Which members of the Carolina Panthers could be classed as the most important when they take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4 of the 2020 season?

The Carolina Panthers are looking to build on their first win of the 2020 season later today when they come up against the Arizona Cardinals at Bank of America Stadium.

This has been a baptism of fire for a new-look roster and coaching staff who might have enjoyed plenty of success at the college level, but this counts for nothing in the NFL. The Carolina Panthers were competitive in two straight losses to open the campaign. However, they turned things around in no uncertain terms with an exceptional victory at the Los Angele Chargers that has the potential to kickstart their season.

Considering that the Panthers were without star running back Christian McCaffrey for the first time since he entered the league in 2017, it was a tremendous performance overall. They will need to match or even better this against the Cardinals, who are tipped by some to emerge as a dark horse Super Bowl contender if quarterback Kyler Murray continues his exceptional start to the season.

There is no telling just what another success is going to do for confidence in Carolina. Emerging from the opening quarter of the campaign with a 2-2 record can be considered a real achievement considering they didn’t have any preseason games to build chemistry. And there are also some winnable games coming up on the schedule.

Let’s take a look at four Panthers players who might be the most important in Week 4.
