Can the Carolina Panthers get back to winning ways vs. the Broncos?

We are now formally at the business end of the 2020 season. Although the Carolina Panthers don’t have anything to play for other than pride, head coach Matt Rhule clearly won’t accept a lack of effort down the stretch in pursuit of finishing an eventful campaign on a high note.

Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos is arguably their easiest remaining on the schedule. The Carolina Panthers need to get themselves back to winning ways at Bank of America Stadium, of that there is little doubt. But COVID-19 concerns after the bye week have thrown yet another spanner in the works that could significantly jeopardize their chances.

Carolina had 10 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier in the week after a social gathering between players during their time away from the team put them in the virus’ path.

Simply put, this was as dumb as it gets.

And it is sure to come with a steep fine from the NFL and a dressing down from their head coach.

Having some established individuals unavailable is the last thing Rhule needed and it will be interesting to see just how they get on against a Denver team that has failed to live up to some lofty expectations before competitive action began.

Here is what to expect from the game, best bets, how to watch, and a score prediction in Week 14.
