57. . . . Chicago Bears. 6. team

Carolina Panthers: Week 6 vs Chicago Bears – WIN

The Chicago Bears have plenty of questions to answer regarding their quarterback position. This is something that could allow the Carolina Panthers’ talented young front seven to make a real difference in this contest.

They do have an imposing defense that has a proven track record of shutting down even the best offenses across the league. But this is another game on the schedule that will be earmarked as a possible win.

15. . . . New Orleans Saints. 7. team

Carolina Panthers: Week 7 @ New Orleans Saints – LOSS

Everything is in place for the New Orleans Saints to make another run at the Vince Lombardi Trophy in Drew Brees’ final season under center. They have a loaded roster across the board, and it would be a huge surprise if they suffered another early postseason defeat.

This represents one of the toughest games on the schedule for the Carolina Panthers. It would be a significant upset if they could win this one.

8. team. 44. . . . Atlanta Falcons

Carolina Panthers: Week 8 vs Atlanta Falcons – WIN

There is a pretty quick turnaround to their return matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. How the Carolina Panthers adjust from their first encounter will go a long way to determining their fortunes in this particular clash.

Expectations will be much higher at this point. And their new-look roster should have acclimatized to each other by this stage of the season.

Kansas City Chiefs. 9. team. 124. . .

Carolina Panthers: Week 9 @ Kansas City Chiefs – LOSS

This is unquestionably the most daunting game for the Carolina Panthers in 2020. The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl in 2019. And they are expected to make a real push for back-to-back titles.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the new face of the NFL after leading his die to glory last season. They have some outstanding offensive weapons and a defense that improved dramatically as the campaign wore on.
