Panthers vs. Chargers: Carolina's Biggest Winners and Losers from Week 15

The Carolina Panthers demolished the San Diego Chargers 31-7 at Qualcomm Stadium, as this was easily Carolina's most dominant victory of the season. 

As the score indicates, this game was never close. Mike Tolbert produced the first points of the game, as he rumbled into the end zone to give the Panthers a touchdown lead with 8:33 left in the first quarter. 

Carolina built upon that momentum and entered the locker room at the half with a 24-point lead. 

After Week 15, the Panthers and Chargers are both 5-9 and are mathematically eliminated from the postseason race. Although the Panthers will not make the playoffs, their entire roster is still working hard to ensure that they stand out enough to retain their position with the team. 

Each organization will likely undergo coaching and management changes once the season wraps up, but the Panthers were far more focused on this game than the Chargers were. 

While each Panthers win hurts their future draft position, it's encouraging to see the team's improved performance as the season has progressed. 

When Carolina plays like they did today, an argument could be made that they are one of the most dangerous 5-9 teams in NFL history. 

Since the Panthers dominated in each facet of the game, this slideshow will be extremely positive and filled with winners.
