CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers are headed to prime time, albeit during the pre-season portion of their schedule this summer.
Cam Newton and company will travel to New York on August 26 to take on Tim Tebow and the Jets in a prime time 8 p.m. match up on NewsChannel 36.
Carolina will host the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins in weeks one and two before the late August tilt against the Jets. For the tenth year in a row, the Cats finish up pre-season play in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
The exact dates and times of the four games were not announced.
The Panthers finished the 2011 season at 6-10. The regular season schedule is due out later this month.
