Panthers QB Cam Newton to make preseason debut Thursday against Patriots

The Carolina Panthers will get their first glimpse of quarterback Cam Newton in a game situation since his shoulder surgery. Newton will appear in the team’s third preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to head coach Ron Rivera. This is more notable than a lot of preseason debuts for veteran players. Newton underwent arthroscopic surgery on his ailing throwing shoulder during the offseason. That shoulder rendered his deep balls fairly useless toward the tail...

This rookie running back has a chance to steal Cameron Artis-Payne’s job as the first guy to not sub in for Christian McCaffrey in 2019.

We’re 20 days away from the Carolina Panthers 2019 season opener, so that means today’s countdown piece is devoted to No. 20 on the roster — running back Jordan Scarlett.

Welp, it’s not like Carolina was going anywhere without Cam Newton

Finally, a preseason game that told us something we already knew.

For those of you who suffered through all four quarters of the Carolina Panthers boringly disappointing 27-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills, you got a sneak preview of what this team is going to look like if Cam Newton has to miss any significant time this year. Kyle Allen and Will Grier, the top contenders to back up Newton this year, completed 14 of their 30 combined passing attempts for...

Top 10 Mick Mixon moments from the Panthers Week 2 preseason game

The Panthers quirky play-by-play voice was already in mid-season form.

The Carolina Panthers preseason game against the Buffalo Bills was brutally boring to watch. The two most consistent offensive plays were Will Greer overthrows and holding penalties. The defense focused on having third-string linebackers try, and fail, to cover slot receivers. The Panthers backup kicker, Joey Slye, was the team’s MVP. The only drama for those of us watching the...

Panthers 2019 season opener countdown: 22 days to go

Let’s discuss the prospects of a Pro Bowl season in 2019 for running back Christian McCaffrey.

After Christian McCaffrey’s break out season in 2019 is there anyone left who doesn’t think he was worth the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 draft? If so then I have nothing for you. Wait...yes I do. McCaffrey could easily improve on his 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns combined rushing and receiving. He could actually improve on it a lot.

Hey you don’t have to believe me if you don’t want...

Eric Reid: Jay-Z's comments on being past kneeling are 'asinine'

Eric Reid continues to stand in opposition of Jay-Z. Reid spoke with reporter Ashley Holder after the Carolina Panthers’ preseason game on Friday against the Buffalo Bills. Holder asked Reid a series of questions regarding his stance on Jay-Z’s partnership with the NFL, which was announced on Tuesday. Jay-Z has partnered with the NFL to “nurture and strengthen community through football and music, including through the NFL’s Inspire Change initiative.” The initiative was created in...

3 winners, 4 losers from the Panthers’ 27-14 loss to the Bills

This was not a good game for the Panthers. Thankfully it doesn’t count.

Well, that happened. The Carolina Panthers played a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills tonight, and the Bills were clearly the more prepared team as the Panthers couldn’t seem to do anything right for the entire game. That was made evident by the final result as the Bills are leaving Charlotte with a 27-14 win that quite honestly could have been a lot worse.

This game was...

Panthers struggle to play football in 27-14 loss to Bills

The Panthers looked sloppy in a 27-14 loss in their preseason home opener.

The best thing that we can say about this game is that it does not count. To put it briefly, the Panthers played like poop tonight and the Bills didn’t. That’s why the Bills are leaving Charlotte with a 27-14 win. On the bright side, this is a preseason game and the results of said game don’t mean anything. It was essentially a glorified practice with another team, and for...

The Carolina Panthers will face off against the Buffalo Bills tonight in their second preseason game, and the first game of 2019 at Bank of America Stadium in the Queen City.

Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly once again held out of preseason game

The Carolina Panthers are not taking any risks with superstars Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly, both of whom will not play Friday night against the Buffalo Bills. As noted by Steve Reed of the Associated Press, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said on Wednesday that both of them would play. However, the decision was not made due to injuries but rather was made out of caution. This marks the second week in a row that Rivera told reporters that Newton would play, only to change his mind about it as...

Over the course of this past offseason the Carolina Panthers have made a number of moves to provide answers to some of their biggest questions. They have adequately replaced four key starters in center Ryan Kalil, linebacker Thomas Davis, wide receiver Devin Funchess and defensive end Julius Peppers. They have improved the depth at key positions such as wide receiver, offensive tackle...

Chris Manhertz highlights a few Panthers to watch during the Panthers second preseason game.

The Panthers will likely roll out a few more starters this week against the Bills, however the meat and potatoes of this preseason game will likely be the backups once again. The second and third stringers are the guys worth monitoring, and here’s a few to keep an eye on.
