Call It - Season Opener 2013

As a change of pace, let's try to predict the Panthers 2013 season opener. First, the slate:

Home: Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, Rams, Seahawks, Giants, Patriots and Jets

Away: Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, Cardinals, 49ers, Vikings, Bills and Dolphins

Here are some stats regarding our openers in the recent past:

  • 4 of last 5, and last 3, have been road openers
  • 4 of last 5, and last 3, have been NFC opponents
  • Last year's opener being a divisional game was the first since 2006 (vs Falcons, incidentally 2005 was also a divisional opener, vs Saints)

Given the stats above, I'm going to say we get at the least, a home opener this season. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it'll be an AFC opponent. I also think the more high-profile opponents we face next year (SF, NE, NYG, ATL, NO) will either be scheduled to take on more "glamours" opponents Week 1 or are potential primetime opponents, and I believe Week 1 we will be opening at our usual slot, Sunday at 1PM. Therefore, my guess is Panthers vs Jets.

Your theory is sound. I would say ATL or Jets.

Whomever it is, I'll say it's a loss based upon their history of slow starts.
