The Carolina Panthers face another stern test of their credentials when the San Francisco 49ers visit Bank of America Stadium in Week 5.

Plenty of strong character will be needed from everyone within the Carolina Panthers in Week 5. The San Francisco 49ers represent another mammoth challenge for Matt Rhule and his roster, with another loss anticipated by many after such a poor start to the 2022 campaign.

Rhule knows he’s a man under pressure. There are rumors swirling about David Tepper’s patience running out, although the billionaire hasn’t declared his feelings one way or another publicly since shortly before the NFL Draft.

San Francisco’s No. 1 defense is going to be a tough task to overcome. Especially considering how poorly the Panthers’ offense has performed under the guidance of Ben McAdoo.

Fans aren’t expecting much from Carolina in this one. But this could help the team relax a little more in pursuit of attaining a much-needed victory to get themselves back in the hunt.
