Panthers 16 Packers 24: Ron Rivera made the right decision to go for two in the fourth quarter

In the fourth quarter of yesterday’s Carolina Panthers game against the Green Bay Packers, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera had a decision to make. The Panthers had just scored a touchdown to pull within eight points of the Packers with just under 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter on the road in a snow storm at Lambeau Field.

The Packers were running the ball at will against the Panthers defense and had already scored three times on the ground up to that point. With the score sitting at 24-16 and no guarantee that Carolina would be able to stop the Packers from scoring again, what should Rivera do?
