Panthers extend Rivera's contract

It's another reward for Rivera, whose team is back in the playoffs.

The Panthers (11-5) play the New Orleans Saints (11-5) Sunday in the National Football League wild card round. Neither team has been completely healthy when they met previously, but the Panthers will have tight end Greg Olsen and center Ryan Kalil available this time around.

- Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has agreed to a two-year contract extension to keep him in Charlotte through 2020.

If Carolina and coach Rivera hope to extend their season, nearly flawless play will be needed in all three phases of the game - offense, defense and special teams.

The Panthers finished the 2017 regular season with the same record as the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South, and the teams will meet in an NFC Wild Card Game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday.
