Panthers pipe in noise, to prepare for loud home crowd

It’s not uncommon for the Carolina Panthers to practice with piped-in crowd noise before going on the road to play a dome team or in loud opposing stadiums. But the Panthers practiced with nose blaring from a pair of speakers Friday for their defensive drills, anticipating the BoA crowd will be loud when the San Francisco 49ers have the ball.

The teams meet Sunday at 1:05 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium in an NFC playoff game.

“We were playing a little bit of just loud noise,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “I got a headache from it.”
