Five Panthers Games To Watch In 2014

The start of the NFL's regular season is still more than three months away, but it's never too early to start looking ahead for most football fans. Here are a couple of games fans may be marking down on their calendars.

Week Three vs. Steelers: It’s always a big game when Pittsburgh rolls into Charlotte, and the fact that the game will be played on Sunday night should only add to the anticipation of this early-season matchup.

Week Four at Baltimore: This matchup turned from a garden-variety NFC South vs. AFC North matchup to Steve Smith vs. the Panthers when he signed with the Ravens this offseason. The recently-departed receiver will line up against the Panthers for the first time after spending his entire 13-year career in Carolina.

Week Eight vs. Seahawks: Russell Wilson and Co. will travel to Charlotte for the third season in a row, but this time they’ll be defending Super Bowl champions. The Panthers went 0-2 against the Seahawks in those meetings, but lost by a combined five points. This game could have big NFC Playoff implications if both teams play up to expectations.

Week Nine vs. Saints: Last season these two teams fought to the finish for the NFC South Division title with Carolina edging out New Orleans. There is a fairly good chance that could happen again in 2014, so this Thursday Night matchup could give the winner a big leg up.

Week 17 at Atlanta: Carolina closes out the regular season in familiar fashion, in the Georgia Dome against their rivals to the south. Last season the Panthers took advantage of a weak Falcons squad and celebrated its first division title in half a decade on their rival's field. Will the Panthers be in a celebratory mood once this year’s game is over?
