Buccaneers getting blown out but not giving up

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting blown out in Carolina, with the Panthers taking a 31-10 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

The game's essentially over, but the Bucs aren't giving up. That's admirable, I guess, though it won't win them the game.

They haven't been able to stop Newton all game, though, as the quarterback's completed 16 of 20 passes for a whopping 233 yards and one touchdown, adding another six carries for 10 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. That's going to have to change if the Bucs don't want to make this even uglier.
