Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24  Carolina Panthers 17 Sunday 2 December 2018        at  Raymond James Stadium
The Buccaneers made it two wins a row with a much-improved defensive performance in recording four interceptions of Cam Newton.   Jameis Winston had another turnover-free performance with two scoring passes and only a goal-line fumble by Peyton Barber spoiled the offensive output.   Andrew Adams had three of the interceptions to tie a single- game record held by Ronde Barber (twice) and Aqib Talib.
