Carolina Panthers: 2013 Week 4 NFL Nation Buzz

It's easy to point to a five-game stretch on the schedule, beginning in Week 6 with trips to Cincinnati and Green Bay, followed by home games against Seattle and New Orleans and a visit to Philadelphia. Those teams were a combined 53-26-1 last season, with four winning their division and all five making the playoffs. However, I'm going to go with the first four games, at Tampa Bay, home against Detroit and Pittsburgh and at Baltimore. The Carolina Panthers have started 1-3 in each of their past three seasons. Another slow start followed by the five-game stretch above and they're done.
