Short Week Comes At Good Time For Panthers

Panthers Prepare For Bucs On Short Week

Learn from it and move on. That’s what the Panthers plan to do after losing 30-27 to the Rams in the season opener.

With two games in four days, they really don’t have a choice.

The Tampa Bay Bucs come to town for a Thursday Night Football game at Bank of America Stadium.

While coaches and players aren’t usually big fans of Thursday night games and playing on a short week, they say it’s best to do it early in the season, rather than later.

“I think it is, because you’re still relatively fresh coming off of training camp,” Ron Rivera said. “You play your first game and it is a quick turnaround, but I think if you’re going to do it, now is the time to do it.”
