In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers on Monday at Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, North Carolina.
Carolina and Tampa Bay both stand at 1-3 and both teams had playoff aspirations pre-season. Some believed Jameis Winston can lead the Bucs to the playoffs while many predicted the Panthers to reach the Super Bowl. This is a must-win game for them because whoever lose this game, might say goodbye to the playoffs. That’s why I expect this rivalry game to be very close and the winner will be decided in the final minutes. Neither team has confidence in running the football and both secondaries are awful since Panthers’ secondary let Matt Ryan throw for 500+ yards last week. Jameis Winston might give the edge for the Buccaneers on offense and Cam Newton is still on the concussion list, so we may see Derek Anderson starting for Carolina.
I still think Carolina’s defense will show up when it matters the most in this game and they will deliver the win. Winston may put up good numbers against their secondary but at the end of the day, I think the Panthers will clinch it.
