Carolina Panthers Opponents 2024: Cowboys, Chiefs and Bengals Come to Town, Visit Eagles, Buccaneers

The full 2024 NFL schedule is not out just yet, but every team knows the opponents they will face. Who will the Carolina Panthers square off with in 2024?

Although the NFL has not yet released a full 2024 schedule with times and dates for the upcoming season’s games, we do know which opponents all 32 teams will face in 2024 along with the split of home and road games.

The Carolina Panthers locked in a fourth-place finish in the NFC South last season and will play the entire NFC East and AFC West next season.

The Panthers will have nine home games on the schedule in the regular season next year and eight road trips.

Panthers Face Tough Home Slate

The Panthers will face a star-studded home slate in 2024. Superstar AFC quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow will make appearances in Charlotte, N.C., while the Cowboys will also be a big draw.

The Panthers happened to get the last-place team in the AFC North this year, which was a Bengals team that didn’t have its starting quarterback for much of the year yet still finished with a winning record in a tough division. They also have a handful of opponents with traveling fans that could diminish their home-field advantage.

Additionally, one of their home games is going to be played in Munich, Germany.

On paper, the away slate looks much easier than the home slate. The Eagles are trying to recover from a late-season collapse, and the Commanders are fresh off hitting the reset button. The Raiders and Broncos are somewhere in the middle while the Bears are up and coming but not quite there.

In a sense, the Panthers caught a good break as they face what will likely be tougher opponents at home and have easier matchups on the road.

The Panthers are coming off of a rough season as they had the worst record in the league at 2-15.

The team fired head coach Frank Reich after a 1-10 start, and general manager Scott Fitterer was dismissed after the Panthers were shut out in their final two games.

Young had one of the worst rookie seasons ever among quarterbacks taken No. 1 overall. His 11 touchdown passes are tied for the fewest of any quarterback in NFL history with more than 500 pass attempts. Young’s 5.5 yards per pass attempt are the fourth fewest ever (minimum 500 attempts). He had eight games without a touchdown pass, tied for second-most by a No. 1 overall pick.

While Young bears some responsibility for his 10.5% sack rate (fourth worst in the league), the Panthers’ offensive line fell apart, finishing in the bottom 10 in pass-rush and run-block win rate.

In January, the Panthers hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dave Canales as their next head coach. Canales replaces interim head coach Chris Tabor, who filled in for the fired Frank Reich at midseason.

The franchise will hope that Canales can help get the team back on track this upcoming season.
