2016-2017 Carolina Panthers News
No franchise is more excited about the beginning of the NFL season than whichever team comes up short in the previous Super Bowl. The Carolina Panthers have had a long offseason to think about the year that could have been, and now they finally get to start trying to work their way back for a shot at the Lombardi Trophy. While a few players moved on to other teams, the Panther’s offense remains primarily intact, with Cam Newton looking to build on his MVP season. Carolina has some decent pre-season competition with the Patriots on August 26 and the Steelers on September 1. Tickets for the game against the Pats start at $38, while fans can get seats for the Steelers game for as low as $32.
Last season, Cam Newton led the Carolina Panthers to a 15-1 season, taking the team all the way to the Super Bowl before ultimately losing to the Broncos. Newton had his best season yet, rushing for 10 touchdowns and passing for 35 more. Despite all his success, he is still in the hot seat and being encouraged to improve his game. Ron Rivera, head coach for the Panthers, has challenged Newton this offseason by helping him to improve his footwork, technique, delivery and mental aspects of the game. Will Newton lead the Panthers to yet another Super Bowl? The season kicks for Carolina Aug. 11 at Baltimore. Tickets for that game are on sale now for only $11 and up.
