Why the Panthers Will Shock the NFL World and Make the Playoffs in 2024

The Panthers would not be the first team to complete the rags-to-riches turnaround, but things are certainly looking up for 2023’s last-place team.

Calling the Carolina Panthers’ 2023 season a “disaster” is practically a compliment. Perhaps “calamity” or “catastrophe” would more completely convey the degree of unmitigated failure that was the Panthers’ season.

Frank Reich — and his “all-star” coaching staff — was supposed to be a major strength for the Panthers, yet he became the second successive sideline boss to receive a midseason pink slip.

Making matters as bad as they can possibly be, the Panthers were not even compensated for their struggles. The Chicago Bears controlled the No. 1 overall pick the Panthers’ 2-15 record “earned”. This isn’t about rehashing the Panthers’ nightmarish 2023 — or the nightmare that’s been the Panthers’ organization since owner David Tepper bought the team. It’s about explaining why they will play beyond Week 18 in 2024.

It’s not especially uncommon for teams to go from last place one season into the playoffs the next. It’s an accomplishment the Panthers have achieved twice — 2003 and 2017 — and there have even been multiple instances of 3-13 teams completing the quick turnaround.

Instead of continuing to serve as the butt of jokes and wisecracks in 2024, the Panthers will make waves for the right reasons and earn a playoff berth. They’re +800 at DraftKings Sportsbook to punch a ticket into the 2024 postseason, so a $10 wager would pay $90 total ($80 in winnings plus original $10 stake).

Producing winning football requires a high level of performance across the organization, not just the team. For now, however, we’re focused specifically on the coaching staff and improved offense as two of the primary driving forces behind Carolina’s elevated success this season.
