GREENSBORO, N.C. — Get excited. Football is back! Your favorite team, the Carolina Panthers, kick off week one of the NFL season right here on WFMY News 2.
They play the New York Jets at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Here are some key notes about the matchup:
- The Panthers have a new quarterback - Sam Darnold, and he'll be playing against his old team. The California native started with the Jets in 2018 and was traded to the Panthers in 2021.
- Run, CMC! Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is back after an injury-plagued 2020 season. He's the top-ranked RB in NFL.
- The Jets are reconstructing after going 2-14 in 2020 and drafting second overall in the 2021 Draft.
