The Carolina Panthers have won eight straight games after defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a final score of 27-6 on Sunday in Charlotte, N.C.
The Buccaneers took an early lead on a Rian Lindell field goal, but the Panthers regained the lead with a Brandon LaFell touchdown catch in the first quarter and never looked back.
Carolina has the luxury of staying at home another week and will welcome Tampa Bay at Bank of America Stadium at 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday. The teams split their matchups last year, with Carolina winning the first 42-28 at home and Tampa Bay taking the second 24-17.
Last week, the Panthers couldn’t capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. It was a hard-fought contest, but they had to settle for a 27-30 loss against the Rams. A silver lining for the Panthers was the play of Christian McCaffrey, who rushed for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns on 19 carries.
The last time they met, Tampa Bay was the 27-9 winner over San Francisco. Last Sunday? They had no such luck. Tampa Bay took a 17-31 hit to the loss column at the hands of San Francisco.
Both teams will surely be scraping tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Panthers were fourth in rushing yards per game, finishing the 2018 season with 133.5 on average. The Buccaneers displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they ranked first in the NFL in passing yards per game, closing the year with 334.90 on average. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the game.
