Determining any team's five best games in an NFL season is a difficult task. In fact, there’s really no objective way of going about it. And yet, it still might be pretty fun to talk about.
At the same time, there were definitely some undeniably great moments during the 2011 season for the Carolina Panthers. They had a new coaching staff, headed by Ron Rivera, and a new rookie quarterback, Cam Newton. And even though they didn't have a winning record or made a playoff appearance, they still managed to impress a lot of people.
Here was the Panthers' 2011 schedule:
|Week 1||Arizona Cardinals||L 28-21|
|Week 2||Green Bay Packers||L 30-23|
|Week 3||Jacksonville Jaguars||W 16-10|
|Week 4||Chicago Bears||L 34-29|
|Week 5||New Orleans Saints||L 30-27|
|Week 6 ||Atlanta Falcons||L 31-17|
|Week 7||Washington Redskins||W 33-20|
|Week 8||Minnesota Vikings||L 24-21|
|Week 10||Tennessee Titans||L 30-3|
|Week 11||Detroit Lions||L 49-35|
|Week 12||Indianapolis Colts||W 27-19|
|Week 13||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||W 38-19|
|Week 14||Atlanta Falcons||L 31-23|
|Week 15||Houston Texans||W 28-13|
|Week 16||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||W 48-16|
|Week 17||New Orleans Saints||L 45-17|
Keep in mind, when a team goes 6-10 in a season, you’re more than likely to pick some games that they didn’t win. Some of my picks were not just based on one criteria or another; they were based on particular events that I thought made games especially memorable.
Of course, not everyone will agree with my picks and that's okay; but feel to share which game you thought should be on the list.
