The Panthers joined the NFL in 1993 and were one of two expansion teams to begin play in 1995 — along with Jacksonville. They finished their first season at 7-9, an all-time best for NFL expansion teams in their first season of play. In their second season, the Panthers improved to 12-4 and lost the conference championship to the eventual Super Bowl champions. They did not have another winning season after that until 2003.
They play their home games at Bank of America Stadium in downtown Charlotte, N.C., and they are one of the few franchises in the NFL to actually own the stadium they play in.
The Panthers have reached the playoffs seven times, advancing to four NFC championship games and two Super Bowls — in 2003 and 2015. They have won six division titles. The club, which according to Forbes in 2013 is worth approximately $1.56 billion, is controlled by founder Jerry Richardson and his family, who have a 48 per cent stake in the team.
Their all-time team leaders include running back DeAngelo Williams, 6,846 rushing yards, quarterback Cam Newton, 21,772 passing yards, and Steve Smith, 12,197 receiving yards.

Carolina Panthers Online Betting Tips
The Panthers appeared unstoppable in 2015 — a league-best 15-1 record and a trip to Super Bowl 50. And then they crashed in 2016, finishing last in the NFC South at 6-10 and just 1-5 in division play, even though they were favored in 11 of their 16 games last season.
It was the first time Carolina missed the playoffs since 2012.
There’s no question that this is Cam Newton’s team. The Panthers will only win if the former league MVP is on his game and healthy, and that’s a question mark now as the star quarterback rehabs from shoulder surgery. He suffered his worst quarterback rating of his career in 2016, throwing for just 19 touchdowns while being picked off 14 times.
Other than having to open on the road for the sixth time in seven seasons, the Panthers won’t have much to complain about with a 2017 schedule that is favorable for a fast start. If Newton is healthy, Carolina can certainly climb out of the division basement.
