Panthers offense explodes against Buccaneers

Panthers Week 9 injury report Cam Newton limited again Torrey Smith still out

The Carolina Panthers have stability at the quarterback position.

Games against the Carolina Panthers did not work out well for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

McCaffrey rushed 17 times for a team-high 79 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes on six targets for a team-high 78 yards.

The Buccaneers don't seem ready to give up on Jameis Winston.

The Panthers (5-2) defeated the Ravens in Week 8, 36-21. "A lot of teams don't switch because they have an untested backup or they're afraid to put their backup in there - and we don't have either of those".

And he's not about to this year.

Said Newton: "When it's clicking, it's clicking".

It's not the kind of compliment you want to hear from an opposing quarterback.

While their performance on the defensive side of the ball has been paltry, the Bucs are ranked No. 1 in both total offense (476.6 ypg) and passing yards (376.3 ypg). They also have 27 catches for 403 yards and three TDs receiving entering Thursday night's game at Pittsburgh.

Moore, who was the 24th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, is third on the team with 117 rushing yards.

Panthers safety Eric Reid took a knee during the national anthem to protest racial and social injustice.

As usual, the losers on a day of solid victories turn out to be the guys not playing. Yes, even at 33 years old. That might explain, in part, why Newton hasn't attempted many passes down the field this season.

Newton said that when they got the ball back only up a score after being up 28, there was no panic from his team. You mess up the timing on the throws.

The Bucs will make it a priority pressure Newton, but that hasn't proven easy to do this season.

A Coaching: Offensive coordinator Norv Turner called another tremendous game. At this rate, McCaffrey could become the most productive back in Carolina Panthers history.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said players have to own the ineffectiveness. With eight of the team's 16 sacks through seven games, he's almost halfway to the career-best 16 he had for the New York Giants when he was an All-Pro in 2011.

The Panthers didn't get much of a boost from their win over the Buccaneers, at least in USA TODAY's weekly National Football League power rankings. "He practices hard, he prepares hard". Moore is unlike anything he's seen since his arrival in Carolina in 2011.
