New York Giants
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The most promising aspect of the Carolina Panthers remaining schedule is that thereisn'ta Manning left on the slate.
They have come and gone, leaving the Queen City with emphatic victories. Eli and the New York Giants took apart the Panthers 36-7 on a Thursday night in mid-September, and this past Sunday, Peyton and the Denver Broncos cashed in on defense and special teams to go with the legends methodical passing game to cruise to a 36-14 triumph.
Up next are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team Carolina dominated a year ago, but struggled against in losing the season-opener on the road. The Bucs (5-4) beat Carolina in the first game, 16-10. The Panthers rushed for a franchise record-low 10 yards that afternoon.
At the time, it seemed like somewhat of an anomaly given that the Panthers (2-7) won last years contests 38-19 and 48-16 and combined to run for 433 yards in the victories.
But with a new scheme fully implemented under first-year coach Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay is No. 1...

While his season on the field has been a struggle, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton did kick-off a student initiative program with a $150,000 donation to three schools.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Panthers announced they've signed free agent guard Jeremy Bridges to serve as a stop-gap for their struggling offensive line. Carolina surrendered seven sacks during Sunday's 36-14 loss to the Denver Broncos, tied for the third-most allowed in team history. The 32-year-old Bridges is expected to step in and compete for a starting spot right away...
TEMPE, Ariz. -- When we last caught up with offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges three weeks ago two weeks before the Cardinals waived him it was clear he was unhappy the team had chosen to place him on injured reserve Sept. 2 with torn thumb ligaments that required surgery.
Bridges was certain he would be able to come back by midseason, and that has proven true. The Cards reached...
The Carolina Panthers' pass rush has proven to a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season.
Defensive ends Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy have combined for 15 sacks in the past six games making them the NFL's second-most productive sack tandem in the league behind only Denver's Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he wouldn't trade...
Last week: 29 (+0)
Last week’s loss was only their 2nd loss by more than a touchdown all year. They aren’t to be overlooked the rest of the way. Cam Newton is obviously having a major sophomore slump, but for all of their offensive struggles, they’ve been noticeably improved defensively this year. They’re allowing 3 points per game fewer than they were last year...
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-4) at Carolina Panthers (2-7)
The Buccaneers have really turned it around lately and are now road favorites in Carolina, pretty crazy considering they were road dogs in Oakland a couple weeks ago, 6 point dogs in Minnesota the week before that, home dogs for the Saints the week before that, and then just 4 point home favorites against the Chiefs the week before...

According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has donated $150,000 to three Charlotte middle schools to help them with raising awareness for health and fitness.
With all of the negative attention that Cam has received this season, I thought it would be nice to pat him on the back for doing some nice for the local community.

The Buccaneers took the first meeting against the Carolina Panthers this season by a score of 16-10 at Raymond James Stadium. Since then, the Panthers are ranked 10th in the NFL for most sacks with 25. Tampa Bay’s offensive line will be tested. Keep Josh Freeman from hitting the turf The Buccaneers are 11-3 when quarterback Josh Freeman has a passer rating of 100 or more. In...
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson reportedly were fined a total of $36,000 for separate hits on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last Sunday. Miller was fined $21,000 hitting Newton low on a roughing-the-passer penalty, the Denver Post reported Thursday. Vickerson was fined $15,000 for his horse-collar penalty while sacking Newton...
Given some of the matchups on tap for Week 11 and the myriad injuries affecting the quarterback position, fantasy owners took long, hard looks at Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ryan Tannehill for the kickoff to Week 11 in Buffalo. Their time would have been better spent writing letters to Santa Claus.
Sure, Tannehill threw a touchdown pass to Davone Bess, and I guess that the deep ball intercepted...
