The Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face each other to kick off their 2014 seasons.
The Buccaneers were a mess coaching wise last season thus they hired Lovie Smith in the offseason and installed Josh McCown as their quarterback. The Panthers have had some health scares with quarterback Cam Newton but all signs point to him being all systems go in this one.
Coverage of the game between the Panthers and Buccaneers will air on FOX beginning at 4:25 pm ET from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL.
The Odds: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2.5 point favorites against the Carolina Panthers. The over/under for this contest is 39 total points.
While the Buccaneers are favored in this one do not expect the Panthers to give up just because they are a road dog.
