What you need to know about the Buccaneers
The Buccaneers fell short against the Pittsburgh Steelers, falling 20-18 in Week 6 despite strong performances from running back Leonard Fournette (101 all-purpose yards, 1 touchdown) and his defense. The most glaring problem for Tampa Bay was its inability to capitalize on trips to the red zone. In four trips inside the Pittsburgh 20-yard line, the Bucs have recorded three field goals and only one touchdown.
The Buccaneers have yet to find their offensive footing in 2022. Through six weeks, Tampa Bay is averaging a league-worst 20.2 points scored and 67.5 rushing yards per game. While some of their struggles can be attributed to injuries, there is plenty of cause for concern for the Bucs going forward.
What you need to know about panthers
The Panthers battled hard four through, but were simply outplayed by the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in their 24-10 loss in Week 6. Former XFL standout PJ Walker started for Carolina with Sam Darnold on injured reserve and Baker Mayfield battling an ankle injury. Walker was forced to leave the game against the Rams with a neck injury, but he is expected to be available against the Buccaneers in Week 7.
The Panthers are clearly headed for a rebuilding project, and that became even clearer when they traded McCaffrey. D’Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are expected to split carries going forward.
