Carolina Panthers 2016 Regular Season Schedule.

Behold Panthers fans, it's time to start putting in all that vacation time you have been saving to spend in Charlotte and on the road with the Roaring Riot. Or you can plan ahead when to use that sick time. Whatever your style, the 2016 regular season schedule is here! 

Of course we knew early Thursday afternoon that the Panthers would be traveling to Denver for season kickoff and Super Bowl 50 rematch for Thursday night football. Shortly after we learned the final game of the season would take place in Tampa Bay on New Years day. Other rumors had us at home against Arizona in week eight, and in Seattle for Sunday Night Football in week 13 in a potentially big NFC show down just before the playoffs. Well, here's how it all panned out.

SB50 Officiating a Major Turn-Off for Many Fans

...including this fan. 

First off, let me be clear: I'm not blaming Carolina's Super Bowl loss on the officiating.

A Final Prediction On This Season: Super Bowl 50 Panthers vs Broncos

As the season began, I started my weekly predictions for the first time in my new journey and hobby of writing and analyzing. Through the first few weeks against slightly lesser opponents, I picked the Panthers each week. As I watched the team mold and grow, I found myself picking them every week right into Super Bowl 50. After about week six, I caught myself smiling as I typed, thinking "I really believe this team just can't lose right now." i kept it to myself in hopes of not jinxing anything all season. We had one slip, but we haven't and shouldn't have another.

A Passing of the Torch? Manning vs Newton Makes for a Perfect Super Bowl 50

The NFL originally wanted the halftime show to include artists who could represent everything over the years in music for the 50th Super Bowl Anniversary.  It turns out, however, that the quarterbacks of the two teams may capture the legacy vein in the music's stead.  On an anniversary where everything is outlined in gold for Super Bowl 50, the match-up at quarterback for this historic mark in football is just as golden.
