Time is running out on the Carolina Panthers as they host the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.
Carolina (6-7) has lost five straight and no longer controls its own destiny in the NFC playoff race but a path exists to the postseason. The Panthers also play New Orleans in Week 17 with a home game versus the struggling Atlanta Falcons in between.
"We had high expectations for the season and unfortunately it hasn't been going our way," Carolina safety Mike Adams said. "The only people we can blame is ourselves. We were put in position to make plays and we just haven't been making them."
