The NFL announced the Carolina Panthers' schedule for the 2012 season.

A Panthers spokesperson said they will have two nationally televised games. The first will be in Charlotte on Thursday, September 20, against defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants on the NFL Network. Their second game is in Philadelphia on ESPN for Monday Night Football on November 26.

The game against the Giants will be the Panthers' first nationally televised event since they played the Dolphins at Bank of America Stadium in 2009. It also happens to be Carolina's first prime-time telecast since playing at Pittsburgh in the 2010 season.

The Panthers have not played a Monday Night game since being at Dallas in Week Three of the 2009 season.

"We had a strong finish last year and hope to maintain that momentum for the 2012 season," says Carolina head coach Ron Rivera. "We play in one of the best divisions in the NFL and play all three division teams plus the New York Giants in the first four games. It's going to be a challenge, but one that excites us."

Carolina closed the 2011 season by winning four of its last six games and jumped 25 positions in total offense, finishing seventh after being last the previous year. Carolina also tied for fifth in scoring last season.
