Sam Darnold to start for Panthers in Week 14

Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold will start Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks, interim coach Steve Wilks confirmed Monday.

What It Means:

The Panthers are sticking with Darnold as their starter after the bye week. He completed 11-of-19 passes for 164 yards with no turnovers and a touchdown in his Week 12 season debut, and he also punched one in at the goal-line. D.J. Moore was the team's leading receiver with 4 catches on 6 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown. P.J. Walker will take over as the backup after Baker Mayfield was released Monday.

numberFire's models project Darnold for 202.4 passing yards, 1.11 touchdowns, and 0.8 interceptions in Week 14. He should have a plus draw versus a Seahawks team that, entering Week 13, had the No. 26 pass defense in our adjusted efficiency metrics.
