Charles Edwards@@CEdwards80Contributor IDecember 23, 2012

The Carolina Panthers defeated the Oakland Raiders 17-6 to earn their third straight victory of the season.  This game was physical and featured a multitude of penalties of the unnecessary roughness variety.  The Panthers' win guarantees they will at least match last year's record of 6-10 but they will go for win number seven next week at New Orleans.

As for Oakland, they were in this one despite the loss of quarterback Carson Palmer after he sustained a vicious hit by Greg Hardy.  Matt Leinart played admirably but in the end it was not enough to over the Panthers on their home turf.

Final thoughts and analysis will be available shortly.
