The Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2011 season continued to spiral downward on Sunday with an embarrassing 38-19 home loss to the Carolina Panthers. With quarterback Josh Freeman inactive with a shoulder injury, it was expected that the passing game would take a hit on Sunday with Josh Johnson manning the ship.
Kellen Winslow was coming off two of his more productive games of the season against Tennessee and Green Bay, but the Bucs tight end had a quieter day on Sunday. Winslow finished with four catches for 41 yards and no touchdowns. Winslow was targeted just 5 times by Johnson, who finished the day with only 16 completions against one of the league's worst defenses.
