The Panthers have been the most surprising team thus far through the first 3 weeks.
They’ll hit the road for a Week 4 battle with rookie Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Carolina comes in off a 27-22 win over the Drew Breesless Saints last week.
As for the Buccaneers, they just couldn’t get anything going as they fell to the Texans 19-9.
The last time the Panthers started the season 3-0 was back in 2003. What happened that year? They just went on to win the Superbowl.
QB Cam Newton has this Panthers team clicking on all cylinders as they look to start 4-0 with a big road test here in Week 4.
Newton once again had another stand out performance and literally put the team on his back. He finished with 20 of 31 passing for 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the win.
Newtown had a signature moment in the 4th quarter as he ran in from 14 yards out on a bootleg play.
There were many questions as to who Newton would be targeting this year with such a thin and injured receiving corp for the Panthers. Those questions have been answered as TE Greg Olson continues to be the go to guy for Newton.
Olson finished with 134 yards on 8 receptions and caught a pair of touchdowns in the win.
The Bucs knew things weren’t going to be that stable and consistent with a rookie QB calling the shots.
They suffered a major setback in their 19-9 loss last week to the Houston Texans. Tampa Bay had plenty of chances, but stalled drives and poor special teams led to the loss.
K Kyle Brindza missed three field goals and an extra point as they essentially left 10 points on the field, which clearly costed them at least a tie.
QB Jameis Winston also struggled a lot in the loss to Houston as he finished with just 17 completions out of 36 attempts. He finished with a passer rating of only 69.3.
Tampa Bay will also need to look for some sort of running game to take a little pressure of Winston. They rushed for only 57 yards on 20 team carries in Sunday’s loss.
