NEWS

Covers Preview - The Carolina Panthers haven't won a game since Week 5, but a victory Sunday at Minnesota would keep them right in the mix in the weak NFC South. The Vikings have a better record than the Panthers, but their playoff hopes are decidedly less promising. Minnesota is mired in the NFC North cellar at 4-7, while the Panthers (3-7-1) are only a half-game out of the division lead despite being tied for the second-fewest wins in the NFC.
