The Carolina Panthers suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday that was so crushing it reportedly moved one of team’s players to tears. According to Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis cried while talking about the team’s loss. “Thomas Davis brought tears in describing the Panthers’ latest loss,” Person tweeted. It’s easy to see why Davis was so disappointed after the loss. The Panthers were up 21-10 with six minutes left and blew the lead. The defense allowed Tampa Bay to drive 80 yards in 50 seconds for a touchdown to make it 21-19 Panthers. Carolina also allowed to a two-point conversion to tie the game and send it to overtime, and then they allowed the Bucs to go 80 yards for a winning touchdown in overtime. Davis, who had a team-high 16 tackles, was penalized 15 yards on a questionable unnecessary roughness call during the tying drive. He also forced a fumble on a goal-line stand in the fourth quarter. At 2-8, there is no doubt many Panthers fans are crying along with Davis. At least he didn’t hold up the team bus with his crying.
