Despite having a losing record, the Panthers could actually make the playoffs — and score a home game — thanks to their win Sunday against Cleveland 17-13.
Because the NFC South division is pretty sorry (no team has over a .500 record), the Panthers can clinch a playoff spot with a winner-takes-all matchup over the Falcons in Atlanta next weekend.
Panther players took to social media to celebrate Sunday.
