49ers go with the hail-Mary final play only to come up short.
Comeback DENIED! WATCH: Carolina slams the door on Kaepernick's would-be rally http://t.co/y5KP6At7bA

It was not a good day for Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers.
The Carolina Panthers, thanks to their tough defence all game and game-winning pick in the dying seconds, proved they should be in the same conversation as other heavyweight teams in the NFC.
It’s the type of game this team simply hasn’t won the past couple of seasons but Carolina’s defense was fantastic and the offense under Cam Newton did enough to win 10-9.
The Panthers have now won five in a row, are 6-3 overall and find themselves in the thick of the NFC South race and overall playoff picture.
