On Monday, Panthers’ head coach Steve Wilks told reporters that P.J. Walker will get the start next week.
Walker is coming off a 37-34 overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons where he completed 19 of his 36 pass attempts for 317 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
This will be Walker’s third consecutive start for the Panthers, as Mayfield hasn’t played since their 37-15 loss in week 5 to the San Francisco 49ers.
In total, Walker has completed 50 of his 80 passes (62.5%) for 614-yards, 3 touchdowns, and one interception.
When Mayfield was with the Browns, Joe Burrow was 0-2 against Mayfield and the Browns in 2020 and lost the one matchup they both played in last season.
The Bengals and Panthers will kick off on Sunday, November 6th at 1:00 pm ET, and the game will air on FOX.
