With hopes for making the playoffs a distant memory, the 5-8 Panthers’ season is all but over. Tonight, they hope to play the role of spoiler here at home as they take on the 11-2 Vikings, who can clinch the NFC North with a win. Once again, Matt Moore will start as QB for the Cats in place of the ‘injured’ Jake Delhomme. The weather here? Much different than it was on Friday, when we had a wintry mix of slush, sleet, freezing rain, and bitterly cold winds. It’s cold tonight, but there’s not a drop of the frozen stuff in sight.
Game time is 8:20 PM ET, and it will be broadcast on NBC.
Update: In an upset, the Panthers made easy work of the Vikings tonight, winning the game 26-7.
