TAMPA, FL – Cam Newton threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another score as the Carolina Panthers downed the Tampa Bay Bucs 31-13 on Thursday Night Football.
Carolina improved to 4-3 on the season, the first time the Panthers have been over the .500 mark since 2008. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, fell to 0-7 on year and remains one of just two teams in the NFL that’s yet to taste victory this season (along with fellow Floridians the Jacksonville Jaguars).
