The Panthers will keep their postseason hopes alive if they defeat the Buccaneers on the road in Week 17.
They started the game playing like it.
The score capped a six-play, 75-yard drive that took just 3:21 off the clock.
Darnold was 4-of-4 for 60 yards on the possession. He started it off with a play-action pass that went 24 yards to receiver D.J. Moore.
The Panthers had five first downs on the possession and didn’t face a third down. They did get some help with a defensive pass interference penalty on Antoine Winfield that put Carolina at the 17-yard line.
Darnold hit Tremble for the touchdown on the next play.
