Cam Newton (1) and Drew Brees (9) will each have a major say in whether or not his team makes it to the NFL playoffs this season.

The Carolina Panthers will have at least one decided advantage against nearly every opponent they face this season, and how well Ron Rivera's team maximizes its opportunities against NFC South divisional foes will determine whether or not the Panthers make the NFL playoffs in 2013.

Carolina's regular season begins with a hot and heavy dose of divisional action by playing every team in the NFC South in the first four weeks.

The Panthers' first game of the season is on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they will host the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 and the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4.

Carolina will play six non-divisional games before resuming their NFC South schedule with a home game against the Buccaneers in Week 11.

The Panthers will close out their divisional season with a visit to Atlanta in Week 14 before heading to New Orleans to wrap up the regular season in Week 17.

Here is a look at Carolina's advantages against each of their NFC South rivals and how they will fare within the division in 2012.
