Panthers offense explodes against Buccaneers

Panthers Wire Week 9 picks against the spread

Although the Bucs (3-5) have lost four of their last five and are four games behind the Saints and three behind the Panthers in the NFC South, Fitzpatrick remains upbeat that they can turn things around in the second half of the season.

"He's a veteran, and he knows how to bounce back and handle adversity", Humphries said.

Despite the offensive explosion, which saw the Panthers score a season-high 42 points, a late touchdown pass from Newton to Samuel and the Panthers' defense saved the day for Carolina.

Not good enough to win, but encouraging enough the Koetter said the 35-year-old will start again Sunday at home against Washington. "We knew that, I said it before and I say it with so much respect for Tampa, those guys are extremely comfortable with playing [from] behind".

"Their offense runs the same with both guys", Reid said.

Samuel is finally healthy after missing the first three games of this season with a heart issue and most of last season with a broken ankle. But the most hard part of the season is still yet to come.

B Linebackers: The Panthers seem to struggle to contain the middle of the field and a rare missed tackle by Luke Kuechly led to a big Bucs gain. He can stand flat-footed and put that thing on a line.

Newton said that when they got the ball back only up a score after being up 28, there was no panic from his team.

While Reid was smiling when Ron Rivera awarded him with the game ball, Reid told ESPN Radio after the game that he won't truly be happy until Colin Kaepernick is back in the NFL.

Defensive end Julius Peppers helped Bradberry out, too. With eight of the team's 16 sacks through seven games, he's almost halfway to the career-best 16 he had for the New York Giants when he was an All-Pro in 2011.

"If they don't focus, they'll let an opportunity like we had slip away", Newton said.

"We were very effective except for probably the end of the third quarter, into the fourth quarter. This guy is on a mission and it's been handsome to see and be around". With Torrey Smith out with a knee injury last week against Baltimore, Moore took advantage of his increased playing time and led the Panthers with 90 yards receiving and added 39 yards rushing on two carries.
