It’ll be the last chance for romance in the 2021 campaign for the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. And by “romance,” we mean just a single, little win.

Here’s how to watch and what to watch for as the Panthers try to snap their six-game losing skid against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Week 18

Sunday, Jan. 9, 4:25 p.m. ET

History

Despite the loss from two weeks ago, the Panthers still have the lead in the all-time series, 24 to 18.

That Week 16 outcome, though, has given the Buccaneers wins in five of the past six meetings. The last three of those, in fact, has seen Tampa Bay outscore Carolina to the laughable tune of a 109-to-46 differential.

What to watch for

Head coach Matt Rhule and the Panthers don’t have many, if any, stops left. But expect them to pull out whatever they have to prevent themselves from heading into the offseason on a seven-game losing streak.

All eyes, as usual, will be under center for Carolina—where Sam Darnold is set to make his second consecutive start. While Rhule did not, per usual, disclose any specific details regarding another multiple-quarterback approach, we may or may not see Cam Newton in action for what could be his final game with the franchise.

For Tampa, expect to see everybody . . . except Antonio Brown. The Buccaneers, who are still jockeying for position in the NFC playoff race, will be a full-go according to head coach Bruce Arians.
