Carolina Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield warms up for preseason game vs. Commanders

The Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns will be ready for a grudge match the Browns helped facilitate. Cleveland traded former first-round pick and quarterback Baker Mayfield to the Panthers for draft picks. Carolina is hoping Mayfield can help get the franchise pointed in the right direction. Here’s a look at some props to keep in mind for Sunday’s game.

Baker Mayfield Under 220.5 Passing Yards

Carolina and Cleveland both have dynamic running backs in the backfield. The Browns have Nick Chubb, while the Panthers have Christian McCaffrey. 

Considering their talents, it is possible both teams will look to chew up the clock in a game that should be close. Carolina may be looking to ease Baker Mayfield into being its first-time starting quarterback by having a balanced offense.

Mayfield will have a capable top target in D.J. Moore to throw to. However, Mayfield will stay under the total as he becomes comfortable in the offense.

Jacoby Brissett Under 1.5 Touchdown Passes

Brissett, who will be the starting quarterback for the Browns, didn’t throw too many touchdowns passes during the six starts he made with Miami last season. In three of the starts, Brissett didn’t throw any. While Brissett isn’t a bad quarterback, he serves more in a game manager role and doesn’t take many risks.

While that will be a major benefit for Cleveland, Brissett threw four interceptions in 225 pass attempts last season, which could lead to the Browns needing to find paydirt on the ground instead.

Christian McCaffrey Over 45.5 Receiving Yards

Mayfield will be taking a lot in during his first start in Carolina. Not only will Mayfield be trying to navigate through a tough Browns’ defense, but he will also be dealing with the emotions of playing with former teammates. As Mayfield gets acclimated to a new environment, he may need to lean on McCaffrey’s ability to catch passes.

In five of the seven games McCaffrey appeared in during the 2021 season, he caught five or more passes for over 50 receiving yards and averaged nine yards per catch. McCaffrey, however, does have a minor injury going into week one.

He was cut with a teammate's cleat on his shin during practice, but coach Matt Rhule has said he is fine and practiced Thursday.

Nick Chubb Over 73.5 Rushing Yards

Relying on the running game to produce will be more important than ever for the Browns. While there could be some concern Cleveland’s opponents will load up the box to force Brissett to pass, the Browns run game didn’t suffer too much with a clearly-injured Mayfield at quarterback last season. 

Chubb finished second in the league with 1,259 rushing yards and was sixth in the league by averaging five yards per game.

With Chubb being fresh entering the first game of the season, Cleveland should be able to utilize his skills and get his total closer to 100 yards. If the Browns can get a lead, Chubb may be counted on to salt the game away late.
