye for New England. It’s hard to project three future losses for Tom Brady and company that doesn’t include Pittsburgh.
