End of 3rd: Buccaneers 13, Panthers 3

Steve Smith busted out a YAC-heavy pass play that set up Carolina’s only score of the game. The Panthers’ offense, however, got nothing after that play, which is why it was only a field goal.

Short passes are killing the Panthers’ D right now. Chris Simms is 19 for 25 for 132 yards, and for the most part, he keeps the Bucs moving the ball. Three holding penalties on the Panthers’ defensive linemen aren’t helping.

Early in the 4th, though, Steve Smith is making some plays. Maybe he’ll wake up some people in Charlotte today…
