The loss to the Panthers is still squarely on Jameis Winston. Bad decisions, bad passes, and scrambling unnecessarily were exacerbated by a poor showing in pass protection by the running backs. The wide receivers, exclusive of Chris Godwin, dropped too many passes. A lackluster performance by the Bucs offense combined with the game planning by the Panthers defensive coaching can be credited with the unit’s success. Buccaneers defense remains a bright spot.
