Bucs blast Panthers, set franchise record for wins
January 10, 2022 - Tampa Bay overcame a week of turmoil resulting from the Antonio Brown situation and a slow start to Sunday’s game against Carolina before ultimately blowing out the Panthers, 41-17. After going down 7-0 at home in the first quarter, the Bucs reeled off 17 straight points en route to their 13th win of the season, a new franchise record. The Bucs were led by quarterback Tom Brady who racked up 326 passing yards and three touchdowns. Tight end Rob Gronkowski stepped up for a depleted offense missing several starters due to injuries and Brown’s release, finishing with seven receptions for 137 yards. A 24 point fourth quarter sealed the decisive victory for Tampa Bay, who now await the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the playoffs at Raymond James Stadium.
