Carolina Panthers 2014 NFL Schedule


Mark your calendars, the 2014 NFL schedules were released. For the Carolina Panthers they won’t have the hardest road to the playoffs based off their opponents records from last season. With a combined .473 opponent winning percentage for the 2014 schedule, the Panthers aren’t taking anything for granted as they face two new head coaches in the opening two games. The Panthers will also be apart of three primetime games, each being slotted as a different primetime game.

They will first face-off against the divisional opponent Tampa Bay Buccaneers under new head coach Lovie Smith in week one. As we all know, the last two outings vs. Lovie Smith’s Chicago Bears, the Panthers came home empty with two road loses. They then host two home games against new head coach Jim Caldwell and his Detroit Lions, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Then the game all Panthers fans have been waiting for, the Steve Smith match-up. Mark it down, Week 4 as the Panthers take on the Baltimore Ravens, “there will be blood and guts everywhere!”

After taking on the Chicago Bears at Home and then going on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals, the next five games will be the toughest. As they face five consecutive 2013 playoff teams. The journey starts at Lambeau Field as they take on the Green Bay Packers. Then they will have a two game home stretch, playing the defending Super Bowl Champions Seattle Seahawks and taking on the New Orleans Saints Thursday night. The stretch will end with an away Monday night battle with the Philadelphia Eagles. After five tough games, they will play divisional opponent Atlanta Falcons at home, before they go on their Week 12 bye.

Coming off the bye, the Panthers will face their entire NFC South Division opponents. First they will face the Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium, and then travel to the Superdome vs. the New Orleans Saints the following week. They then will have two home games, going up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Cleveland Browns. As usual to finish the season, they will take on the Atlanta Falcons at the the Georgia Dome.

It will definitely be an exciting season, featuring three primetime games. For the Carolina Panthers, the road to the playoffs won’t be guaranteed, but definitely could be slightly easier than last season.
