The Carolina Panthers will play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Scheduled for a 4:05 pm EST kickoff this game will air on FOX from Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
Both teams could look quite different next season. Reports suggest that Chargers coach Norv Turner is set to be fired along with general manager AJ Smith. The Panthers have already made a move to replace their general manager but head coach Ron Rivera is likely the next man out the door.
What is the point spread in the Panthers and Chargers game? The Chargers are 3 point favorites against the Panthers. The over/under is set at 45 points.
Avg Points Allowed
San Diego pulled off a win in Pittsburgh last week but would need to win their remaining three games to finish .500 this season. The Chargers have not made the playoffs since 2009 and with an aging group of players are in need of an overhaul.
Turner has suggested that running back Ryan Matthews could get a career high in touches this weekend. Matthews has not had the type of season the Chargers had hoped so how effective those touches will be remains to be seen. Philip Rivers is second in the NFL as he has been sacked 37 times. Rivers had a nice performance last week against Pittsburgh but they have been few and far between this season.
Big things were expected from Carolina after Cam Newton’s stellar rookie season. Carolina is 4-9 and tied for the NFC’s worst record but have seven losses by six points or fewer.
Newton started the season off sluggish and even offered up a suggestion box. Over the past six games, the second-year quarterback has completed 60 percent of his passes for 1519 yards. Steve Smith needs one yard to reach 1,000 on the season.

Per Rob Kelley of the Pigskin Report, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is out for the rest of the season with a broken left clavicle.

People in Charlotte love to buy space in the newspaper. Back in July, Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought a full page ad in the Charlotte Observer, promising Panthers fans a Super Bowl victory this year. That hasn’t worked out so well. Especially with Kaili on IR since October with a foot injury. Now a group [...]
The San Diego Chargers are a team in a state of flux currently, but one of the biggest question marks surrounding the team is whether or not RB Ryan Mathews is a NFL caliber running back. Mathews was selected by the Chargers as the heir-apparent replacement for LaDainian Tomlinson, after the club moved up in the draft to select him. He came with an impressive resume, but he is now...

Michael Gehlken reports that Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is done for the season after he suffered a broke his right collarbone during Sunday’s loss to the Panthers.
This is the second time he’s broken his collarbone this season, all be it this time it was the other side.
Mathews’ 2012 season has been as disappointing as any, and there’s certain to be question about his future...
There are no more false hopes surrounding the hapless San Diego Chargers.
Done in by Mike Tolbert, one of the many players authoritarian general manager A.J. Smith has allowed to leave over the years, the Chargers were eliminated from playoff contention for the third straight year in a dismal 31-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
The Chargers (5-9) clinched their first...
The NFL’s Week 15 was kind of a dud. The top-billed games really didn’t live up to the hype, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t drama. Hopefully, there wasn’t any drama in your fantasy football playoff matchup.

The 2012 Redskins have already scored more points than any Redskins team in 13 years, which is not something I was expecting to write about the 2012 Redskins. And if you chalk that 1999 season up as some sort of strange Norv Turner fever dream, then the Redskins haven’t scored like this since ‘91, a season which prompted me to buy a Zubaz-billed Super Bowl hat.
These Skins are...
