NFC South Best Bar Scenes Ranking: Where Do The Panthers Rank?

NFC South Best Bar Scenes Ranking: Where Do The Panthers Rank?
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

It’s been seven long years since the Carolina Panthers last tasted the glory that comes from reaching the NFL Playoffs, with the franchise posting their second-lowest win percentage (.118) in franchise history (after going 1-15/.006) in 2001.  

Unfortunately for Panthers fans, it seems like the confines around Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium aren’t much better, as Carolina ranked dead-last in the four-team NFC South when it came to gameday festivities, according to our metrics.  

Prepping your post-gameday activities? is helping NFL fans figure out what stadiums provide the best nighttime atmosphere to celebrate any event. Using our North Carolina sports betting mindset, we have to rank everything, so we created a scoring system factoring in bars within walking distance (0.5 miles) of the stadium, average Google Review of the bars, and each team’s record from the 2023-24 season to rank the best bar scene in the NFC South.

Where Panthers Rank in NFC South

Of the four teams in the NFC South, the Panthers’ score of 44 ranked well behind the others, with the Atlanta Falcons being the next closest team by our metrics, coming in at 81.2.  

The leader in the NFC South revelry race was the party-centric New Orleans Saints, who scored 122.9 points in total, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the next closest team, at 82.9.  

Sadly, for Panthers fans, it seems like the team’s position in the NFC South is likely to be the same on the field in 2024, with oddsmakers from Bet365 giving the Panthers the longest odds of any franchise to win their division, at +1100.  It's safe to assume the Panthers playoff chances will be somewhat of a challenge this upcoming season.

That total puts Carolina well behind the Falcons (-120), Buccaneers (+300), and Saints (+350), illustrating just how far the franchise has fallen from their glory days under head coach Ron Rivera when the Panthers reached a Super Bowl in 2015 and made the postseason four times in five years between 2013 and 2017.
