Sunday January 1, 2017 - Home Game

WON - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17 Carolina Panthers 16

The Buccaneers closed out the season sweeping the season series against the Panthers. The game came down to the wire, with the Panthers coming within one after scoring a touchdown with 17 seconds left to play. Instead of tying it up with an extra point, Panthers failed on an attempted two-point conversion.

The Buccaneers were officially eliminated from playoff contention after the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Dallas Cowboys. However, they finished 9–7, their first winning record since finishing 10–6 in the 2010 season, and will pick 19th overall in the upcoming NFL Draft. Mike Evans tied his own franchise record with his 12th touchdown of the season and Jameis Winston broke Josh Freeman’s records for both passing yards and touchdowns in a season too.
