Panthers 2014 preseason schedule released

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's an all AFC affair in 2014.

The Carolina Panthers will have one nationally televised game as part of the 2014 preseason schedule. Teams around the league are getting the preparation in and for the Panthers it's an AFC-centric slate.

Week 1: vs. Buffalo Bills (Aug 8-10)

This is a good chance to see how the offensive line can handle a solid pass rush. Mario Williams should have a field day against the line as constructed, but if the Panthers draft a rookie or two it's an opportunity to see how these young players perform.

Week 2: vs. Kansas City Chiefs (Aug 17)

The Chiefs come to town for a nationally televised game that will put the new-look Panthers on show. This will be an excellent barometer on both sides of the ball to test themselves against a deep Kansas City roster.

Week 3: at New England Patriots (Aug 22-24)

If the defense remains strong this should be a great game. It will be interesting to see if new additions to the secondary are able to handle the Patriots passing attack. Starters are of less concern than the depth players, where those third and fourth options will really shine though.

Week 4: at Pittsburgh Steelers (Aug 28-30)

There are plenty of interesting aspects here, but it's hard to deeply analyze a game that's basically a yearly cocktail party. Have fun Jerry!
