Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has confirmed today that Kyle Allen will start at quarterback in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers. Much has been made of Allen’s 4-0 run this season in relief of Cam Newton. Whether you think that he is the next coming of Tom Brady or a perfectly fine back up, you can’t argue that he has played world beaters to date.
The 49ers are currently 6-0. There are certain supposedly data-driven arguments that might suggest that their 6-0 record makes them a superior team to Kyle Allen and his 4-0 record this season.
