Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to ‘forge a new identity’ on defense

"You just stay positive", McCoy said.

Leading up to the game, I said Ronald Jones II would get the majority of the carries on Thursday night. "It's like, 'Bro, relax". Thursday night should be the first of a few 100 yard games for Godwin moving forward. "We felt good about the play". While a loss to the Los Angeles Rams is more than understandable, falling to the Buccaneers at home is tougher to swallow, considering the teams are division rivals. "But you know, it's a combination of things that we obviously will take a look at and hopefully get those things corrected as we go forward".

The Bucs haven't had a dominant defense since the team's 2002 Super Bowl run, however they're off to a nice start in a new system installed by new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who worked for Arians in Arizona before landing his first head coaching job with the New York Jets.

Users reported on Twitter trouble signing into the Spectrum online streaming service and said it wasn't working. The Carolina Panthers welcome the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Bank of America for a showdown under the lights, with both clubs looking to get in the win column for the first time this season.

Let's break down the game and how we can find the edge that might get us at the top of the leaderboards.

Against the Rams, they were not bad (343 total yards). "As a receiver, he's a hell of a matchup problem, and as a runner, he's a great runner". We thought maybe we could have called something different. They are very talented across the board.

Week Two begins with the Carolina Panthers hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, exclusively live on Sky Sports Action and Main Event.

On top of that, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei would formally ban nuclear weapons under Iranian law. As he arrived at the United Nations gathering, Trump said "we'll see what happens".

"That's what this league's all about".

"It's extremely frustrating knowing that you're getting opportunities and you just can't put the ball in the end zone".

He's seen the Panthers start slow before - like they did in 2013 when they started 1-3 before reeling off eight straight and finishing 12-4. It's simply not good enough when victories are so hard to come by.

The 6-foot-5, 245 lbs passer again failed to showcase his rushing abilities, carrying the ball just two times for zero yards and losing a fumble.

"If Peyton gets a little exhausted, he will get (Jones) in there", Arians said. The Panthers other running backs did not have a single carry between them.

That was a massive change from the 209 all-purpose yards McCaffrey had during Week 1.

Things didn't quite go as planned for the Panthers and Bucs in Week 1. Is the smart money on the Bucs to cover or will the Panthers win comfortably?
