Practices early in the preseason are focused on getting the Panthers prepared for how they’re going to play come the regular season, leaving little time to game-plan for preseason opponents. But the Philadelphia Eagles, who will host the Panthers on Thursday night at 7:30, forced the Panthers to spend some extra time preparing this week. “The hard thing about this game is that you have to prepare for a completely different style of offense. It took a little bit of time away from our preparations for more conventional football,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “On defense, we’ve had to do a little more game-planning than you want to in the preseason. “Offensively, we’ll be facing a 3-4. We obviously see the 4-3 every day in practice, so this might help us because we’ll see a little bit of that from Seattle.”
