Buccaneers Vs. Panthers: Cam Newton Scores Three Touchdowns As Tampa Bay Loses Its Sixth In A Row

Sporting their throwback orange creamsicle uniforms, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came out on Sunday afternoon at Raymond James Stadium and put forth an effort reminiscent of some of those woeful teams of the past. Tampa fell to Carolina 38-19, to lose their sixth game in a row as the season continues to spiral.

The Bucs would score their first touchdown of the day with a little under seven minutes to go. Quarterback Josh Johnson, who was filling in for an inactive Josh Freeman, hit a wide open Dezmon Briscoe who was streaking down the right side of the field. Briscoe caught it in stride as he broke the plane for the Bucs first score of the day. But it was obviously too little too late, as it merely cut the Panthers lead to 38-19.

The game was dominated by Cam Newton, who broke the single season rushing touchdown record. Newton took it in from one yard out on three separate occasions, scoring his 11th, 12th, and 13th rushing touchdowns of the season.
