The first big challenge for the Panthers will be in Week 4 when they travel to Foxborough to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots, who came back from 25 points down in the fourth quarter to destroy the Falcons’ hopes and dreams.
The Panthers should be 3-0 heading into this matchup, and while they will give the Patriots everything they can handle I think this will be the first time the Panthers come up with the short end of the stick. It will be a close game, but I think Tom Brady will do just enough to end the Panthers’ undefeated season.
Score prediction: Patriots 24 – Panthers 20
