2014 Carolina Panthers Road Schedule
This is a team that nobody is going to take lightly this season – not
after what they did in 2013. Though they weren't one of the favorites heading into the season, the Panthers dominated their
opponents throughout the season on the way to a 12-4 record and an NFC South divisional title. The Panthers have seen significant
growth and maturity from quarterback Cam Newton since making him the top overall pick in the NFL Draft, and that has gone
a long way into steadying this Carolina offense. But the real story of the 2013 Panthers season was the emergence of the team's
defensive unit as one of the best in the league, which will have fans eager to get back on the road to travel with the team
The Panthers sill surely have one of their biggest games of the 2014 season when they visit the New Orleans
Saints in The Big Easy on Dec. 7, a game that is sure to be one of the most anticipated of the year. But fans also don't have
to wait that long for a big road game, as a matchup against Baltimore on Sept. 28 is assured to have plenty of Panthers' gear,
as will games in Cincinnati (Oct. 12), Philadelphia (Nov. 10) and Minnesota (Nov. 30). Put it all together and the Panthers
are sure be right in the thick of some unbelievable road games this season as they look to once again claim the divisional
title, giving fans all the incentive they need to make the Panthers the centerpiece of a road trip.
Panthers Team Info
The Carolina Panthers had their best season in quite a while in 2013, the best of the Cam Newton
era. Newton has made real strides as a passer and decision-maker, which fits perfectly with the makeup of this team perfectly.
Newton doesn't have to blow the opposition away for this Carolina team to be successful either, as the Carolina defense is
amongst the best defensive units in the league. The Panthers defense went on quite the roll last season after shutting out
the New York Giants in Week 3, and held opponents to 10 points or less on several occasions last year. The Panthers have their
eye on the postseason again in 2013, and they might just get there with all of the talent they have on both sides of the ball,
as this is a well-balanced team that can win in any number of ways.
