Bucs force overtime in Charlotte

If Ron Rivera is ever faced with a fourth-and-1 again, he’s going for it.

Maybe.

In a game reminiscent of a regulation loss at Atlanta, the Panthers allowed the Buccaneers to drive for a game-tying score while trying to hang onto a lead.

After punting it away with a 21-13 lead, the Panthers allowed the Buccaneers to drive 80 yards in 50 seconds, and they’re going to extra football. Vincent Jackson caught both the touchdown and the two-point conversion, setting up the most-Panther-like result of a ridiculous season.

    I love how this article says the Panthers “allowed” the Bucs to drive for the tying scores, ass opposed to giving the Bucs credit for making plays and taking those points. Keep hating on Tampa, PFT

    letting them as in giving them the ball rather than going for it on fourth and one. Getting a first down would have ended the game but they punted giving the bucs another chance.
