Thursday night the NFL released the regular season schedules for all 32 teams. The COVID-19 pandemic could eventually alter the schedule when it comes to how many games are played, when the season will start/end, etc. But as of now, we have ourselves a normal 16-game slate.
The Carolina Panthers are heading into year one in the Matt Rhule era and if we are being honest, things aren't going to come easy.. Tom Brady will now lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Falcons added Todd Gurley, and the Saints? Well, they are loaded as always. Outside of the division, the Panthers have some extremely difficult matchup including road trips to Kansas City, Minnesota, Green Bay, and Los Angeles (Chargers).
