Washington vs Carolina Week 16: Five Questions with Cat Scratch Reader

It’s week 16 of the NFL season and the 6-8 Washington Football Team will be facing a 4-10 Panthers team at home at FedExField on Sunday at 4:05 PM EST. The Panthers have a worse overall record, but seem to play much better than their record and have played tough against some good teams this season (losing to the Chiefs and Saints by 3 points or less and coming within a score of the Packers last week).

Panthers owner David Tepper fired Ron Rivera last year in order to sign the more analytically-inclined Matt Rhule, who previously was head coach of the Baylor Bears.
