Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers look to snap their losing skid when they head down to play the also-failing Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of these teams will leave with a win, so tune in at 1:00 PM ET to see.
For a hot minute, it looked as if the Carolina Panthers were the red-hot team that went to the Super Bowl. Then, they got smacked down by both the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears. With the season almost half-over, there is no more room for mistakes, so when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they need to bring. it. The Bucs also need to snap out of it, as they’ve dropped three-straight games to the New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals and the (surprisingly strong) Buffalo Bills. These thirsty teams are going to go all-out in search for that elusive win, so it’s going to be a wild game to watch.
It might be one of the last times fans get to see Cam Newton. The 28-year-old Carolina quarterback is behaving in ways that some thing he’s on his way out. Following his misogynistic comment about a female reporter, Cam pulled another bizarre stunt during a press conference. After he was asked a (admittedly dumb) question about “chunk plays,” Cam rolled his eyes and ended it abruptly. NFL sources tell Bleacher Report that this frustration was part of his frustration, and that it may signal that he’s “begun to decline.” Some are even thinking he’s on his way out.
Or, it could just be a seasonal slump. It’ll be interesting to see if meeting Jameis Winston, 23, and the rest of the Bucs might spark the Carolina Panthers back into shape. Or, it might be what Tampa Bay needs to snap its three-game skid. Considering this game is between two NFC South rivals, a win will have huge implications on the post-season picture. Fans better tune in to watch.
