Four Carolina Panthers marquee matchups in 2019
Four matchups and five Carolina Panthers games worth looking forward to next season.

To celebrate the NFL’s 100th season, a kickoff game between the rival Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears awaits on Thursday night. The Panthers are also celebrating a milestone in 2019 as they take the field for year 25 after beginning play during the 1995 season.
Coach Ron Rivera enters his ninth season at the helm and with quarterback Cam Newton. After finishing last season with a lone win over the entire second half, both should be poised for a return to the playoffs this year.
