When it comes to talent, intangibles, and body of work, Baker Mayfield holds a healthy edge over Sam Darnold.
LANDOVER, Md. — In one of the few starting quarterback battles this NFL preseason, the Carolina Panthers featured Mayfield vs. of redemption with their second professional team.
The “showdown” was more of a sampling, however, as each played sparingly in Carolina’s 23-21 victory. A series of 12 pieces for Baker Mayfield. Six games on two possessions for Sam Darnold. A 3-for-4 success rate on third downs and a field goal for Mayfield. A touchdown on three plays and 19 yards first for Darnold, and a three and one out after that.
