Week 8 NFL Predictions

By




THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24

8:25 PM ET

PANTHERS (3-3) AT BUCCANEERS (0-6)

Opening line: Panthers -6.5

The Panthers lead the series 14-11. Tampa Bay has won the last two games against Carolina. Carolina has won seven of the last 10 games played in Tampa Bay. The two teams have split the last 10 games and the last two games were decided by six points each. — Jerry Tapp

Two straight solid outings have the Panthers sitting at .500, just two games behind the Saints in the NFC South. With rookie QB Mike Glennon without one of his best weapons in RB Doug Martin, and facing Carolina's tough defense, the Bucs will struggle to gain much momentum. — Zach Doleiden
