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.
