The Carolina Panthers enter this weekend’s playoff game with the best record in the NFL and an extra week of rest. They’ll host the Seattle Seahawks, who knocked them out of the playoffs last year.

It’s been five years since the Carolina Panthers have been in the position they are this week – hosting a playoff game. Veteran offensive linemen Ryan Kalil said even though the team hasn't been great the past few years, the fans have. 

“When we've been able to sell out games and have as bad of seasons as we've had the past few years, I mean, that's pretty supportive, in my opinion,” Kalil said after practice Wednesday.
