BEST OF MAXIM
Carolina Panthers wideout Steve Smith is listed on the injury report with an ankle injury, although he is officially designated as probable for tonight’s game. Smith reportedly injured his ankle in practice on Tuesday when a teammate stepped on his ankle. Smith was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, but is expected to play.
Injury Outlook: Looks like a minor ankle...
According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, Carolina Panthers DE Charles Johnson's MRI came back negative for a groin tear and the team is hoping he will be ready to play next week against the Atlanta Falcons.
From an 0-2 start to back over .500 for the first time in five years. Cam Newton and the surging Carolina Panthers are gaining confidence with each victory.
''At no point did I ever doubt this group of guys,'' coach Ron Rivera said Thursday night. ''Maybe because I'm an optimist, but I really did believe that it was just a matter of time.''
Thursday is Cam Newton’s night. It’s his time to put a show on. He’s without the pressure of a home crowd and can rally his teammates on the road, as the 3-3 Carolina Panthers visit the winless and troubled Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game kicks off at 8:25 p.m. ET on the NFL Network.
Newton has become the forgotten man among the NFL’s elite athletic quarterbacks. Thursday...
After defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's post-game interview with NFL Network got weird in a hurry.
When Carolina fell 22-6 to the Cardinals a couple of weeks back, there was legitimate discussion from talking heads about Cam’s future with the team.
Time is a funny thing, because all that talk has gone out the window, and rightfully so. He has the franchise over .500 for the first time in 70 games. Since that loss, Cam has completed 58 of 75 attempts for 667 yards and six touchdowns...
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Cam Newton is playing some of the best football of his career, and the surging Carolina Panthers are back over .500 for the first time in five years.
An efficient Newton threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score Thursday night to pace a 31-13 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Panthers (4-3) won for the fourth time in five games following...
Carolina Panthers (3-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-6)
The Panthers are much better than their record. Only 4 teams (Denver, Kansas City, New Orleans, Seattle) have better point differentials than the Panthers, who are 2nd in the NFL to only Kansas City in points per game allowed. They are moving the chains at an 80% rate, as opposed to 71% for their opponents, a differential is...
The Panthers have a red hot quarterback, a stifling defense and - finally - a winning record following a three-game win streak.
Momentum is on their side.
And that's a good thing for the Panthers (4-3), who are entering a tough stretch of November games against division rival Atlanta, San Francisco, New England and Miami.
Critics will contend the Panthers haven't beaten...
This is the biggest game the Panthers have played since the 2008 season, where they bowed out to the Cardinals in the NFC Divisional Round.
Sitting at 3-3, a win over the Buccaneers would place them over the .500 threshold for the first time in over four seasons. For the most part, this franchise has been devoid of national press for the last couple of years, but not this week. Websites...

TAMPA, Fla. — In a Thursday Night Football battle of two NFC South teams looking to turn face on their franchise, one continued to improve while the other continued their downward spiral. Behind the efficient play of quarterback Cam Newton, the Carolina Panthers knocked off the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-13. It was Newton’s night […]
Tiquan Underwood’s fade was about the only highlight for the Buccaneers during their game against the Carolina Panthers. How exactly is a helmet supposed to fit on this head?
Underwood was made famous two seasons ago when he was released by the Patriots on the eve of the Super Bowl.
