Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Hello sports fans. I would like to begin by welcoming everyone to my articles. Today I would like to input my opinion on the Carolina Panthers and their chances not only this weekend but in the rest of the season. On Sunday they will be playing the Bucs with a 1 pm kickoff.

That opens up an opportunity for Derek Anderson to have the starting position. Anderson played well back in week one leading the Panthers to a victory over the Bucs 24-17. That was Week 1. This is Week 15. Both teams […]
