Bucs vs. Panthers updates: Tampa Bay beats Carolina 32-6

Buccaneers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP/WFLA) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won their first NFC South title since 2007 on Sunday when Tom Brady threw for 232 yards and a touchdown and Antonio Brown made a grand return to the NFL in a 32-6 route of the Carolina Panthers.

Players out

Wide receiver Mike Evans, punter Bradley Pinion, safety Antoine Winfield Jr. and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul were all listed on the Buccaneers’ inactive report released Sunday. Quarterback Kyle Trask and cornerback Pierre Desir are also on the list.

That list doesn’t include starters lost to injury earlier in the week. Wide receiver Chris Godwin will be out the rest of the season with a torn ACL, and running back Leonard Fournette and linebacker Lavonte David are both on injured reserve.

Roster additions

With so many offensive weapons out, the Bucs signed veteran running back Le’Veon Bell Wednesday. They will also get Antonio Brown back this week after the wide receiver finished out his three-game suspension for violating COVID-19 protocols.
