Covers Preview - Two teams clinging to slim playoff hopes square off Sunday when the Carolina Panthers host the Cleveland Browns. The Panthers are still alive in the weak NFC South, but they need some help in the form of New Orleans losing one of its last two games. Cleveland's playoff hopes are hanging by the flimsiest of threads — the Browns are two games back in the wild-card race with two to play, and five teams are ahead of them in the scramble for two berths.
