I think Darnold is a part of it but I think it's the team as a whole. Also, Carolina isn't hated by many fans of most other teams. So I think we are a team that many can kind of root for. We also have so nice stories that are easy to support like Darnold, Rhule and staff plus we have some other exciting young players. I think many were curious to see if we are for real. Carolina is creating a buzz.
Surprising ratings from our game.
The Darnold factor? 😀
Interesting and surprising. Maybe some of the off season attention related to Watson caused more people to watch? NFL starting to recover from the ratings drop?
