The Panthers used to have a decent defense.
But during their three-game losing streak, that has largely not been the case.
They’re still playing bad in a must-win game, as the Buccaneers took the opening kickoff and drove for an impressive touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
It was a nice start for a team that has alternated between exciting and awful this year. Really, that’s both of them, as the Panthers are on the verge of squandering a very good offense of their own, and Cam Newton just threw an interception to keep them in an early hole.
