CAROLINA PANTHERS The all-time series with the Panthers has swung decidedly in their favour in recent years not least due to their six-game winning streak that was ended on Monday Night Football in Oct 2016. The two teams met during Carolina’s expansion season in 1995 in a game played at Clemson University and then twice more before they became division rivals following the NFL re-alignment for the 2002 season. The Panthers also had a five-game win streak during that decade too. Tampa Bay and Carolina have never played in the exhibition season.
