The Carolina Panthers are potentially a team on the rise in the NFL, with the struggling franchise seemingly ready to return to its winning ways after a few years of disappointment.

The Panthers also have the advantage of being in a division that is up for grabs with no clearcut favorite to win the AFC South division title, which bodes well for their chances of making the playoffs next season.NEXT: Panthers Set To Honor 2 Franchise Legends This Season
