Teddy Bridgewater failed to finish their game against the Bucs and was only limited to tallies of 136 passing yards on an 18/24 passing clip along with two touchdowns before exiting the field. QB2 and former XFL standout P.J. Walker saw action and recorded 12 passing yards on 2 of 4 passes completed for the Panthers.
Wide receiver D.J. Moore also generated 96 yards on four receptions with a scored touchdown. However, outside of him, the other offensive players of the team failed to gain momentum on the field which led to subpar outings in the final three quarters of the game.
The Week 10 tilt turned out to be a one-sided affair with the Buccaneers running away with a 46-23 victory to improve to a 7-3 record for the second place in the NFC South while the Panthers stretched their losing skid to five games en route to a 3-7 tally.
Bridgewater will still be evaluated on a day-to-day basis but the outlook for the former Louisville product remains optimistic thus far. With the team's QB1 looking ahead to play under center against the Lions, head coach Matt Rhule is aiming to lead his team to bounce back and snag their fourth win of the season.
