What big changes should the Carolina Panthers consider making in Week 6 when they take on the Minnesota Vikings?

Feeling sorry for yourself and looking back on a disappointing loss isn’t going to do anyone associated with the Carolina Panthers any good. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory at home to the Philadelphia Eagles saw more questions than answers emerge regarding the team’s chances in 2021, which is a far cry from the increased expectations through the opening three weeks of the campaign.

This is a huge test of character for Matt Rhule and his players. The head coach has been criticized for his management of in-game situations – and rightfully so – which is an ongoing complication that needs eradicating at the earliest possible opportunity.

Things don’t get much easier for the Panthers this Sunday when they host the Minnesota Vikings – a team that could be much better than their 2-3 record suggests.

Mike Zimmer’s men could easily be 4-1 had it not been for a missed kick at the Arizona Cardinals and failure to take advantage of holding the Cleveland Browns to just 14 points. They are a very hard team to work out, which only makes things more difficult for Carolina in Week 6.

Those in power will be brainstorming their gameplan as we speak. On this topic, we took a look at four big changes the Panthers should consider making for the contest.
