Which games on the 2021 schedule come with interesting storylines where the Carolina Panthers are concerned?

It promises to be a fascinating season for the Carolina Panthers in 2021. Everything seems to be in place for some real progress when competitive action begins outside of the obvious question marks. There will also be some additional pressure on the shoulders of Matt Rhule and his staff with one year of experience now under their belts.

The Panthers were notably aggressive in their pursuit to get better this offseason.

This was evident both during free agency and the 2021 NFL Draft, with their bold move to acquire Sam Darnold from the New York Jets something else that brings feast or famine prospects to the organization.

Carolina is projected to have the league’s youngest roster next season. Inexperience is something that’s normally associated with Super Bowl contending teams.

However, if the Panthers can show promise and turn competitive performances into more wins, there is nothing to suggest they cannot become one of the surprise packages when it’s all said and done.

The upcoming campaign has also thrown some potentially huge storylines involving the Panthers, which adds yet another dimension to what is sure to be another rollercoaster campaign for everyone associated with the franchise.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at four contests in particular that come with a significant amount of intrigue.
