16 Oct Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers seek first wins in crucial NFC South clash
Week Two begins with the Carolina Panthers hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event.
Here is exactly what to expect…
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ (0-1) new head coach Bruce Arians wasn’t able to immediately remedy the group’s turnover difficulty since Jameis Winston threw three picks in Week One, two of which have been returned for touchdowns.
They lost the turnover battle , although the Bucs pipped the 49ers in yards and first downs. Arians has a lot of work to perform as his staff will face the Rams, Saints, and Titans.
Carolina (0-1) also suffered a home defeat in opening week, but a thin one (27-30) to defending NFC champs, ” the Los Angeles Rams.
Though the Panthers rallied from 16-3 to draw at the beginning of the fourth quarter, the defense couldn’t include Todd Gurley – that ran for 64 meters that are fourth-quarter – along with a pick that is critical threw together with five minutes left.
Even though Winston had a day appeared a transformed man after a rookie year that was poor and led a powerful Tampa Bay floor game. In Week 1, he also averaged 5.8 yards per carry and handled more yards (75) than he had in his entire year (44).
The Panthers surrendered 166 metres to Gurley and company – Thursday will Arians ride on Jones?
In Carolina’s backfield, Christian McCaffrey last week (19-128-2 and 10-81) became the first player in the Super Bowl era to capture at least 120 rushing yards and 10 grabs in a number of matches (Week 12, 2018).
He is one of the most versatile attacking weapons in the league and final season, he was only 35 meters shy of 2,000 scrimmage yards with 867 getting and 1,098 racing. He is worth pruning.
It’s about the multiplayer conflict and especially, about how Winston can take care of the ball.
In 55 career starts, 61 interceptions have thrown. He has fumbled the ball 40 times, and dropped it on 17 events – leading the league because he had been drafted in 2015. It is simply not good enough when victories are so hard to come by.
As a team, the Bucs gave away the ball a 35 times last season – .
