What it means: Coach Ron Rivera admitted on Friday that this was a “do-or-die’’ game for the Panthers. If so, rest in peace. Carolina (3-7-1) lost its fifth straight game to go to 1-7-1 in its last nine games. Mathematically, the NFC South crown remains up for grabs because Atlanta (4-6) and New Orleans (4-6) have only one more win and the Panthers have a game left against each.
