The disappointments of the previous week were forgotten in Carolina as the Bucs scored on nine consective possessions, never once punted and ran up one of their biggest road scores in team history.  Ronald Jones set a franchise record with a 98-yard scoring run in the third quarter and Tom Brady added three touchdown passes.  The defense totally shut down the Panthers from the second quarter onwards and the Bucs moved to 7-3 on the season.
