Facing the champions and a trip overseas highlight the Panthers 2024 schedule

Carolina’s three preseason games were also announced with the schedule release. There will be two road games, both in the cooler Northeast: the New England Patriots (preseason Week 1) and at the Buffalo Bills (preseason Week 3). The New York Jets will travel to Charlotte for preseason Week 2.

Of note, there are currently no prime time games (though that is subject to change) and no games played on holidays, with all 17 games scheduled for Sunday afternoons (with five in the 4 o’clock window). The club will also only have two sets of back-to-back road games, in Week 7 (at Washington) and Week 8 (at Denver), then another set to end the season (at Tampa and Atlanta).

The first two months of the schedule offer some opportunities, as they don’t see a team that made the playoffs in 2023 until after the bye. They also have three games in the front half of the schedule against teams with rookie quarterbacks (Williams, Washington’s Jayden Daniels, and Denver’s Bo Nix) and another going through a change at the position (the Raiders with either Gardner Minshew or Aidan O’Connell).

Five of the final seven games are against teams that made the playoffs last season (the Chiefs and Bucs here, at the Eagles, the Cowboys here, and a trip to Tampa).

The Week 18 game against the Falcons will be at a date and time to be determined. Select prime time games are subject to change.
