Panthers Fire Assistant Brady Hoke After Loss to Buccaneers

WATCH Bucs S Andrew Adams picks off Cam Newton for the 3rd time

Greg Olsen's nagging foot injury returned again on Sunday as he left the Carolina Panthers' game again against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"The "D" was fantastic", coach Dirk Koetter said after Sunday's 24-17 victory over the reeling Panthers. "That was my goal going into the game".

"Jameis is a fantastic player, and sometimes that gets negated by turnovers", Koetter added.

"See ball, go get ball - that's all that's in my mind", Adams continued about his interceptions.

The biggest drivers behind a Bucs turnaround are a firmer defense, led by a more potent pass rush, and mistake-free play from the quarterback position. "He caught a couple passes on me, but nothing deep, though, nothing over the top".

"We came out, we fought hard and we did what we were supposed to do", said Winston. Instead, they sit at 6-6 on the bubble of a wild card playoff berth and hoping to stop a four-game losing skid. "I just have to play better, that's what it comes down to", Newton said.

"But, hey, we put ourselves in this situation", Newton said, "and we have to get ourselves out". That's really want I'm here for. The Panthers are allowing a 68.8 pass completion rate, 268.8 pass yards and three pass touchdowns per game. Newton continued his streak of throwing multiple touchdowns finishing the game with 28 completions for 300 yards from 41 attempts throwing two interceptions and four interceptions. It was the first time since his rookie year that Newton threw four interceptions in a game.

More time spent with them this Christmas will prepare Meghan and Harry for the arrival of their first baby in March or April. Catherine told her guests: "William and I just wanted to pass on our huge gratitude to all of you here today".

The Buccaneers' top-ranked passing attack was playing without the injured DeSean Jackson (thumb) and was in its second game without tight end O.J.

Newton has thrown at least two TD passes in 11 straight games, extending his franchise record. The defense also sacked Newton four times. Defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Carl Nassib have terrorized opposing quarterbacks most of the season and have only become more risky as the season wears on.

"We'll see what the doctor has to say", the coach said.

To us, that reads like a bit of a demotion for Washington, who was promoted from defensive line coach to coordinator earlier this year, after Steve Wilks was hired by the Arizona Cardinals.

The Bucs went seven consecutive games without forcing a turnover before creating six takeaways - all interceptions - the past two games. G Trai Turner also left in the first half with a neck injury.

Olsen, who did not miss a game from 2008-16, has already missed 12 games since the beginning of the 2017. Both of Winston's touchdowns came on third down after he avoided the rush, first finding Adam Humphries on a 3-yarder early on and then hitting Chris Godwin while on the move shortly before halftime.
