Patriots vs Panthers : The New England Patriots will host the Carolina Panthers for their third preseason matchup. The New England Patriots’ 2019 preseason hits game No. 3, which is typically considered the dress rehearsal for NFL teams.
With that in mind, will we actually get a chance to see Tom Brady and the starters play against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers? We’ll find out as we get closer to kickoff.
Patriots preseason TV broadcasts (and free live stream) are usually limited to local TV affiliates and typically have confusing live stream rights, which can make it tricky to track down the game.
Thursday night’s exhibition marks the first home home action for the Patriots this preseason as the team sticks to Gillette Stadium for the next three weeks. Here’s all the info you need to catch the game.
In theory, Thursday night’s preseason battle between the Patriots and Panthers at Gillette Stadium is the so-called “dress rehearsal” for the regular season.
Still, if there is a game that’s worth watching it’s this one. It comes almost a month into training camp and with two prior contests in the books. But it’s still two-plus weeks away from true game action in the regular season opener between New England and Pittsburgh in Foxborough.
If ever you’re going to see high-end, competitive, game-like August action it should come tonight against Carolina.

Snap to it, Tom – While there is no guarantee at this point, the Foxborough faithful should get to see Tom Brady under center on Thursday night. Brady, who’s yet to see game action after extensive work in joint practices to this point, has played in the third preseason game in all but two years of his two-decade career. Any time TB12 takes the field he’s the center of attention. It’s also worth watching how he interacts and connects with his various targets at tight end and wide receiver, many of whom are new or young options.
