Week two of the NFL week kicks off with a big NFC South showdown with both teams really needing a win. In this game the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make the trip to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte to take on the Carolina Panthers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Coming into this season the talk was about how the Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by Bruce Arians were going to be improved because Jameis Winston was going to take the next step forward.
The hope was that Winston would be able to limit his turnovers and that would help him take the step. There is still a lot of season left but if the first game is any indication, he hasn’t improved and it could be a long season with him under center.
In game one he threw for only 195 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. He looked super uncomfortable on the field and they need him to play better in this game.
On the defensive side the 31 points looks like a lot, but two of those were pick-sixes and the defense actually played pretty well.
In this game it’s all going to come down to how well Winston plays. He doesn’t need to be a hero, but he needs to stop turning the ball over.
The Carolina Panthers knew their hands were going to be full in week one against the Los Angeles Rams and it proved to be too much.
They made it interesting late scoring 14 points but it wasn’t enough and that led to them losing by three points. Christian McCaffrey was once again the star of the show, and he is going to be a key all season.
He ran the ball 19 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught 10 passes for 81 yards and is proving to be a mismatch again this year.
On the defensive side the Panthers were not good, giving up 30 points and that is concerning as they go forward. The offense should be good this year and in this game, but if the defense is giving up so many points, it puts a lot of pressure on the offense.
In this game on the defensive side they need to try and force a couple of turnovers. If they can force some of those that will help take some of the pressure off the offense.

The Panthers have higher expecations than the type of play they showed in week one, and in this game I expect they are going to try and prove that early.
