On Wednesday night, violent riots broke out in downtown Charlotte following a protest in response to the murder of Keith Lamont Scott, who was fatally shot by a police officer on Tuesday.
The riots spread throughout much of the city, eventually making its way to the Carolina Panthers' team store at Bank of America Stadium, located in on the edge of downtown Charlotte and I-277.
With North Carolina governor Pat McCrory issuing a state of emergency, there was concern that the violence could force the NFL to relocate the Panthers' Sunday afternoon home game against the Vikings.
On Thursday morning, the NFL released a statement expressing hope in being able to have the game in Charlotte on Sunday.

Depending on what takes palce on Thursday and Friday, the game could conceivably still be relocated.
If the game is to be moved, FedEx Field could be one of the locations to host the game, according to ESPN's David Newton.
"While the Panthers are not thinking of moving Sunday's game against Minnesota today, that could change if more violence erupts in Charlotte over the next couple of days. The NFL would not move the game to a college stadium, so options could be Atlanta and Washington. Both organizations are on the road this weekend."
With the Redskins going to New York on Sunday to face the Giants, FedEx Field would be available, but one potential issue could arise.
The Redskins' home stadium will be in use on Saturday as West Virginia and BYU square off in a marque non-conference college football game.
While professional stadiums do host events on back-to-back days, it may not be likely that the Redskins' organization would be willing to risk further field damage for teams not named the Redskins.
While it is still a possibillity, the organization has not been contacted yet.
