Carolina Panthers 2018 full season performance: Offense
See how each Carolina Panthers offensive unit performed during 2018.
A promising start endured a staggering descent as the Carolina Panthers roller coaster season ended on a positive note. A win over divisional rival New Orleans allowed center Ryan Kalil to finish his career in style along with ending a seven game losing streak. There weren’t multiple ups and downs along the way, just a really big climb that came crashing down over the entire second half.
Offensive coordinator Norv Turner appeared to have the offense dialed in for much of the season despite being limited with an injured quarterback. While the initial focus was to allow Cam Newton an opportunity at high percentage and quick release passes, it became a necessity as the Panthers quarterback battled through shoulder soreness during the final eight weeks.
Injuries hampered the offense from preseason play forward, forcing Ron Rivera to piece together an offensive line. The unit had highs and lows but eventually defenses found their way into the backfield more often than not.
Following are the final performance grades earned by each offensive unit for the entire 2018 season.
