This is the big one, folks.
The Carolina Panthers (9-3) will ride their riverboat into the bayou to square off with the New Orleans Saints (9-3) for first place in the NFC South in Week 14 of the 2013 season at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA on Sunday, December 8 at 8:30 p.m. EST.
Below you will find all the information you need to be able to watch the game live, stream it online, listen to it on the radio or catch a replay of it at a later date. Whatever your personal needs are for this game, we've got you covered (other than buying you a ticket, of course).
The game will be broadcast on NBC after the NFL flexed it out of its original 1 p.m. time slot on FOX, marking the third time this season the Panthers will play in front of a national audience. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will handle the play-by-play duties, and Michele Tafoya will be the on-field reporter.
Because the game is part of NBC's Sunday Night Football broadcast, you can stream the game online if you don't have a tv or would just prefer to watch the game on your computer. All the information you need for streaming the game can be found here.
If you're interested in streaming the games online you can sign up for NFL Game Rewind. For just $29.99 you can get access to every Panthers regular season game from NFL.com. All you have to do is click this link to sign up. (Important note: You cannot watch the games live. Sunday afternoon games aren't streamed online until after the Sunday night game has completed, and Monday night games are not streamed online until 24 hours after the game is over. However, it's not a terrible deal if you can't get NFL Sunday Ticket, don't have a local bar you can hang out at on Sundays and don't mind waiting until the games are over to watch them.)
You can listen to the live radio feed on 1110 AM WBT if you're in the local broadcast area and can tolerate Mick Mixon and Eugene Robinson.
You can also listen to the game on Sirius/XM radio by tuning in to channel 93 for the Panthers broadcast or channel 92 for the Saints broadcast. (Note: you can also tune into Sirius/XM online channel 804 for Panthers coverage and channel 819 for Saints coverage.)
Because this game is on national television, you can also listen to the national feed by tuning in to channel 94 or listen online on channel 960.
Each week, NFL Network shows a 90-minute condensed version of the four best games of the weekend. There's no guarantee the Panthers vs. Saints game will be included, but generally the replays are shown on Tuesday and Wednesday. You can check NFL Network's tv schedule for more information after the game is over.
Weather will not be a factor in this game because the Saints play in a dome, but if you're going to the game and are planning to tailgate you should seriously consider bringing an umbrella with you. The current forecast calls for a low of 60° and a high of 71° with 9 mph SE winds, but the chance of precipitation is currently 80%. For more info on the weather forecast, click here.
