The Carolina Panthers are a Charlotte, North Carolina-based professional American football club. The Panthers compete in the National Football League’s National Football Conference South division. When the team was created in 1993 and when it first began competing in 1995, Jerry Richardson was its original owner and founder.
In their first two seasons, the Panthers did a commendable job, finishing 7-9 in 1995 and 12-4 in 1996, winning the NFC West before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The Carolina Panthers continue to be the NFC’s newest franchise. The majority of league owners decided in May 2018 to approve David Tepper’s acquisition of the team from Jerry Richardson, who founded it. In the US, the club is estimated to be worth $2.3 billion.
In 2020, the Panthers faced several obstacles and suffered a series of close losses. They had three victories to start the 2021 campaign, but by the conclusion of the year, they had a 5-12 record and a seven-game losing skid.
The three other NFC South teams that have established acrimonious rivalries with the Panthers are the Atlanta Falcons, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints. The team’s fiercest competitors are the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, not the New Orleans Saints.
