17-10 Carolina as Steve Smith scores

The Panthers quickly recovered from their missteps to allow Tampa Bay to tie the game at 10-all. A 6-play, 73-yard drive just ended with Jake Delhomme throwing a 38-yard rainbow to Steve Smith for a TD.

I said in the pregame on WCNC that Smith would need to score at least once for the Panthers to win this game, and who knows, he may need to score twice. But it's nice for Carolina that their biggest offensive threats -- Smith, their two RBs and Muhsin Muhammad -- are all having at least decent games so far.

It's 17-10, Carolina, with 8 minutes still to go in the third quarter. Already, in the first 7 minutes of the second half, we've had more points (14) than we had in the entire first half (13).

I really hope this is not a case where the defense gives up a touchdown after the offense has scored one. Based on the past couple of weeks, I don't feel very confident.
