Tampa Bay just lengthened its lead back to 8 points, getting a 32-yard field goal from former UNC kicker Connor Barth to take a 24-16 lead.
The Panthers D at least held Tampa Bay out of the end zone, keeping this a one-possession lead, but the Bucs were able to control the ball on a six-minute drive.
With 10:02 left, then, Jimmy Clausen and the offense is a touchdown and two-point conversion away from tying the game. That's a pretty tall order -- but then again the offense has already scored its third-highest point total of the season.
