Half time: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

A rarity to end the half, but more familiar sights throughout it: some poor decision-making from the QB Winston, some tigerish sacks, and the star running back Christian McCafferty going over the line twice, once on a run and once as a receiver.


One second left of the half

Slye will have a chance of a fair catch free kick from where the catch was taken. It's a long old way...

.... and it is...

No good! Just wide of the upright and that is the half.


Second quarter: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

A sensational pass from Winston and it seems to be in the air for an age as Mike Evans runs onto it. The ball is into his arms, he juggles it, he loses it, he seems to grab it again and... he's dropped it. That was a certain touchdown had he held onto it.


Second quarter: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

Panther QB Allen has problems of his own as he gets nabbed for a loss of, ooh, 12 yards. They're soon punting that away.


Second quarter: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

First and ten on the 12 yard line. The Bucs snap it... and have lost it! Have they? Winston pump-fakes but cannot find any way to get rid of it. They just about gather it. Loss of nine yards.

Now Winston pulls back deep into the pocket and out to the side... he cannot see a pass... he is holding, holding, holding and he's going to get got here. Coverage sack! You've got to throw that away, surely, if you're the QB? Forced fumble and the ball is with the Panthers.

Three first half turnovers for the Bucs.


Second quarter: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

Winston does brilliantly to stay on his feet and find Evans, He is a big, strong QB and he made that count to his advantage there under a lot of pressure.

Wonderful catch from Wilson here as he just manages to grab on and get both feet down before his momentum takes him out of bounds. He's out at the Carolina 12 for a gain of ten yards.

We've had the two minute warning...


Second quarter: Panthers 17 Bucs 7

Allen with excellent presence of mind to just hold and hold and hold and assess things as he watches it all unfold.... but he's not going down the field, he's going short on the diagonal to Christian McCaffrey. The running back gathers the ball, spins and powers forward, he defenders have no chance against this guy in open field and he is soon spinning through for his second touchdown. Vernon Hargreaves the man who slips over and is left looking pretty silly, sitting on his keyster as the form man McCaffrey takes it home for his second TD.


Second quarter: Panthers 10 Bucs 7

Winston's pass is intercepted! Barber the target but it is snapped up by Elliott


Second quarter: Panthers 10 Bucs 7

Panthers cannot reply to any effect with their offense and are soon punting it away. Bucs have the ball back before you know it.


Second quarter: Panthers 10 Bucs 7

More like it for the Bucs! OJ Howard with a catch and a run as Tampa put some plays together and get close to the Panthers goal line.

They got the ball because of a fumble on a punt and now Ronald Jones has twisted and jinked his way over the line from close range for a touchdown.


End of first quarter: Carolina Panthers 10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0

That is an excellent start from the Panthers. Winston and the Bucs offense have not turned up.


First quarter: Panthers 10 Bucs 0

Moore is getting his game going down that left flank and has snaffled another catch. McCaffrey punches through now for a few yards and, having started on their own one, it's second and goal for the Panthers.

McCaffrey again... he tries to charge through for the line but is stopped.

Third down: Allen goes for the line and he now is stopped.

They're going for it on fourth dow!

Fourth down: McCaffrey muscles towards the line... has he got it? He has!

A 99-yard drive for the touchdown and it came down to a matter of an inch or two! But that's a touchdown alright.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

Having started on his own one yard line, Kyle Allen has the ball, it's third down and four and the Panthers are pushed back a long way into their own territory... and they complete a first down. Quick pass, accurate and efficient.

Nice pass now as well for Olsen as the tight end runs onto a 16 yard pass.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

Strong composure from Winston as he comes back in the pocket and has the presence of mind to find Godwin, who fights hard for the ball and gets it. First down. But Winston makes a poor decision next play and they lose seven yards.

Neither side's offense impressing much so far, it's second and 17 and there is an offensive time out.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

Kyle Allen airs out the ball on first down but it is not quite gathered. And a similar play right after as Allen delivers it for DJ Moore down the left but he cannot cling on. Quite a tough catch. But third down, he finds Moore again, this time a shorter pass, and he drops it under no pressure. That's not good. Punt.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

Winston looks for Wilson but he's not quite got that one right as well, he didn't put the ball where he wanted and this is going to be the lot on third down. Bucs punt.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

The Bucs defense do the business and it's three downs for not a lot for the Panthers. Nevertheless, they do have a field goal opportunity - and it's good. 49 yard field goal from Slye.


First quarter: Panthers 3 Bucs 0

And Winston has thrown a pick on the very first play! He looks for a regulation pass to Evans but it is picked off by Bradberry at the Tampa Bay 31.


Jameis Winston

has thrown 11 touchdown passes this season, second in the NFL, and he's going to get first use of the ball here as the Bucs Offense line up.


The players are out on the pitch

Which looks fantastic, I have to say. Very cool to have this in London. We're having a bit of military stuff, as we must do, before some anthem singing and then it's on with the show.


Chap from Peaky Blinders is in
