The Carolina Panthers will get a week off with the postseason getting underway next week.
After holding off a stingy Falcons squad 21-20, Carolina claimed the NFC South title and a first-round bye next week.
The lowest seed the Panthers can get is the second. There's still a chance Carolina winds up with the No. 1 seed.
For that to happen, the 49ers need to defeat the Cardinals and the Seahawks need to lose to the Rams.
Either way, the Panthers can relax this week knowing they're division champs with a bye.
