NFL Picks And Predictions Week 16: Buccaneers Vs. Panthers

Losing has been an ongoing issue as well for the Bucs, who look to put an end to their eight-game slide Saturday on the road against the NFC South-rival Carolina Panthers from Bank of America Stadium.

Tampa Bay is coming off Saturday's lopsided 31-15 loss versus the Dallas Cowboys, one Morris deemed as unacceptable, disappointing and not good enough. Morris' 4-10 record may not be good enough to last another season, but then again the Bucs have endured many other losses of the recent ilk such as a 48-3 drubbing at the hands of San Francisco, a 37-9 bashing by Houston and a 41-14 setback against Jacksonville.

The CBSSports.com experts all agree the Panthers will win this one. All ten of the ESPN experts agree.

Peter King thinks the Panthers will cruise to victory:

"You know what I love about Cam?" owner Jerry Richardson of the Panthers told me the other day about Cam Newton. "He hates to lose. He really hates to lose. That's something I really like to see in our team leaders." It's taken Newton about five months to become one of the main ones on this team.
