What are some burning questions Carolina Panthers fans have ahead of their Week 14 road game against the Seattle Seahawks?

There are plenty of fond and not-so-fond memories for Carolina Panthers fans when it comes to the Seattle Seahawks.

Many will remember Cam Newton’s go-ahead touchdown pass to Greg Olsen in the 2015 regular season matchup that catapulted the Panthers to a 14-0 start and a Super Bowl appearance.  Others will remember the stinging close losses prior to the aforementioned triumph.

It’s been six years since the franchise competed in the tough-to-play Lumen Field and a lot of change has happened since then. For example, the Newton vs. Russell Wilson clash is a thing of the past.

This time around, the Panthers will be starting Sam Darnold against the upstart Geno Smith, who is finally getting his time to shine as a potential quarterback the Seahawks can lean on going forward.

Carolina is coming off a much-needed bye heading into the home stretch of the season. With five games to go, there is still an outside chance this team could make the playoffs which means you can expect the Panthers to play tough, competitive football in the coming weeks.

This will be the biggest test for Steve Wilks’ team as he looks to establish himself as the permanent head coach in Carolina. And there’s just no telling what a win will do for his chances of securing the role long-term.

Without further ado, you, the fans have some questions that would like to be answered about what is next for your favorite football team. Let’s look at four such burning questions ahead of this weekend’s road matchup against the Seahawks.
