The Carolina Panthers and the rest of the NFL now know who they will play to warm up for the 2014 season. The Panthers will play four AFC opponents this August, including a primetime, nationally televised game against the Kansas City Chiefs according to the league’s preseason schedule.
The Panthers will open up the season at home against the Buffalo Bills on the weekend of Aug. 8-10. They will then host the Chiefs at 8 p.m. on Sunday, August 17 on MyFoxCarolinas.
The team will hit the road, first traveling to New England, and closing out against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field the weekend of Aug. 28-30.
The Panthers finished 12-5 last season, capturing the NFC South title and returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
