Indianapolis Colts vs Carolina Panthers: Storylines

The Colts will give Sam Ehlinger and Jacob Eason a chance to show off their talents. These two are the future quarterbacks of the Colts, they are experienced players from college football but with a lot to show ahead. The team wants to avoid last season's failure by looking back on the wild card loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Sam Darnold will not play this 2021 NFL Preseason game for the Carolina Panthers. The team hopes this season with Darnold will be better. In 2020, the Panthers had a negative record with 5 wins and 11 losses. It was one of the most disappointing years of the franchise.

A curious fact about these teams is that they will start the regular season with new quarterbacks. It's a risky bet to start a season with someone who is just learning the playbook and doesn't have a full connection to defense and offense.
