Starting off with Seattle is brutal, but then they don't play another team who made the playoffs last season until Week 7. And the Panthers might not be a playoff caliber team anymore after all the players they lost this offseason due to their tight salary cap. It gives them a pretty good chance of starting off the season strong.

Their mid-season stretch is tough with three games in six weeks against 2013 playoff teams (Saints, Eagles, Patriots), but then their last four against non-2013 playoff teams.

Nothing is a gimme, but that's a decent schedule.
