The 2004 Carolina Panthers season was the tenth season for the team in the National Football League. They tried to improve upon their record in 2003, a year when they fell 29–32 in Super Bowl XXXVIII to the New England Patriots. The Panthers would be decimated by injuries, which led them to a 1–7 record after eight games. Despite a late season charge, they finished 7–9, narrowly missing the playoffs.
