What are some of the key matchups to watch when the Carolina Panthers welcome the Arizona Cardinals to Bank of America Stadium in Week 4?

The games are coming thick and fast for the Carolina Panthers, who now turn their attentions to a Week 4 clash against the Arizona Cardinals.

This represents another stern test for the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. But they are coming into the contest with some momentum following an impressive victory at the Chargers in Week 3.

Some significant improvements were made on the defensive side of the ball after a mediocre first fortnight of competitive action and new head coach Matt Rhule will be hoping this is a trend that can continue long into the future.

Getting their first win of the season is one thing, but building on it is something entirely different.

There is just no telling how much of a confidence boost this is going to be for a young roster that has been relatively competitive in all their games so far this season despite boasting a 1-2 record at this juncture.

They are sure to get all they can handle from the Cardinals, who harbor postseason ambitions in 2020 and have a wealth of weapons that can do damage on both sides of the ball. The Panthers go into the game as slight underdogs, but this is nothing new for them and their new-look roster has coped well in the face of adversity during the campaign to date.

Let’s take a look at four key matchups that could go a long way to determining the overall outcome.
