The 2001 Carolina Panthers season was the seventh season for the team in the National Football League. They tried to improve upon their 7–9 record in 2000, and make it to the playoffs for the second time in franchise history; however, the season was a wreck. Not only were the Panthers unable to improve over their previous season, but they deteriorated even further dropping to an abysmal 1–15, losing 15 straight after beating the Minnesota Vikings in their opening game of the season. No other team before or since has lost fifteen straight after an opening win: the only other teams in NFL history to win their opener and lose the remainder of their games being the 1936 Philadelphia Eagles and the 1969 Pittsburgh Steelers.
