The Carolina Panthers are now on the outside looking in.

After sitting at 6-2, Cam Newton and the Panthers are in the middle of a four-game losing streak.

That streak has resulted in two coaches losing their jobs.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke and assistant secondary/cornerbacks coach Jeff Imamura were fired following the Panthers 24-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. 

On top of those firings, star tight end Greg Olsen was placed on injured reserve – ending his season.

Insider Mark Thomas said the Panthers have to take it one game at a time to build their resume for the playoffs.

The Panthers travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns on Dec. 9 at 1 p.m.
