Buccaneers Vs. Panthers Score Update: Carolina Blowing Out Tampa Bay In The Second Half

The Buccaneers entered Sunday against last place Carolina looking to end a five game losing streak, but so far they are getting torched by Cam Newton and the rout is on in the fourth quarter. The day started poorly when quarterback Josh Freeman was ruled out, but it's unlikely Freeman would have made much of a difference so far today, with Carolina leading 38-12 in the fourth quarter.

Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton has broken the all time single season rushing touchdown record in the second half, converting his third of the day and 13th of the season. Newton has taken it in from the one yard line all three times. He also has 200 yards passing in the air, as dominates the Tampa defense in an embarrassing home loss.

On offense, Tampa has been held scoreless in the second half, as Josh Johnson and LeGarrette Blount struggle to get anything going against what was the 28th ranked rushing defense.
