What are some of the instant takeaways from the Carolina Panthers’ superb win against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4 at Bank of America Stadium?

The Carolina Panthers got back to .500 with their most dominant victory in some time. This was as complete a performance as we have seen from this new-look roster under Matt Rhule and was further evidence that the organization is heading in the right direction.

This was a game that the Carolina Panthers dominated from start to finish. They pulled out to a lead early and matched this with a consistency that has been sorely missing under the previous regime in recent years. For them to be at 2-2 during this stage of their rebuild is a fantastic achievement that should mean bigger and better things could well be in their immediate future.

The Cardinals are tipped by many to make their presence felt in the postseason in 2020. But they were outclassed by a Panthers team that has made remarkable strides in their first month together on the field.

There is just no telling how much more momentum this is going to generate. Carolina has some winnable games coming up over the next few weeks, two of which are against the Atlanta Falcons, so a winning record looks a lot more likely now than it did at any point during an unprecedented offseason of disruption.

Let’s take a look at four instant takeaways from a memorable 31-21 victory for the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium.
