Last week, the experts showed no mercy (and no faith) in the Carolina Panthers for their matchup with the Buffalo Bills. Well, that faith, or lack thereof, was rewarded with a 31-14 thumping.

Now, we know the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to dominate these Week 16 predictions. But will they too come out with a complete sweep on Carolina?
