Panthers 2014 schedule released, includes multiple primetime games

krak

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Coming off a 12-4 season and an NFC South division championship, the Panthers will host two primetime games for the first time since 1997 and are slated to appear in each of the NFL’s three primetime slots.

The Panthers kick off the season Sept. 7 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Panthers open their home schedule Sept. 14 against the Lions. The Panthers will then host the Steelers at Bank of America Stadium for Sunday Night Football on NBC.

The Panthers could end up making more than three primetime appearances with the NFL extending flexible scheduling in 2014. Typically reserved for Weeks 11-17, flex scheduling can begin as early as Week 5 this season, though it can’t be applied more than two times through week 10.

Flex scheduling allows Sunday afternoon games to be moved to Sunday night.

“Once again we knew it was going to be a challenging schedule regardless of the order of the games,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “It is important that we be ready because we are playing two teams with new head coaches to start the season, and preparing for the uncertainties of a new staff can be difficult.”
