The Carolina Panthers odds as it is of knocking off the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks in Century Link Field this weekend were not very high to begin with.

Seattle as it is, are one of the hardest teams to beat at home, plus have been 9-1 over their last 10 games and are one of the hottest teams entering the playoffs, thus making Carolina trying to defeat them such a daunting task. Now, Carolina will have to try and stop the defending champions without one of their best defenders on the field.

David Newton of ESPN has reported that Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei suffered a broken foot during Tuesday's practice and has been ruled out for the rest of the postseason, which also includes their NFC Divisional Round game this Saturday against the Seahawks.

"Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei suffered a fractured foot during Tuesday's practice and is out for at least the NFC divisional playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks."

Panthers Win 1st Playoff Game in 9 Years; Defeat Cardinals 27-16 in NFC Wild Card Game

The last time the Carolina Panthers won a playoff game; it was January of 2006 and they had defeated the Chicago Bears in the 2005 NFC Divisional Round before losing in the NFC Championship that year to the Seattle Seahawks.

Since then, the Panthers were 0-3 in playoff games, one of which was a defeat at Bank of America Stadium in January of 2009 against the Arizona Cardinals; a game Arizona used to propel them to get to Super Bowl XLIII. On Saturday afternoon, the Panthers were able to get revenge and win a playoff game for the first time in nine years, as they knocked off the Cardinals 27-16.

Carolina took an early 3-0 lead on a Graham Gano 47-yard field goal and then a Jonathan Stewart 13-yard touchdown run put Carolina up 10-0 in the first quarter.

Carolina Panthers Sign Safety Thomas DeCoud

The Carolina Panthers have signed safety Thomas DeCoud to a two-year contract after hosting him for a visit this past weekend. Thomas DeCoud will bring a veteran presence to the secondary as well as familiarity with the NFC South after spending his entire NFL career up to this point with the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers will be hoping that DeCoud can return to the form he showed in 2012 for the Falcons.

After a monster season in 2012, Thomas DeCoud saw his production dip in 2013. Whatever the reason for that may be, the Carolina Panthers are hoping that a slight change in scenery will spark a rebound in 2014. While DeCoud is changing teams he is staying in the NFC South. Thomas DeCoud spent the first six seasons of his career with the Atlanta Falcons, his best season being 2012, when he posted 76 tackles, six interceptions, nine passes defensed and one sack.

Another aspect of this signing is financial. Safety Charles Godfrey, set to make about $5 million this year, may be on the chopping block now. Godfrey played in just two games due to an injury to his Achilles tendon last season. Adding a former Pro Bowl safety gives Carolina some flexibility at the safety position if the team decides that it's time to move on from Charles Godfrey.

Carolina Panthers Sign Tight End Ed Dickson

The Carolina Panthers have added another receiving threat for Cam Newton with the signing of tight end Ed Dickson. Ed Dickson will serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Greg Olsen, giving Carolina one of the better tight end duos in the NFL. Having a second talented tight end will take some pressure off the wide receivers, a unit that has been raided by free agency this offseason. Ed Dickson played his first four seasons in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens.

Ed Dickson gives the Carolina Panthers a solid No. 2 tight end, Super Bowl experience and a bit of security in the event that the team is unable to find a true centerpiece for their receiving corps. As it stand right now, Greg Olsen is the top target for the team, with Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant headlining the group of wide receivers. While those names don't jump off the pages as playmakers, along with Dickson the Panthers will have a solid, veteran group that can produce.
