LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 28 Carolina Panthers 42

Bucs to start Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB vs. Panthers

With the Buccaneers being in upheval after firing defensive coordinator and benching starting quarterback Jameis Winston, the Buccaneers were facing an opponent on their heels, and plans to give the Panthers their fist home loss of the season.

Bad habits were hard to break. Once again the Buccaneers played a horrible first half. Then, come out for the second half, dropping anchor into an enormous hole. Drive a remarkable comeback. And anothe week of coming up short. This is beging to be an expected fan repeat.

As the Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick silenced the Panther fans, in the stadium, scoring 28-points, cutting the first-half Panthers lead to a one-score game, we still lost 42-28 in Bank of America Stadium.

This was the fourth loss in the last five consecutive games, dropping Tampa Bay to last place in the NFC South with 3-5 following a 2-0 season start up.

It seems the pre-seaon quaterback controversary has the Bucs dragging the anchor and many changes are seen in the horizon to fix the program.

Even with the Buccaneers benching Jameis Winston for Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fitzpatrick was largely ineffective in the first half, while Tampa Bays defense allowed the Panthers to sail over them like a bothersom Red-Tide to score touchdowns on five consecutive possessions giving the Panthers a 14-35 lead befor halftime.

Once again the Buccaneers came out at halftime desperate to score and Fitzpatrick didn't let us down, throwing a pair of touchdown passes to Adam Humphries to rally Tampa Bay. His scoring drives cut the Panthers lead to 28-35 and we had 14:24 remaining in regulation play.

Cam Newton answered with a touchdown pass to Curtis Samuel to regain his two-score game.

Fitzpatrick finished 24 of 40 passing for 243 yards with four touchdowns but his two interceptions sealed our fate.
