Both teams come into this game at 0-1. Jameis Winston continues to make bad decisions as he threw two pick six in week 1. I know that he can be difficult to trust but he will be better in this game against a division rival. Expect to see more running out of this Bucs team. Ronald Jones gained 75 yards on just 13 carries against the 49ers. A good running game will help take the pressure off of Winston. Carolina has good offensive weapons but their offensive line is suspect. I think the Bucs can get to Cam Newton and pressure him into some mistakes. They had just 1 sack last week but a handful of pressures. Newton has been staying in the pocket more in Norv Turner's offense and he still doesn't seem fully healthy. The Panthers will rely heavily again on RB Christian McCaffery. I think McCaffery will be productive but a short week doesn't help him with the type of workload he gets. 7 points is just too many in this match up.
