Sunday November 9, 2003 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24 Carolina Panthers 27

THe Panthers broke out to a 20–7 lead through three quarters. Brad Johnson led the Buccaneers on a rally, scoring two touchdown passes of 23 yards and 36 yards. One each to Keyshawn Johnson and Keenan McCardell, and Tampa Bay took a 21–20 lead with 4:52 remaining.

Two plays later, Tim Wansley intercepted Jake Delhomme for the second time in the game. The turnover led to a Martin Gramatica field goal, and a Tampa Bay lead of 24–20 with 2:45 to go. The Buccaneer defense, however, failed to keep Carolina at bay, and Delhomme swiftly led the Panthers to a game-winning touchdown with 1:11 left.

Early in the fourth quarter, Simeon Rice sacked Jake Delhomme for a 9-yard loss. It marked the 69th consecutive game the Buccaneer defense registered a quarterback sack, a new all-time NFL record.
