CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Thursday Night Football means more than just a nationally televised, primetime game for the Carolina Panthers.

It also signals the return of the NBC Sports bus to Charlotte.

The bus gives football fans a behind-the-scenes look at NBC Sports’ production of NFL games, as well as an experience unlike any other. Decorated with gear from both teams competing in the game, the bus is open for fans to take tours and join the fun as they get ready for the big game.

Thursday's game will be broadcast live on NBC Charlotte, starting with a special Panthers football special at 7 p.m.!
