Panthers vs Bills : The Panthers open the preseason on Thursday against the Buffalo Bills. While the starters will see limited action, it’s still a good opportunity to see Panthers football. We can’t really complain about that, can we?
We can expect most of the starters to see at least a series or two of action, with the backups handling things the rest of the way. Look for the rookies to get a lot of playing time, notably wide receiver D.J. Moore, as the coaches continue to evaluate how they best fit in the game plan.
Here’s all the info you need to keep up with the action as it unfolds.
