5. Panthers (+270) at Seahawks, 2015-16

That marked the Panthers’ fifth straight win to open the season in which they reached Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos.

The Panthers paid a visit to Kirk Cousins and the now-Commanders and pulled off a 26-15 road win as +261 underdogs.

The 0-2 Panthers paid a visit to the Los Angeles to face the 1-1 Chargers and raced out to an 18-7 halftime advantage. 

The Chargers did their best to make a comeback, but Carolina held on 21-16 for their sixth-largest moneyline upset over the last 10 years. 

9. Panthers (+225) at Texans, 2019-20

In another low-scoring contest, the Panthers used a 6-0 fourth quarter to win 16-10 over the Texans.
