The Carolina Panthers seemed well on their way to continuing their undefeated streak, but they had to make it interesting.

Up by 23 points in the fourth quarter against the Green Bay Packers, the Panthers had a late-game scare for a second consecutive week. But this time Carolina didn’t need overtime to get the win, instead sinking the Packers 37-29 to take firm control of the No. 1 seed in the early NFC playoff picture.

The victory came six days after the Panthers beat Indianapolis 29-26 in overtime on Monday night.

The 8-0 start is the Panthers’ best in the 21-year history of the franchise.
