Panthers vs Bengals Highlights
The Panthers finished 5-12 last season after a gamble on former Jets first-round pick Sam Darnold failed to pay off. Darnold remains in Carolina but has been joined by fellow first-rounder Baker Mayfield. Mayfield will start and will strive to get one over his former division rivals, the Bengals in hopes that the Oklahoma QB will find some chemistry with WR Robbie Anderson and reignite both of their careers after disappointing seasons in 2021. The addition of new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo should help matters.
After so many years of mediocre quarterback play, the Bengals will feel that they finally have their star quarterback in Jamarr Chase. Their run to the brink of Super Bowl glory came as a surprise to most, but this season there will be no surprise if they are again one of the teams to beat. Will they be able to take care of business at home against Carolina?
The Panthers lead the head-to-head record 3-2-1, with only 6 games between these two teams since Carolina entered the league in 1995. The Panthers won the last contest in 2018 (31-21) when Christian McCaffrey ran for 184 yards. Can the RB star do it again this week?
Which way should you go if you want to bet on NFL games? While the Panthers have some stars on offense, it’s likely that the Bengals will win this one at home and keep the momentum. Be sure to check out the NFL injury report along with the pertaining NFL schedule before anything else happens!
