2016 Panthers Preview

Carolina Panthers fans are coming into the season with high expectations based on last year's Super Bowl run.  That doesn't mean there aren't concerns.  At the top of the concerns list has to be the secondary, although a strong front 7 should mask those.

I know I'm a fan, but looking at this schedule I really don't see why the Panthers don't win the NFC South fairly easily and make another strong run at a return trip to the Super Bowl.  It is possible that the Panthers run the table and finish the regular season undefeated.  Unlikely, but I wouldn't be all that surprised if it happened.

With that said I'm picturing a 14-2 or 13-3 finish.  Here are my picks.

Week 1 at Denver- W
Week 2 vs San Francisco- W
Week 3 vs Minnesota- W
Week 4 at Atlanta- L
Week 5 vs Tampa Bay- W
Week 6 at New Orleans- W
Week 7 BYE
Week 8 vs Arizona- W
Week 9 at Los Angeles- W
Week 10 vs Kansas City- W
Week 11 vs New Orleans- W
Week 12 at Oakland- W
Week 13 at Seattle- L
Week 14 vs San Diego- W
Week 15 at Washington- W
Week 16 vs Atlanta- W
Week 17 at Tampa Bay- W

14-2 NFC South Champs
