The magic number is still five at this point, as the Panthers are two games behind them, at 2-8, and have the worse opponent winning percentage, which is the tiebreaker. However, based on opponent's winning percentage right now, they hold a three game advantage over the 2-8 Vikings and 2-8 Rams.
I have a hard time seeing the Colts winning more than one game, but at the same time have a hard time seeing the Panthers losing out. More than likely, in about two weeks, this should pretty much be a lock.
