Panthers hold on to top Tampa, 42-28

Panthers hold on to top Tampa, 42-28”

After outgaining the Bucs 264-75, the #1 passing offense in the league all of a sudden found it's footing and roared back from 28 down to cut the Panthers lead to 35-28 - touchdowns on three of four drives made it a one-score game as the Panthers offense struggled to find the juice that made it so effective in the first half. Yet again, Tampa Bay gives up a huge lead in the first half before mounting a heroic but ultimately futile comeback attempt in the second, losing a lopsided game to the Carolina Panthers. "We've got to play better football, more consistent football".

Starter Jameis Winston missed the first three games of the season due to a suspension and in his absence, Ryan Fitzpatrick was lighting it up. "And we've got D-Jack, Chris, O.J. and Cam".

Tight end Greg Olsen, who has been with the team since 2011, said the Panthers have never had this many offensive players that can tear off big gains with the ball in their hands.

Fitzpatrick rallied the Buccaneers from a 35-7 deficit, completing 24 of 40 passes for 243 yards and four touchdowns to make it 35-28 and a one-score game in the fourth quarter.

While Reid was smiling when Ron Rivera awarded him with the game ball, Reid told ESPN Radio after the game that he won't truly be happy until Colin Kaepernick is back in the NFL. It's not on the coaches.

However, Koetter said he doesn't see anything wrong with Newton's arm strength.

Carolina faces a tough test this week, as they're on the road to play the Steelers, who are ranked No. 6.

"We actually did start fast on defense", Koetter said Monday.

The eighth-year pro had logged multiple sacks in seven of his 102 career games before Sunday but brought down Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick twice in a three-play span in the second quarter, and strip-sacked Fitzpatrick in the third. "On those five straight drives where they scored, on three of those drives we put them in disgusting field position with an interception, two sacks, a punt return and a fake punt". Together Samuel and Moore have run 10 times for 159 yards with two touchdowns on reverses or double reverses. "I don't know if there's a lot of teams that would have come back with a fight...."

A Special teams: This group is usually consistent, and today was no different.
