This coming Friday evening starting at 7:30pm, the Panthers will take the field against the New England Patriots for their first home pre-season game.

Considering we’re the reigning NFC champions and have one of the best defensive fronts in football, as well as last year’s MVP for a quarterback, I’m pretty confident the Patriots are going down.
