The Carolina Panthers schedule has officially been released as the 2020 NFL season promises to be a great one. The NFC South will be the division to watch this year.

The wait is officially over ladies and gentlemen as the Carolina Panthers schedule for 2020 has finally been released. The NFC South promises to be a competitive one as the division will look incredibly different this upcoming season. Each team has either added some top free agents to push the envelope or addressed major team needs thanks to the 2020 NFL Draft.

Regardless of what your allegiance is, the NFC South will undoubtedly feature some of the best matchups you’ll see in 2020. The Panthers will have their work cut out for them as they’ll have to face Tom Brady and the new-look Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their rivalry games. With the future Pro Football Hall of Famer now in the division, one better believe that he’ll be a catalyst in turning the Buccaneers back into contenders again.

Unfortunately, the Panthers will more than likely be on the outside looking in. Don’t get me wrong, they’ve upgraded their team immensely compared to what the football world saw last season but they’re just starting a rebuild. In the grand scheme of things, a full-on rebuild like the Panthers are working on in their first year will likely mean a lot of growing pains, miscommunication, and another losing season.

All hope is not lost, however. The Panthers massively upgraded their defense in this year’s draft so that should look a bit more formidable against all these tough offenses they’ll be facing in 2020. Teddy Bridgewater is an upgrade at quarterback and will do his best to turn the Panthers’ offense into a well-oiled machine thanks to everything he brings to the table.

On top of it all, new head coach Matt Rhule will usher in an exciting new era for the Panthers as he brings hope to be the guy to turn all this around for the franchise. It won’t be easy but if there is anyone with the experience, expertise, and charisma to get the job done, it’s Rhule.
