The 2000 Carolina Panthers season was the sixth season for the team in the National Football League (NFL). They tried to improve upon their 8–8 record in 1999, and make it to the playoffs for the second time in franchise history.

The Panthers would digress from 1999, falling from 8–8 to 7–9, however, the Panthers finished third in the division, behind the playoff-bound St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints.
