The Carolina Panthers have a first-round bye in the upcoming playoffs and they have an extra week to prepare for whatever team may end up facing them in Bank of America Stadium. Cam Newton recently said that they don’t care who their opponent is, but the key to winning is forgetting about egos and focusing on their opponent.
The New Orleans Saints have a revamped defense and an offense that appears to have even more weapons than that of their Super Bowl winning team. For some reason though, the Saints just can’t get things going on the road, but they will have to change that for a wild card visit to Philadelphia.
You again? It begins with the Colts hosting the Chiefs on Saturday. At night, in the only first-round game not involving teams that faced each other this season, New Orleans is at Philadelphia.
Nick Foles and Philadelphia’s high-scoring offense needed a little help from the defense to make sure it was the same old sad ending for Dallas.

The Giants’ chances of winning the NFC East would be slim if they lose, and seven losses might not be good enough to make the playoffs as a wild card.
Peyton Manning threw for 323 yards and a touchdown Sunday night and was barely touched by Kansas City’s sack-happy defense in Denver’s 27-17 victory.

Eli Manning watched the Dallas-Minnesota game before catching a flight back to New Jersey. It turned out to be a tease, along with the Redskins result.
The Giants (2-6) went into Sunday’s bye in the NFC East cellar, but just two games behind first-place Dallas. A Cowboys loss would have put them within one game in the loss column.
After starting the season 0-6, the New York Football Giants have won two games in a row. New York’s defense once again did not allow a touchdown, as Michael Vick re-injured his hamstring, and rookie Matt Barkley could not rally his troops as the Giants defeated the Eagles 15-7 in Philadelphia. The win raised New York’s record to 2-6, while Philadelphia fell to 3-5 on the season.
Oh, the possibilities of what might have been had the Giants received similar efforts from the get-go. Instead, they head into the bye at 2-6, thinking about how they might scrape their way to .500.
Boomer and Craig reviewed Chip Kelly and the Eagles’ offensive ineptitude lately, which brought them to the only logical conclusion.
Victor Cruz appeared to be hurt when he was slammed to the ground after a catch. He later returned in the fourth quarter.
Eli Manning played error-free football as the New York Giants beat the Philadelphia Eagles 15-7 Sunday.
