Here are three key questions the Panthers must answer on Sunday.
There is no denying that the Carolina Panthers have some work to do. After losing three straight games, they will look to get back on track against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. In a rather cruel twist of irony, the Buccaneers were the team the Panthers last beat. Tampa Bay meanwhile sits at the bottom of the NFC South. With a win over the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday, they have momentum heading into this contest.
It’s the classic case of a trap game. Carolina needs to win this one in order to stay in playoff contention. Tampa Bay meanwhile has nothing to lose and bragging rights to gain. With a Carolina Panthers team that is currently licking its wounds, this would be the perfect time for the Buccaneers to secure a victory. Carolina meanwhile is hungry for said victory in order to prove that this season is not going to be a waste. A loss on Sunday would mean that they are pretty much out of the playoff hunt.
Without further ado we take a look at three key matchups for the Panthers when they face the Buccaneers on Sunday.
