The Carolina Panthers need turnovers to win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Carolina Panthers own a 22-13 series advantage over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after winning both games against their NFC South divisional rival one year ago. The only club within the division that Carolina has a winning record against, the Buccaneers represent a dangerous opponent on Sunday.
Carolina is heavily favored riding a wave of momentum that began two weeks ago with a franchise best, fourth-quarter comeback victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Panthers then handled the league’s No. 1 defense inside Bank of America Stadium and now have a divisional opponent coming into their stadium.
Tampa Bay is enduring a quarterback controversy of sorts after Jameis Winston was injured to start the season and backup Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Buccaneers for two impressive wins. Then a dismal performance at Chicago opened the door for Winston to return, until four interceptions and a Fitzpatrick comeback gave the nod to the former backup for Sunday.
Continue to see how the Panthers can continue their home winning streak in their second NFC South showdown of the season.
