Only 5 weeks remain in the NFL regular season, as playoff races begin to heat up.
My game of the week: Carolina Panthers (4-6) at Oakland Raiders (8-2)
Unfortunately for NFL fans, there aren’t a lot of marquee match-ups this week in the NFL. I am, however, looking forward to when the Panthers travel out to Oakland to take on the Red Hot Raiders. Last year’s Super Bowl runner-up versus the 2016 darlings.
This one could end up being a quarterback battle of Derek Carr, the young NFL MVP candidate, up against the 2015 NFL MVP in Cam Newton. You can find me on my couch for this one!
