Just how good are the Panthers?

Another week, another big test passed by the Carolina Panthers. This one came on "Monday Night Football" against the New England Patriots, with Cam Newton leading a late touchdown drive in a dramatic 24-20 win (complete with controversial ending). That gives Ron Rivera's team its sixth straight win, moving it to 7-3 on the year and firmly into playoff position. Will the Panthers be a legitimate threat come playoff time?
