Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

As stated previously, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have easily disposed of the Carolina Panthers since he move from the New England Patriots. Results haven’t been particularly close, either.

Whether the Panthers can muster enough for this to change in 2022 remains to be seen. The wheels must fall off Brady at some stage, but nothing from the signal-caller’s production last season suggests he’ll fall off a cliff next time around.

Tampa Bay is also likely to be fighting for playoff seeding with two games remaining. If the Panthers have nine wins by this stage, then there will be a lot on the line at Raymond James Stadium.

This is the time of year when Brady excels. The postseason face goes on and this translates across the roster, which represents a significant challenge for a Carolina team that hasn’t had much experience of meaningful football in December.

Prediction: Loss (9-7)

It might be a step too far for the Panthers to break this unwanted streak. The Bucs won’t want to lose momentum heading into the playoffs, so expect them to get one over on Carolina once again.
