The Buccaneers vs Panthers live stream begins at 1:00 p.m. ET/ 10:00 a.m. PT Sunday, November 15 on FOX.
The Buccaneers vs Panthers live stream is about to begin, and it features two teams traumatized by recent losses — especially the Buccs, who are coming off a 38-3 humiliation by the New Orleans Saints. It was their second loss to the team this season.
While the Panthers also lost last week, that NFL live stream was a narrow defeat of 33-31 to Super Bowl champs the Kansas City Chiefs. At 6-3, Tampa is still far ahead of the Carolina Panthers, who are limping along with a 3-6 record and have already lost once this year to the Buccaneers. Oddsmakers currently favor visiting Tampa by 6 points. But last week's surprising games demonstrate that anything can happen.
The Panthers benefitted mightily last week from the return of running back Christian McCaffrey, who missed six games due to an ankle injury suffered in the first contest against the Buccaneers. During the NFL live stream, McCaffrey made 151 yards from scrimmage and scored two touchdowns in his first game back. But McCaffrey suffered a shoulder injury that threatens to take him out of the game again.
That leaves the running game in the hands of running back Mike Davis. He averaged 86.5 yards per game while starting from Week 3 to 8. It's impressive, but no match for what McCaffrey can achieve. Nor does it match up to the Buccaneers' Ronald Jones II, who averages 4.5 yards per run, vs 4.2 yards for Davis. (Still, the Buccs are not a big rushing team overall.)
The Panthers may get a boost from playing on their home field, with some fans in attendance to cheer them on. But they are playing essentially the same matchup as in week two, when Tampa Bay prevailed 31-17. Each team played far differently than expected last week, but chances are slim that the stars will align twice in a row for Carolina.
