CHARLOTTE â€” The Carolina Panthers kicked off a much anticipated year of football Saturday, but that didnâ€™t stop the Houston Texans from stealing the show.
Tied 13-13 at halftime, the Texans scored 13 unanswered second-half points on their way to a 26-13 preseason victory over the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium.
CHARLOTTE â€” The Panthers reached a five-year contract extension with running back Jonathan Stewart on Saturday.
Panthers general manager Marty Hurney says the team is "thrilled" to keep Stewart around to work with fellow running back DeAngelo Williams, who received a five-year contract last year, and new fullback Mike Tolbert.
The new deal keeps Stewart a Panther through 2017.
