Panthers open 2013 regular season with Seahawks

by Steve Behr Sports Editor

CHARLOTTE -- The Carolina Panthers will open the 2013 regular season at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Panthers, who went 7-9 and finished in a tie for second with New Orleans and Tampa Bay last season, lost to the Seahawks 16-12 at Bank of America Stadium in 2012. The game this fall is at 1 p.m. on Sept. 8. It is the first time since 2009 that the Panthers open a regular season at home.

It's also the second time that former North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson will play in Charlotte. Wilson completed 19-of 25 passes for 221 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions against the Panthers last season.

The Panthers play the AFC East teams during the season. They'll host the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football on Nov. 18. That game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Carolina also gets to take a bite out of the Big Apple two times this season, but both games will be in Charlotte. The Panthers host the New York Giants on Sept. 22 and also hosts the New York Jets on Dec. 15.

Carolina visits the other team from the state of New York, the Buffalo Bills, on Sept. 15.

Appalachian State football fans will get to see former Mountaineers receiver Brian Quick when the St. Louis Rams visit Charlotte on Oct. 20.

Another former Appalachian State player, safety DeAndre Pressley, welcomes the Panthers to Miami to face the Dolphins on Nov. 24. Former ASU tackle Daniel Kilgore's San Francisco 49ers host the Panthers on Nov. 10.

The Panthers also host NFC South rivals Atlanta Falcons on Nov. 3, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 1 and the New Orleans Saints, home of former ASU running back Travaris Cadet, on Dec. 22.

In the preseason, the Panthers host the Chicago Bears on Aug. 9 and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 29. The Panthers also play a preseason game at Super Bowl champion Baltimore on Aug. 22.

Carolina's bye week is the fourth week of the season on Sept. 29.
