Bucs get first win of season on road against Panthers

Buccaneers

The highlights of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win over the Carolina Panthers:

ONE – The defense held Christian McCaffrey to 37 yards on the ground after he rushed for 128 yards against the Los Angeles Rams.

TWO – A healthy Vernon Hargreaves prevented McCaffrey from getting a crucial first down at the end of the game.

THREE: Shaquil Barrett recorded three sacks adding to the one sack he snagged in the first game. He is currently the only player on the Buccaneers roster to get to the quarterback in the first two games of the regular season.

FOUR: Chris Godwin was targeted nine times by Jameis Winston and, although the statistics show he caught eight of those nine passes, he actually caught that “missed” pass out of bounds. He also scored one touchdown.

FIVE: Jameis Winston did not throw any interceptions and he did not fumble the football.
