TONY GARCIA:Will Panthers and USFL be successful? Who knows? Will it be fun? You bet

Game notes: There are just five weeks left in the USFL’s 10-week schedule, meaning the playoffs in Canton, Ohio — which will take the top two teams from each division — are looming. The Panthers are on the outside looking in, at third in the North Division, but only one game back of the Philadelphia Stars. And by point differential, the Panthers are plus-7, one of four teams with a positive differential. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they’re facing the team with the best point differential, the Stallions at plus-37.
