Bold predictions for the Carolina Panthers as they go in search of their fourth victory of the 2022 campaign against the Denver Broncos in Week 12.

There isn’t much for the Carolina Panthers to play for other than pride moving forward. But that is something interim head coach Steve Wilks has in abundance and he will be demanding an improved effort from his players in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos.

After mustering just three points at the Baltimore Ravens, it’s not hard to see where the problems lie in Carolina. Ben McAdoo is running out of chances to prove he’s capable of successfully scheming things up offensively and if further complications emerge this weekend, it could lead to yet another coaching change during the bye week.

The Broncos are underachieving when one considers the expectations before the campaign. However, they do possess some dynamic playmakers on offense and their defensive unit remains one of the league’s best despite trading Bradley Chubb to the Miami Dolphins.

Looking ahead to Sunday’s clash, here are four bold predictions for the Panthers as they go in search of their fourth victory in 2022.

Bold Prediction No. 1

Carolina Panthers force three turnovers

Much has been made about Russell Wilson’s performance levels since his high-profile trade from the Seattle Seahawks. The quarterback is finding life tough in unfamiliar surroundings, which is something the ever-improving Carolina Panthers defense can take advantage of this weekend.

Despite losing to the Baltimore Ravens, the defense deserves credit for holding Lamar Jackson largely in check. Something that can give them plenty of confidence when Wilson suits up at Bank of America Stadium.

If the Panthers cause multiple turnovers, it will be another positive step in the right direction. Whether the offense can capitalize is another matter.
