The Bucs broke their two-game losing streak with an unconvincing victory over the one-win Panthers at a wet Raymond James Stadium. The defense shut down rookie QB Bryce Young and Mike Evans had a huge game and went over 1,000 yards for the 10th straight season. Chris Godwin scored on a reverse for the second time in his NFL career and the ground game amassed 128 yards to take the pressure of a mis-firing pass offense in the difficult conditions.
