After firing head coach Matt Rhule and trading away RW Robbie Anderson and All-Pro RB Christian McCaffrey for future draft picks, many considered the Panthers’ 1-5 season to be over.
This feeling was only amplified with a faceoff against last year’s divisional leader and arguably the greatest quarterback of all time at the helm.
To everyone’s shock, the Panthers’ interim coach, interim QB, and interim everything else somehow gelled and gave Tom Brady and the Buccs a truly unforgettable 21-3 pounding.

The winning started with an early Brian Burns sack on Brady, then back-to-back run stops by Shaq Thompson and Cory Littleton.
Our offense shined equally well with receiving touchdowns by DJ Moore and Tommy Tremble, and a powerful run game led by D’Onta Foreman with 118 yards and Chuba Hubbard with 64 yards.
QB PJ Walker finished the game 16-of-22 for 177 yards with two touchdowns and a 126.5 passer rating (compared to Brady’s sad 32-of-49 for 290 yards and 81.2 passer rating).
What did you think about yesterday’s game?
Do you think the Panthers can keep pounding?
