The 2017 Carolina Panthers are ready to bounce back and take over the NFC South. Cam Newton hopes offseason surgery on his rotator cuff gets him back into 2015 MVP form. One thing is for sure for Newton, he’ll have a weapon to give the ball to. The Panthers selected RB Christian McCaffrey in the 2017 NFL Draft. McCaffrey will help solidify a running game that also stars Jonathan Stewart but McCaffrey can also line up at slot receiver and return kicks. The Panthers didn’t just stop at McCaffrey, they selected WR Curtis Samuel in the second round who has a similar skill set to McCaffrey. Newton will have his favorite target back, TE Greg Olsen. Along with Olsen, Newton’s supporting cast includes Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess at wide receiver.
On defense, the Carolina Panthers added veteran Julius Peppers to help improve their sack count. Luke Kuechly is a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Kuechly is one of the league’s best all-around defenders but has suffered concussions over the course of the past three seasons. Charles Johnson, James Bradberry and Shaq Thompson help round out a defense that should improve from a year ago.
In 2017 at Bank of America Stadium, the Carolina Panthers home opponents will include the home opener versus the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football, Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football, Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Christmas Eve.
