Welcome to Week 6 of Carolina Panthers Football!!!

This week Carolina head to Tampa to take on our division rivals the Tampa Bay Bucaneers in a NFC South Showdown. For many Bucc' fans this game is taken as a must win, but for many Panther fans this is a win that we need more so to help save the season. Last week, Carolina rallied back to defeat the Redskins 20-17, this week will be a big task for this team and a lost will be kind of embarassing, im not taking anything away from the Buccs' but it will be devastating for Carolina to walk into Raymonds James Stadium and get blown out by a struggling Tampa team, yes we have our own demons but, it will be crazy for us to loss to Tampa.

This game has some big implications for both teams, whoever wins this game will have a Divisional win in their column which will help out both either team. The Panthers defense looked way better than they have in the pass 3 games so far, and if they can keep that same level of intensity up in Tampa, I believe Carolina will win this ball game. For instance, last week Carolina defense had a safety, they also held the Redskins to only 74 rushing yards and walked away with 5 sacks, Jon Beason had a sack and 10 tackle going all out in "Beason Beast Mode" Carolina defense should be able to put a strangle hold on a the Tampa offense.

The Panthers running game has been struggling latelty but, Double Trouble will be a force in this game, so will the tight ends which at the moment have more touchdowns than the wide outs. Jake has been playing better and been getting the ball to his target and making big plays, which  I believe will continue into this weeks game. But overall I predict a Carolina Panthers victory 28-14

The game will be on FOX at 1pm.
