CHARLOTTE,N.C. (WTVD) -- The Carolina Panthers have unveiled the 2023 regular-season schedule with home and away dates and will jump right into divisional play under new head coach Frank Reich.

The Panthers begin the season on the road at the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 10, then host the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 on Monday Night Football.

It's back on the road in Week 3 with a visit to the Seattle Seahawks. They played at Seattle last year and won 30-24.

The Panthers then begin a tough three-game stretch with an Oct. 1 home date against the Minnesota Vikings before going to Detroit on Oct. 8 and Miami on Oct. 15.

Carolina has a bye in Week 7.

It could be a battle of the top two picks of the NFL Draft in Week 8 as C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans come to Charlotte on Oct. 29 to face Bryce Young and the Panthers.

Then the Indianapolis Colts, the team that fired Reich last season, come to town Nov. 5.

Week 10 sees the Panthers travel to Chicago to meet the Bears. That will be on Thursday Night Football on Nov. 9.
