SuperCam Flies High!!!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in to their week 8 match-up against division rival, Carolina Panthers with high hopes of nabbing their first win. That hope was squashed in the first quarter. The Panthers came out swinging shutting down the opening drive for the Bucs. Carolina’s first possession of the game consisted of 4 3rd down conversions, a total of 15 plays and nearly a 9 minute march down the field for their first touchdown, a pass from Cam Newton to Greg Olsen in the end zone. By the end of the 1st quarter, the Panthers were up 14-3.
Newton completed 23 of 32 passes for 221 yards and 2 touchdowns with no interceptions. SuperCam was on fire Thursday night, he also rushed for 50 yards on 11 carries and ran one into the end zone for a touchdown. Wide receiver, Ted Ginn, led the team on the receiving end with 5 catches for 80 yards.
The final score 31-13 was a bigger win than many predicted for Carolina. The Panthers now 4-3 have made it over .500 for the first time in 5 years. Tampa Bay now 0-7, have lost 12 of their last 13 games. Fans are calling for the axe for Coach Shiano.
Week 8 was good one for the Panthers who can now officially say they are in the play-off hunt. They played like a well-oiled machine on Thursday. Next week Carolina will host the Atlanta Falcons (2-4), another division rival. The Buccaneers will travel to face the NFC West leaders, the Seattle Seahawks (6-1). By Sabrina Sales
