The Panthers (5-9) are all set to play their last home game of the season, and today they’ll be taking on the Oakland Raiders  (4-10) on a mild day here in Charlotte – 50 degrees as I type this. Should get up to 57, which feels more like fall football weather than winter weather. Nice.
Needless to say, the Panthers are hoping to extend their 2 game winning streak (their first of the year – defeating the Falcons and then the Chargers) into a 3 game streak with a win over Oakland, and be on the road to (hopefully) finish a bad season on a strong note. I’m feeling cautiously optimistic about the Cats’ chances of winning today, so I picked them in the office pool. Their opponents next week, BTW, are the New Orleans Saints.
Today’s game starts at 1 ET and will be broadcast locally on CBS.
My office pool picks for this week:
Seahawks – sorry, Phineas! (43 total game points)
BTW, I won the office pool this past week, along with a colleague. My first time I’ve won more than once in a season. Yay me!
