After settling for a wild-card berth when New Orleans secured the division via a tiebreaker last season, Rivera and the rest of the Panthers’ management aren’t letting a change in ownership distract them from their goal.
They brought in Norv Turner to maximize Cam Newton’s game and work on replacing Jonathan Stewart and Andrew Norwell. Julius Peppers is back for another year to lead the defense. But a Super Bowl…?
This is how we see the Carolina Panthers’ 2018 season unfolding, game-by-game:
Week 1: Cowboys (0-0) at Panthers (0-0)
For only the second time in Ron Rivera’s eight year in Carolina, the Panthers open their season at home. Dallas comes in to start life without Jason Witten and Dez Bryant. Their young backfield stars, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, are expected to carry the offense.
Carolina’s defense knows their job gets easier one of two guys is going to have the ball. Dallas is still looking for a few answers. They won’t be ready for Carolina on opening day. (Panthers 21-13)
Week 2: Panthers (1-0) at Falcons (0-1)
Atlanta lost to Philadelphia in Week 1 and comes home to take on two more playoff contenders in the Panthers and Saints.
Carolina is less than sympathetic. Norv Turner puts all his young and speedy backs and receivers on display around Cam Newton. Atlanta doesn’t know what to make of that. Matt Ryan can’t counter the Panther attack. (Panthers 24-14)
Week 3: Bengals (0-2) at Panthers (2-0)
Cincinnati is off to a slow start with two new coordinators and Marvin “Can’t Touch This” Lewis. Fans are not sure if Lewis knows the season started.
Carolina keeps the clock running as much as possible while showcasing its running repertoire. (Panthers 26-10)
Week 4: The Panthers are on their bye week.
Week 5: Giants (2-2) at Panthers 3-0)
Former general manager Dave Gettleman returns with his new charges. He makes it a point to visit the new Panthers owner, but still won’t share why the former owner fired him.
The Giants own two upset victories at home in the middle of a difficult first-half schedule. The Giants are not home today. This is the Panthers’ house. And that means another Panther victory. (Panthers 20-16)
Week 6: Panthers (4-0) at Redskins (1-4)
Alex Smith understands already that this quarterback thing is way more difficult when the skill players around you are average, at best.
Cam Newton can’t relate. Chris McCaffrey is well on his way to 200 carries. Devin Funchess is a top-ten fantasy receiver. Life is better in Carolina. (Panthers 24-14)
Week 7: Panthers (5-0) at Eagles (6-0)
Philadelphia is going crazy over their Eagles. Every home game isanother Super Bowl. With the second undefeated team coming to their house in three weeks, it is bedlam.
Julius Peppers has his defense ready for battle. The young stars on offense, however, are distracted by the noise and visuals. The Panthers fall short against the defending champs. (Eagles 20-17)
Week 8: Ravens (3-4) at Panthers (5-1)
Baltimore is in a nosedive after opening the season with three straight wins. It is hard to say if his new receivers are not as good as advertised or if Flacco is just farther past his prime than we thought.
Today, they come out with some urgency and Alex Collins proves elusive. But Cam Newton’s crew comes out ahead in a close game. (Panthers 23-20)
Week 9: Buccaneers (2-5) at Panthers (6-1)
Tampa Bay found itself in an 0-5 hole to start the season. Victories over the Browns and Bengals aren’t fooling anyone into thinking they are much better than that.
They do have a defense with fight in it. But Jameis Winston can’t get his offense moving at all. It’s a boring win for the home team. (Panthers 17-7)
Week 10: Panthers (7-1) at Steelers (5-3)
Pittsburgh is strolling through the season with no one challengingfor the AFC North title. They host a Thursday Night game in front of a mostly docile crowd.
Carolina’s defense has another listless game, but they don’t need to do much as their defense bottles up Big Ben and Le’Veon Bell. (Panthers 16-10)
Week 11: Panthers (8-1) at Lions (5-4)
Matt Patricia’s impact on the Lions’ attitude and game plan is obvious. Coming off two losses, though, has them at risk of falling back to .500- the kind of mediocre team the Lions fans are used to.
Carolina knows no lead is safe in Detroit with Matthew Stafford and his speedy receivers around. Maybe that’s why they decide not to take a lead. This time, the Panthers can’t get around a rough day from the offense. (Lions 24-16)
Week 12: Seahawks (3-7) at Panthers (8-2)
Struggling offense don’t normally fare well against Seattle. But this isn’t your father’s Seahawk team. The Legion of Boom has left the building, as have several other injured and retired players.
Some alone time in the film room with his new coordinator seems to help Cam Newton. Carolina’s offense might be getting on track. (Panthers 24-14)
Week 13: Panthers (9-2) at Buccaneers (3-8)
Ryan Fitzpatrick is under center for the Buccaneers as the search continues for their missing offense. He hardly puts on a show, but his defense makes him a surprise winner in Week 13.
Rivera and Turner shrug off a terrible performance by Newton as the result of a great defensive effort, but fans are starting to question whether Cam is the right guy for the job in Carolina. (Buccaneers 17-9)
Week 14: Panthers (9-3) at Browns (4-8)
Cleveland is coming off a shocking upset of the first-place Texans in Houston. Carolina has been pulled into a three-way race for the NFC South title with three games coming up against the two other contenders.
Cam Newton looks fine against Cleveland, but amazingly, fans are not appeased. As predicted at the beginning of the season, Carolina’s postseason aspirations come down to the final three games. (Panthers 20-10)
Week 15: Saints (8-5) at Panthers (10-3)
Carolina is in the driver’s seat. A win against the Saints would eliminate New Orleans and put Atlanta’s hopes in jeopardy. Turner spends as much time with Newton as he can. Carolina has not been in a shootout all season, but Drew Brees and Matt Ryan present that risk.
Not this week. In front of a Monday Night crowd, the defenses take over. It’s a rock ‘em – sock ‘em NFC North battle. Punters get tired. Finally, the Panthers make a mistake and Brees makes them pay. (Saints 16-13)
Week 16: Falcons (9-5) at Panthers (10-4)
Once again, the Panthers have a chance to eliminate one of the contenders. But the Falcons come in as the favorite after winning six of their last seven games. Carolina has dropped three of their last five.
It is another nail-biter. Newton shows flashes of his old self, scrambling for first downs and hitting passes on the roll. Matt Ryan patiently waits for open receivers. Neither running game is a factor. The Panthers settle for two field goals early, which allows a late extra point to make the difference. (Falcons 21-20)
Week 17: Panthers (10-5) at Saints (10-5)
It all comes down to this for the Panthers. It is win or go home. With a loss, they are ousted from the postseason by a tie-breaker. Rivera is stoic during the week as he talks to the Press about missed opportunities and fate.
This one will be over early. Drew Brees surprises the Panthers by throwing often and deep right from the start. The running game becomes an afterthought until mistakes from the Panthers’ young stars makes running the clock down the right thing to do.
What happens next?
Rivera says he’ll pay the fine for barring the press from the locker room after the game. Newton faces an offseason of questions about his career path. The new owners will decide if this is a good time to bring in their own people.
