Which lesser-known members of the Arizona Cardinals should worry the Carolina Panthers ahead of their Week 4 clash at Bank of America Stadium?

Another Carolina Panthers gameday is officially upon us. Matt Rhule’s side is looking to make it two straight wins against the Arizona Cardinals at Bank of America Stadium this afternoon, who hold out strong ambitions for a playoff spot this season.

Getting to a .500 record after four weeks of the campaign would represent a significant achievement for the Carolina Panthers, especially when one considers the manner in which they started. The roster and coaching staff deserve a tremendous amount of credit for turning things around and coming together as a unit in the face of adversity, which has no doubt told the head coach plenty about the sort of characters he is working with.

This is something that is usually evident during the preseason, but this is a season like no other and the Panthers are learning as they go. There has been some good and plenty of bad early on. However, if they can keep developing then it is sure to stand them in good stead in their bid to become a contender in the near future.

It is still early on in a substantial rebuild transpiring in Carolina. But fans will now know that they need to take the rough with the smooth during this period of transition.

They need to be at their best to try and limit the Cardinals’ exceptional offensive weapons, who are led by their stud quarterback Kyler Murray and All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

There are some lesser-known individuals who can make a real difference if not given the proper respect. Here are four such players that the Panthers need to monitor closely.
