Week 13: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. 3-7-1 Carolina faces off against 4-7 Minnesota in this one, but incredible as it sounds, the Panthers are still in the NFC South race so for Carolina this game is a must-win situation. The Vikings are in spoiler mode with Green Bay far out of reach (as is a wild card playoff berth in the NFC). Cam Newton threw for a respectable 23/37 for 292 yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown vs. Atlanta two weeks ago (two sacks taken for -7 yards), and he's had an extra week to shake off some of the aches and bruises accumulated over the first 11 weeks of NFL action - we'll see if he can build off the positive game here in Week 13. Against Atlanta, Newton leaned on Kelvin Benjamin (13 targets for 9/109/1 receiving) and Greg Olsen (11 for 5/61/0) heavily, while finding Philly Brown for his other TD pass (two for 1/47/1). Jerricho Cotchery kept the chains moving with four targets for 2/43/0 receiving - outside of Benjamin and Olsen, there isn't much fantasy juice to be had among the Panthers' receivers entering Week 13. The Vikings' pass D is ranked seventh in the NFL averaging 223.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with 19 pass TDs given up vs. 10 interceptions and 31 sacks generated to date (16th and fourth-ranked in the NFL, respectively). Aaron Rodgers was held to 19/29 for 207 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions last week (one sack taken for -2 yards); Jay Cutler wasn't sacked two weeks ago while throwing 31/43 for 330 net yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions. Any team that can slow down Rodgers and the Packers' receivers is worthy of respect. This looks like a tough matchup for the visiting Panthers.
