On the heels of P.J. Walker's career passing day, Carolina Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks was quick to make his decision on the team's quarterback plans for Week 9.

Wilks revealed on Monday that Walker will start "once again" against the Cincinnati Bengals. This will be Walker's third consecutive starting nod and the fifth of his NFL career.

Walker's furious efforts did not result in a Panthers victory on Sunday, but he posted a career-high 317 passing yards in addition to 1 TD and 1 INT. Walker took over for an injured Baker Mayfield in Week 6.

Mayfield technically returned from his injury in Week 8, but Wilks opted for some consistency under center. The Panthers are 1-2 under their new gunslinger, but averaged 21.6 points per game over the last three weeks, an uptick from their 18.6 points per game in Weeks 1-5.
