The Bengals definitely have a solid defense over there in Cincinnati, but Cam Newton possesses the ability to overcome tough challenges like that. This should be an all-around battle on both sides of the ball. A win for Carolina in a tough environment would boost the Panthers' momentum heading into another difficult scenario the following week.

4. Week 7 at Green Bay Packers

Reigning victorious at Lambeau Field is never an easy task for opposing teams. An exciting matchup is likely between the two, and Aaron Rodgers will make sure he does all he can to lock in the 'W' at home. Carolina will have to perform at their highest level in order to come out on top.

3. Week 8 vs. Seattle Seahawks

There's really no need for an explanation. A matchup against the defending Super Bowl champions will be one of the biggest games for any team this year. Luckily, the Panthers get to face the Seahawks at home, so maybe, just maybe Carolina ends up with the victory in Charlotte.

2. Week 10 at Philadelphia Eagles

The Monday night game in chilly Philly will be another difficult task for Carolina. The Eagles are emerging as one of the NFL's top offenses. The Panthers' defense will have some trouble containing a backfield consisting of LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, but a primetime win on the road could really boost the confidence of coach Ron Rivera's squad.

1. Week 14 at New Orleans Saints

In possibly the biggest game, a Carolina win on the road in New Orleans would be crucial. A division game is always important, especially when the Saints and Panthers are likely to be neck and neck all year. If Cam Newton's crew left the Big Easy with a 'W', they would be making a serious statement heading into the final weeks of the regular season. The race for the NFC South title is on.
