Bucs vs Panthers Preview

Things got ugly in a hurry for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week in a 38-3 loss — by far the ugliest of the season for the highly-hyped squad that has Super Bowl ambitions. The Bucs would have been shut out if not for a late field goal. However, Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians is not worried about his squad bouncing back.

“I think we have great leadership, and when you have really good leadership, very seldom will you ever lose two in a row,” Arians told reporters on Friday. “We’ve always preached that to our guys. This week of practice has been outstanding — just as if when we won our last ballgame. The one thing I can never complain about is our guys’ work ethic. [Their] attention to detail has been outstanding. I would anticipate them to bounce back pretty good.”

The big loss marred the debut of former All-Pro Antonio Brown, who had been out of football following some erratic behavior and serving a suspension. Brown had three catches for 31 yards in the loss, but didn’t look on the same page as quarterback Tom Brady at times.

“He’s done everything that I’ve asked him to do,” Buccaneers receivers coach Kevin Garver said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “We’re in communication every day. We talk every morning, we talk all throughout the day. We have extra meetings that we do, and he’s done everything that I’ve asked him to do up to this point.”

The Panthers have lost four in a row after winning three straight. However, each of those game have been within a score. Their latest stumble was a 33-31 loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs. The good takeaway was that Carolina had a very productive day offensively, generating 30 first downs and 435 total yards.

“Like I’ve said, every week, it’s going to be a different person making plays for us,” QB Teddy Bridgewater said. “One week, DJ might catch nine passes for 120 yards. The next week, Robby might catch nine passes, Curtis might catch nine passes. So those guys understand each week, a different guy’s going to make plays for us.”

Carolina will be without All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey, who is dealing with a shoulder injury after missing seven games with an ankle sprain.

Tampa Bay is a 6-point favorite for the matchup.
