It's the oddest collection of picks for a Panthers game all season - which seems fitting in a matchup that's hard to figure.
Half of the media outlets represented in the panel went with Carolina while half went with Cleveland, and overall 22 of the 40 prognosticators sided with the Panthers. That's the definition of a toss-up, but the weird thing is that it's pretty much a blowout within each panel. For example, the Panthers were picked by six of seven Sports Illustrated analysts, while the Browns were picked by six of eight CBS analysts.
