Notes

  • The Carolina Panthers will open the season against two AFC teams. The regular season opener will be on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars and then the home opener will be the following week against the Houston Texans.

 

  • The Panthers have two primetime games in addition to the nationally televised game on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys. The team will play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football and then face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8 on Monday Night Football.

 

  • The team’s bye week is earlier this year (Week 5) but due to the Thanksgiving Day game in Dallas the Panthers will have nine days off prior to their Week 13 game in New Orleans. This should help the team rest up for the final stretch of the season.

 

  • The Panthers divisional games are in three sets of back-to-back games. The Panthers have two divisional matchups before their bye week in Week 5 and then don’t face another divisional opponent until Week 13. They actually have four divisional matchups in the last five weeks of the season and don’t play Atlanta until Week 14. They will face the number one overall pick on October 4 when they travel to Tampa Bay.

 

  • In addition to all the divisional games, the Panthers will be away from Bank of America Stadium a lot down the stretch with four road games over the final six games of the season. Their toughest stretch though may be coming out of their bye week with games at Seattle, then three straight home games against Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Green Bay.
