CHARLOTTE — Dates and times for the Carolina Panthers’ preseason contests have been set, and they’ll make their lone preseason appearance at Bank of America Stadium on Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. against the Bills, in the third preseason game.

The Panthers will open the preseason at Washington on Saturday, Aug. 13 p.m., in a 1 p.m. start, the team announced in a news release.

They’ll then play the Patriots on Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. Prior to that game, they will have a couple of days of joint practices with New England, getting some off-site work.

The Panthers will open the 2022 regular season at home on Sept. 11 against the Cleveland Browns at the Bank of America Stadium, the team said in a news release.

The Panthers are 4-2 against the Browns all-time, and 2-0 in games played here. They last played the Browns here in 2014, a 17-13 win. The Browns won the last meeting between the teams, a 2018 game in front of the Dawg Pound in Cleveland.

This marks the fifth-straight year that Carolina has opened the season at home. They’ve gone 7-3 in the last 10 home openers.
