By Sharon Thorsland What goes around, comes around. For the Panthers, that means they’re back to Sam Darnold at quarterback as they take on the 3-7 Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Bridgewater signed a three-year, $63 million deal with the Panthers before last season, but renegotiated the final two years of his deal.

The Panthers come off a week to rest and recharge, but unfortunately they're not back to full strength following the bye. Running back Christian McCaffrey has been laid up yet again with another injury. This time his quad, along with several key players are on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Not exactly how you want to start the final quarter of the season. But at least they're facing a team that is having plenty of its own struggles. The Denver Broncos are also 4-8 on the season, although they put up a good fight in a 22-16 loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs Sunday night.
