What things should Carolina Panthers fans be thankful for as the country gets set to celebrate Thanksgiving in 2021?

Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the year. It’s a time for families to come together, appreciate what they have and for NFL fans across the country, there is plenty of football to enjoy.

The Carolina Panthers don’t have a Thursday game for Thanksgiving this year. Giving them an extra few days of preparation before their do-or-die clash at the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 that will go a long way to determining their playoff aspirations.

That’s not to say the Panthers haven’t had success on Thanksgiving before. Who could forget their complete annihilation of the Dallas Cowboys in 2015 during the team’s memorable run to the Super Bowl that eventually came up just short against the Denver Broncos?

Although it’s been something of an up and down campaign for the Panthers, here are five things that fans can be thankful for regarding their team this season.

Carolina Panthers plans at Rock Hill

It’s easy to forget with everything going on from a playing and personnel standpoint, but the Panthers are also making some considerable plans to completely shift the dynamic off the field with an ambitious, sensational project at Rock Hill.

Construction is well underway regarding Carolina’s new headquarters, which is going to revolutionize operations and see the Panthers become an industry leader away from the gridiron in keeping what the grand proposals team owner David Tepper envisaged when he bought the franchise from Jerry Richardson.

This is sure to make the Panthers a more attractive destination for big-name free agents. Although they’ll have to put a better product together where it counts to further enhance their status across the league.
