Tampa Bay was considered to be a threat to the Saints and Falcons this season, but instead have dropped five games straight. QB Josh Freeman is questionable with a shoulder injury which would make this a grave situation for the offense. The Bucs secondary plays well but the entire defense got run over literally last week by the Tennessee Titans.
That could be a problem since Panthers QB Cam Newton loves to run with the ball. Oh yeah, they also have some good running backs in DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. The Panthers are looking to try to get a winning season by winning the next five games and the Bucs are in their way.
In all honesty, I would have picked Tampa Bay if this were the beginning of the season. If the Bucs do lose his game, the rest of their season is in serious trouble.
My pick for the winner: Carolina Panthers
