We have reached 13 of the NFL season and in this game it’s a huge NFC South showdown. The Carolina Panthers make the trip to Raymond James Stadium to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Panthers have won the last three games played between the two teams.
The Carolina Panthers got out to a fast start to the season, but are now really struggling having lost three games in a row and each of the last two games they really had a chance to win.
Two games ago they went for two instead of kicking the field goal in the last seconds of the game and that led to a loss.
Against the Seahawks in their last game a missed field goal with under two minutes left the game tied, and they drove down the field to upset the Panthers.
It really hasn’t been one thing or another that went wrong, they just couldn’t close out games and now they are in a fight to keep their playoff spot.
The Panthers were supposed to have a good defense coming into the season but in a few games they have really let him down.
They are giving up 25.6 points per game and they are going to need to have their hands full in this game. If the defense struggles in this game they could lose this game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have had a terrible season but come into this game off a big win.
They took on a bad San Francisco 49ers team and the defense stepped up in a big way giving up only nine points and that led to a victory.
Jameis Winston had his best start of the year throwing for 312 yards and two touchdowns. It was enough to get him at least one more start.
In this game the Buccaneers need that same defense that showed up against the 49ers against the Panthers. The Buccaneers have a good offense, but I am not sure a shootout is what they want in this game.
If they can get out to a fast start, and frustrate Cam Newton early, they will have a good chance to pull the big upset.
