Three Panthers who could be trouble for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to ‘right the ship’ this weekend against the Carolina Panthers after falling short against the New Orleans Saints to open up the 2020 season this past Sunday.

The Buccaneers, led by QB Tom Brady, will play their first home game of the season Sunday afternoon and are looking to get into the win column against a team that they are favored against. Tampa Bay enters this game noted as a 9.5-point favorite, for those wondering.

As we continue to prepare for the home-opener, here’s a look at three Carolina Panthers players who could be trouble for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Christian McCaffrey

We’re starting out our list with the most obvious name, someone that Buccaneers fans have come to know very well over the past couple of seasons: Christian McCaffrey.

The Panthers offense lives and dies by the plays made by McCaffrey and there’s really no other way around it.

McCaffrey is one of the league’s top play-makers and he is able to generate yardage in a whole facet of ways. The Bucs will key in on slowing down the explosive running back and forcing the Panthers to beat them in other ways, but it certainly won’t be easy.
