P.J. Walker‘s performances over the last fortnight have been encouraging enough for interim head coach Steve Wilks to give him the starting job again in Week 9 at the Cincinnati Bengals. The quarterback responded from a disappointing first half at the Atlanta Falcons to almost spearhead an unlikely victory, with his sensational deep touchdown to D.J. Moore sparking emotional scenes and providing fans with one of the most exciting moments in franchise regular-season history.
This was another significant step in the right direction for Walker, whose underdog story is also gaining national recognition. Keeping this consistent is the biggest challenge facing the one-time XFL MVP candidate, but confidence is high heading into a tough road fixture.
Cincinnati has a decent defense and can cause havoc when in the mood. Walker must have his wits about him from start to finish, be efficient with the football, and lean heavily on the running game despite the absence of Chuba Hubbard for a second-straight week.
The Carolina Panthers offensive line must also perform as expected. If all these key elements fall into place, then Wilks’ men can be competitive against the defending AFC champions.
It could be a game for the defenses to shine. Expecting another 300-yard game from Walker might be pushing things, so betting the under 194.5 passing yards at -110 (bet $110 to win $100) with FanDuel Sportsbook could be a nice wager all things considered.
