This game never seemed “not over.” But if we have to pinpoint where this one was clinched, it was probably at the 2:08 mark of the third quarter.
Already down 22-6, the Panthers allowed running back Ronald Jones II to prance untouched into the end zone for a 7-yard score. That helped give the Buccaneers a 23-point edge, a deficit this Carolina squad couldn’t even touch on their best day.

The 5-10 Panthers will take a trip down to New Orleans for Week 17. There, they’ll meet the division rival Saints as they look to snap their five-game losing streak.
