Our View: Allen has a chance to get a ring in his first Super Bowl, and late in his career. The Panthers have needed him after suffering multiple injuries at defensive end. He'll get a chance to set his sights on an especially immobile Peyton Manning.

Panthers | Thomas Davis, Jared Allen on track (Thu Feb 4, 12:08 PM) - Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (forearm) and DE Jared Allen (foot) remain on track to play in Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos after both practiced Wednesday, Feb. 3. Allen was limited, but the move was precautionary, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Davis was a full participant and wore a protective cast over his arm. Rivera said Davis will have his arm looked at by doctors again Friday, Feb. 5, but his full practice load was an indication he'll play. Our View: Sounds good for both guys and once you get them on the field it's going to be tough to get them out of the game. It's the Super Bowl of course.
