Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers Recap NOV 15TH 2020

Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns and scored on a run and running back Ronald Jones II burst free for a 98-yard touchdown scamper as the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers bounced back for a 46-23 victory against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.

The Buccaneers (7-3), who racked up 544 yards of total offense, swept the season series from Carolina, both times following a loss to the New Orleans Saints by beating the Panthers.

Brady, who was coming off one the worst performances of his 21-year career with three interceptions in last Sunday night's 38-3 home setback to New Orleans, was 28-for-39 for 341 yards.

The Panthers (3-7) lost their fifth consecutive game despite quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's two touchdown passes. He was 18-for-24 for 136 yards and an interception before exiting with a leg or knee injury on a fourth-quarter sack with about five minutes left.

Jones finished with 192 rushing yards on 23 carries, sparking the team's huge second half.

Leading 20-17, the Buccaneers were backed up at their own 2-yard line. Jones burst up the middle and ended up in the end zone at the other end of the stadium.

On the next snap, Jason Pierre-Paul intercepted Bridgewater. That led to Ryan Succop's field goal from 21 yards out for a 29-17 lead.

Tampa Bay went up 32-17 on Succop's fourth field goal of the game, but Trenton Cannon returned the kickoff 98 yards to the Tampa Bay 4. Bridgewater converted on a 3-yard touchdown run with 11:23 remaining, though his two-point conversion pass was incomplete.

The Buccaneers answered with a nine-play 75-yard drive, with Brady scoring on a 1-yard streak. His final TD pass went to Rob Gronkowski for 7 yards.

The teams were tied 17-17 at halftime.

With so much attention on how Brady would respond this week, it was Bridgewater who had a strong start. He completed his first 13 throws, matching a career-best string.

Brady threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans in the back of the end zone as the Buccaneers tied the score with 35 seconds left in the half.

Carolina, playing without injured running back Christian McCaffrey, went up 14-7 on DJ Moore's 24-yard touchdown play on a receiver screen. That drive took just four plays to cover 75 yards.

Succop hit a 23-yard field goal for Tampa Bay before Joey Slye's 46-yarder for the Panthers.

Earlier, the Panthers scored first on Bridgewater's 7-yard pass to Colin Thompson following a Buccaneers turnover. Tampa Bay was even after Brady connected with Cameron Brate, who made a diving 5-yard touchdown catch.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers might need to get their minds right heading into their Week 10 game. For the Carolina Panthers, attention again focuses, in part, on having their bodies in proper condition.

 

The NFC South teams meet Sunday afternoon in Charlotte, N.C., both seeking turnarounds of varying degrees.

 

"For us, win the next one because we're sitting in a pretty good spot," Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said. "It could have been better."

 

That's an understatement after the Buccaneers (6-3) suffered a blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints. The 38-3 result Sunday night marked the most-lopsided loss in a game started by quarterback Tom Brady in his 21 seasons in the NFL.

 

"We're 6-3 and I wish we were a lot better than that," Brady said. "We have to get better, starting with me."

 

By some accounts, the Buccaneers might be rattled by their latest performance.

 

Brady threw three interceptions in a game for the first time since throwing four against Buffalo nine years ago. The arrival of receiver Antonio Brown for his debut with the Buccaneers didn't produce much as he made three catches for 31 yards.

 

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay set an NFL record for fewest rushing attempts in a game with five -- and one of those was a kneel-down to end the game.

 

"Everybody is pissed off. It can't carry over," Arians said. "I don't think our confidence is shaken one bit. You don't bury your head in the sand."

 

The Panthers (3-6), who are trying to shed a four-game losing streak, have concerns after a failed upset bid - a 33-31 loss -- at Kansas City. Running back Christian McCaffrey has landed on the injury report with a shoulder ailment sustained on the game's final drive. Coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that he probably won't play.

 

"You always want all your guys out there," Carolina quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said.

 

McCaffrey compiled 151 yards from scrimmage (82 receiving, 69 rushing) against the Chiefs. His two touchdowns give him 15 multi-touchdown games in his career, including in all three games he has appeared in this season.

 

Before facing the Chiefs, McCaffrey had missed six consecutive games since suffering an ankle injury in the first meeting with Tampa Bay. That was a Week 2 encounter with the Buccaneers claiming a 31-17 home victory.

 

And just like at the beginning of the season, Tampa Bay follows a loss to the Saints with a matchup against Carolina.

 

"The biggest lesson is that we need everybody, week to week. Week to week, we're going to need everybody to be on their 'A' game," Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David said. "We honestly feel that (the Panthers) present a challenge to us, so we've got to be able to get better and be able to play a full four quarters of fundamentally sound, smart football."

 

Until recent weeks, Bridgewater had never lost three consecutive games as a starter -- and now that has grown to four straight.

 

"You're playing well in these games and coming up short," Bridgewater said. "It's frustrating when you don't win those close games."

 

Carolina's past four defeats have come by an average margin of five points.

 

"We've just got to win. We've got to find a way to win," Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson said. "Stop beating ourselves, like I kept saying, just self-inflicted wounds that happens to us."

 

Tampa Bay's offense was hindered against New Orleans without guard Ali Marpet, who was in the team's concussion protocol. He was back in a limited capacity for Wednesday's practice.

 

Carolina might have rookie safety Jeremy Chinn back after he missed action because of a knee injury as he has been on the practice field this week. Safety Juston Burris, who started the first six games, has been activated for a potential return after missing three games with a rib injury.
