An in-depth look at the non-divisional home opponents of the Carolina Panthers for the 2018 season…

The Carolina Panthers recently completed an impressive 11-5 season with a playoff loss to divisional rival New Orleans. After losing twice during the regular season to the Saints, Carolina failed to win their sixth divisional championship with a Week 17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Despite their shortcomings, the Panthers earned a wild card berth but couldn’t advance and now have begun preparations for next season. Already announcing the dismissal of offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterback coach Ken Dorsey, changes are on the horizon for Carolina throughout one of the most important offseasons in franchise history.

One coordinator has been replaced and defensive coordinator Steve Wilks could follow if he lands a head coaching position elsewhere in the league. Two new coordinators, coupled with finalizing a permanent general manager role in addition to a new owner means the Panthers could look a lot different next season.

These teams will be visiting Bank of America Stadium in the fall, unless the NFL were to schedule one of these games for their annual International Series.
