Carolina Panthers (4-10) vs Washington Football Team (6-8)
FedEx Field, 4:05 p.m (Saturday)
Emotions will be running high for some on Sunday evening as former Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera will coach against his former team for the first time since being fired in 2019.
Rivera says he won't let the storylines become too much of a distraction because there is a lot on the line for Washington as they sit atop the NFC South division standings with the playoffs in sight.
For the Panthers, they will likely be without running back Christian McCaffrey once again and a few other key players, such as CB Troy Pride Jr., DE Brian Burns, and OT Russell Okung who may be out for this week's game as well.
This game has all the makings of a low-scoring affair with two lackluster offenses and two well-coached defensive units. Don't be surprised if this game comes down to the bitter end.
