New York @ Carolina
Last Season Records: Carolina 5-11; New York 2-14
What to Know
The Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets will face off at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at Bank of America Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Carolina struggled last year, ending up 5-11. Likewise, returning after a rocky 2-14 season, New York is aiming to prove that the past does not define them.
A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Panthers were fifth worst when it came to passing touchdowns last year, with the squad coming up with only 16 overall. The Jets experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked worst with respect to overall offensive touchdowns last year, where the team accrued only 25. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
Carolina is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
