Panthers, Bucs now playing a wild one

From slow to wild in a few plays.

The Panthers and Buccaneers are playing a good one in Charlotte. They’re tied at 14 in the third quarter after Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston threw a touchdown pass to Mike Evans and then hit Adam Humphries on a two-point conversion pass to tie the game.

Cameron Artis-Payne has two third-quarter touchdown runs for the Panthers, who trailed 6-0 at halftime. There were no touchdowns for the game’s first 35-plus minutes, and there have been three since.

Evans was wide open on his 26-yard touchdown catch. The Bucs needed it, badly, after falling behind and after failing to score a touchdown in the first half.

    This is why ratings are down.

    Winston is horrible.

    Miss-a-ton almost threw a pick there! And look, 2nd Round Kick Guy missed another field goal! Also, who thought hiring Dirk Koetter was a good idea? Feels like Tomsula part 2, where he backstabbed Lovie Smith, who was admittedly not a great coach, but they were better last year than this year!

    Why am I watching this game?

    Is the NFL intentionally trying to alienate their viewers by continuing to put on games between awful teams on these nationally televised games? This game has been ugly. Or, as Charles Barkley would say, turrible.

    I have an even better question. Why am I even watching this game?!

    Welp, Aguayo(sp?) shanked yet another FG. Hate to down on someone when I, too, am experiencing hardship, but it seems he’s just not ready for the big time. IMO, unless a kicker is MONEY from 70ish yds he ain’t worth a 5th rd pick, much less a 2nd. If he can develop a thick skin, he’ll be good someday, just not in TB. Best of luck

    Oh boy, can’t wait for Aguayo to miss it again! I feel bad for Buc fans.

    Welcome to 1-4 Carolina,one year wonder.

    Winston is the new Josh Freeman.

    And everybody got in their feelings when I hated on the Bucs for trading back into the second round for a rookie kicker…..

  12. bucsorbust says: Oct 10, 2016 11:34 PM

    How about that? Play calling and poor kicking lost the game….and then won the game.

  13. bcetour says: Oct 10, 2016 11:38 PM

    As a die hard Buc fan, on behalf of the NFL, Panthers and Bucs, I would like to formally apologize to NFL nation for having to witness two hot, flammable garbage teams hijack national television.

    Good lord.

    Hey LAPanther86 how you feelin bud? You have one more win than the Factory of Sadness.

    So…. you say getting rid of all your cb’s will keep you competitive???

    Welcome to 1-4 Carolina,one year wonder.

    Yo dude, three straight division titles are a one year wonder huh? I don’t care who your team is cause you can’t do basic math. By the way, Get off your butt and check some stats, NFC south is terrible against out of division and conference opponents. So, shut up fanboy!

    Keep Pounding

    Both teams are terrible outside of Greg Olsen.

    The head coach of the worst team in the NFCS must get one heck of a prize. I’ve never seen two coaches battling so hard to perform worse than the other in my life. Honestly, that was hard to watch. Both of these guys tried their best to lose this game, it’s a shame one of them had to win.

    It’s ok. The Saints will be back in the cellar next week when the Panthers beat them. Enjoy third place temporarily Saints fans.

    I remember when Monday Night Football used to be a must watch game regardless if my team was playing or not. MNF has sadly become just another Thursday night game except on a Monday. It doesn’t have to do with just tonight’s game, but MNF just sucks from top to bottom.

    3 straight div titles in a crap division – hardly impressive.

    Congrats on being the tallest midget.

    Ratings are down because average joe is tired of watching 20-something millionaires complain about being oppressed.
    The product on the field just takes the sting out of it.
