Texans HC heaps praise on a stunning display of C.J. Stroud’s skills 22-17 in win, Bryce Young and Will Levis lose close contests…

In Week 13 of the NFL, two rookie quarterbacks faced challenges, while one continued to demonstrate excellence. Bryce Young of the Carolina Panthers encountered a tough match against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, resulting in a 21-18 loss.

Despite a valiant effort, Young’s stat line reflected 15 completions on 31 attempts, 178 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and an 18.8 QBR. The game marked the Panthers’ continued struggle on the road, remaining winless away from home.

Throughout the season, Young has faced significant pressure, accumulating 44 sacks, the fourth-highest for a player in their first 11 career games since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, as reported by ESPN Stats & Information. Despite a slow start with only three points in the first half, Young led a third-quarter drive culminating in a touchdown by Chuba Hubbard, briefly putting the Panthers ahead by three points.

n the final quarter, Young orchestrated a successful 2-point conversion after Hubbard’s second touchdown. However, with an opportunity to secure victory, Young’s interception with 2:21 remaining sealed the Panthers’ fifth consecutive loss, extinguishing their playoff hopes.

Looking ahead, Young and the Panthers aim to secure their first away win as they face the New Orleans Saints in the upcoming Sunday matchup. Meanwhile, C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans secured a crucial victory over the Denver Broncos, further solidifying Stroud’s case for NFL Rookie of the Year.
