Panthers' Rivera clinging to slim playoff hopes, Saints next

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Ron Rivera is clinging to the slim hope the Panthers can rebound from a five-game losing streak, beat the Saints twice in three weeks and earn a wild card spot in the NFC playoffs.

The coach understands the chances of all of that happening are remote at best.

"There's a chance - five percent," Rivera said Tuesday. "That's what they are giving us, so that's what we will take. ... All you need is a chance."
