If we win again next week and put up 30 plus points and can cap-off the season with an unlikely win in Alejandro's back-yard, how many prime-time games do you predict we get next year?

If we lose to New Orleans, I think we might get one Thursday Nite game, just through happenstance.
If we do beat Oakland and then somehow beat the Taints in the finale, I can see the tide turning and predict the Panthers will get one of each, one Monday night game, one Thursday night game and one Sunday night game.

Executives didn't get in their positions by being stupid. If we win-out and get the, "No one wants to play the Panthers right now" at the end of the season and Luke gets DROY honors, there is a lot of attractive reasons to put us in the spotlight.

Loose-out, let Kuechly fall out of sight because of such and we will be lucky to see more than a mention on the 4-letter network next year as the schedules are released.

What think ye, the Huddle?

2 just like this year. A Thursday nighter and a Sunday/Monday nighter. Still aren't sexy enough for the big time. Gotta win big games.

Everyone gets at least a Thursday night game with the new scheduling.

Winning on MNF was good for us, but the Eagles were bad... If we could have kept it competitive with the Giants instead of being blown out I think we could have managed more night games.

I think we could win the next two games by blowout and still get only minimal prime time exposure.

At the national level, this team is still pretty low profile (even with the attention Newton draws).

Not expecting much.

What we do in garbage time this season will have little to no impact on our prime time schedule next year. Finishing a terrible season well just doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things.

String together a few playoff seasons, even if they're Falcons style one and done seasons, and you'll see more prime time exposure. I expect it won't change until then.

We'll get a thursday night game against a mediocre opponent (most likely on the road) Bills, Dolphins, or Lions would be my guess.

I do think we'll play New England in a slot other than 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. It may very well be a 4:25 Kickoff at home.

The matchup of Cam vs Brady is pretty appealing.

Probably same deal as this year. One Thurs, plus a Sunday or Monday night game. I hope for more but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

Monday night against Atlanta. The past 4 games have been interesting and the trash talk and hatred went up even more this year.

I guess you dont know how scheduling works but all east cost teams that play at home are 1pm games. Mid west/West coast teams play at 4:05-4:25pm. Sunday games are prime time where no matter where the game is its at 8. unless its west coast where its at 10. if we play the pats its either at 1pm or 8pm
