Carolina Panthers: Terrible division only hope for terrible play

The 2014 season clearly hasn’t gone the way the Carolina Panthers envisioned it. However, there is hope, and that hope may lie in abysmal play of NFC South. The NFL’s worst division has combined for 13 wins, and is only one of two divisions without at least 20 combined wins (AFC South has 14 wins).
