How to watch Buccaneers vs. Panthers: game time, TV schedule, streaming online, odds, predictions and more

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, in what will be the final game of the 2016 regular season for both teams -- though the Panthers have at least one playoff game yet to come.

With three straight losses under their belt, this will be the Bucs' final chance to redeem themselves. While Lovie Smith doesn't appear to be in danger of getting fired, four straight losses to end a season would be embarrassing and raise some valid questions about his suitability as the Bucs' head coach. A win would at least mitigate those questions -- and who knows, the Glazers may let their decision to retain Lovie Smith hang on this final game.

As for the Panthers, they may or may not want momentum heading into the playoffs -- but they have yet to lock up home field advantage, so they'll certainly want a win. Not at the cost of some quality offensive players, though: both Ted Ginn Jr. and Jonathan Stewart are almost certain to sit this one out.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game.
