2013 NFL Schedule Release: League to announce schedule on Thursday at 8:00 PM EST

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL has announced that they will announce the 2013 league schedule in an announcement on Thursday night, sources have announced.

The NFL, in their desperate need to make every single event a prime time affair, has announced that they will announce the 2013 league schedule on Thursday night at 8:00 PM EST. You can watch the live announcement on NFL Network and/or ESPN, or you can skip it and wait for a recap to magically appear on CSR afterwards.

(Note: we prefer you do the latter.)

Anyway, below are two charts: one lists the Panthers' home opponents, and one lists the Panthers' road opponents.

Home Opponents

Atlanta New York Jets
New Orleans New England
Tampa Bay Seattle
New York Giants St. Louis

Road Opponents

Atlanta Buffalo
New Orleans Miami
Tampa Bay San Francisco
Minnesota Arizona

A few discussion points:

Which game are you looking forward to the most?

Which game scares you the most?

Which game do you think will be the most challenging?

How many prime time games do you think the Panthers will get?

Also, in case you're interested - NFL.com listed the 13 most exciting games for 2013. No, the Panthers aren't mentioned (not even in the "just missed the cut" section), but it still might interest you as a football fan in general.

Using the discussion points as a guide to get the conversation flowing, tell us what you think Panthers fans!
