Fitzpatrick will keep Bucs starting QB job

Panthers Week 9 injury report Cam Newton limited again Torrey Smith still out

Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick almost erased a 28-point halftime lead, but the Panthers held on to win 42-28 at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday. However, the victory meant more to some players than others. Fitzpatrick will get the nod as the team's starter this week against Carolina. We have to continue to get turnovers moving forward if we want to make it to the big one [Super Bowl].

While their performance on the defensive side of the ball has been paltry, the Bucs are ranked No. 1 in both total offense (476.6 ypg) and passing yards (376.3 ypg).

The Bucs have yielded 12 sacks over the past three games, and all three sacks Tampa Bay gave up on Sunday were by Mario Addison.

Ryan Fitzpatrick's four touchdown passes weren't enough to overcome another awful defensive performance that saw the Bucs allow the Panthers to break a franchise record with 35 first-half points.

Inconsistency on offense has been part of the problem. Shoddy defense has been a recurring theme, even in the games the Bucs have won.

Carolina scored on five straight possessions during one stretch of the first half to build a 28-point lead.

The loss dropped the Bucs to 2-3 in games started by Fitzpatrick.

Winston, who was suspended for the first three games of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy, has thrown six touchdowns and 10 picks in four appearances in 2018. Cincinnati defeated Tampa Bay 37-34.

This is the Carolina Panthers team we've been waiting to see since they made their run to the Super Bowl back in 2015. "We knew that, I said it before and I say it with so much respect for Tampa, those guys are extremely comfortable with playing [from] behind". "I'm exhausted of the coaches saying they have to take it because it's up to the players to play ball".

Newton said that when they got the ball back only up a score after being up 28, there was no panic from his team.

With the Panthers up a only a score - and having only converted one first down in over 20 minutes of game time - the Panthers took to the field at their own 25 and put together their most important drive of the game, converting a key third down on a checkdown to Christian McCaffrey that went for 20 yards followed by a play-action rollout to Greg Olsen for another 20.

"We know we have the talent, it's just we can't keep digging ourselves in these holes, especially on the road", Fitzpatrick said. Your team is in a great spot right now, and they have a chance to go back to the Super Bowl.
