Sunday December 14, 2014 - Away Game

LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17 Carolina Panthers 19

The first game for new Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith was against division rival Carolina Panthers.

A lackluster first three quarters saw the Panthers run out to a 17-0 lead, with Derek Anderson making his first start since 2010 in place of an injured Cam Newton. In the fourth quarter, the Buccaneers rallied, scoring late two touchdowns, and trimming the lead to 17-14 with 2:06 remaining. The Buccaneers defense forced a 3 & Out, and Carolina punted, giving the ball back to the Buccaneers offense with just under two minutes to go. On the first play of the drive, however, Bobby Rainey's catch was fumbled away, and Panthers recovered.
