The Panthers make a push for the playoffs and lose the NFC Championship.
After injuries sidelined the Carolina Panthers in 2004, Jake Delhomme and his teammates were determined to get back to another Super Bowl. Throughout the year, the Panthers struggled with inconsistency, ultimately making the playoffs by coming out on top in a must-win Week 17 game. They then surged through the playoffs, shutting out the Giants, and taking down the formidable Bears. However, inconsistency once again reared its ugly head as the Carolina Panthers fell to Seattle in the NFC Championship game.
