CHARLOTTE, N.C. (The Charlotte Observer) - The Carolina Panthers will open their 2021 season at home against the New York Jets and finish it on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But the game everyone really wants to know about happens on Nov. 7.

That’s when Cam Newton and the New England Patriots visit the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. It will be the first time former Panthers quarterback has played at Bank of America Stadium since Sept. 12, 2019, when a Lisfranc injury in his foot prematurely ended his season.

It was also the last time we saw Newton in a Panthers jersey; he was released after the season.

The Panthers released their schedule Wednesday night, along with the NFL’s other 31 teams. Teams will play 17 regular-games and three preseason games this year after the NFL owners voted to expand the regular season in March.

Here’s how the Panthers’ schedule looks:
