Panthers take 21-10 lead after goal-line stand

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked like they were about to take the lead. They had the ball on the Panthers' goal-line, on fourth-and-one, and they were going for it. Doug Martin got the ball, got the ball over the goal-line - and immediately had it punched out. The referees called it a touchback on the field, and couldn't overturn it -- even though it was pretty clear the ball had crossed the goal-line. There was no single view confirming that, though, and the Bucs were left with nothing.

Then, their pass defense collapsed as it had all year, and a few passes later Brandon LaFell walked into the endzone for a 21-10 lead. The Bucs have six minutes to score twice. Can they do it?
