    1. Cam Newton and the Panthers rediscovered a bit of swag in snapping their two-game losing streak. The mercurial quarterback was more smile than scowl after a somewhat ho-hum performance. Newton completed 18 of 32 passes for 154 yards, a touchdown and an interception. His 25-yard TD pass to Kelvin Benjamin in the fourth quarter put the game out of reach for an anemic-looking Bucs offense that was Grant Dayton Authentic Jersey outclassed by the Panthers' defensive blockade. Newton also benefited from a running backs corps that helped diversify the Panthers' attack. Jonathan Stewart became the first Carolina player other than Newton to score a rushing touchdown and Christian McCaffrey broke the team's single-season record for receptions in a single season with his five-catch, 49-yard effort, giving him 49 catches for the season. It wasn't a chunk playfest by any means, Hyun-Jin Ryu Authentic Jersey but Newton probably will be happy to talk about this one.

    2. Remember those rosy offseason prognostications about the Bucs? They're all but a distant memory, and Sunday's performance certainly throws another shovelful of dirt on what could be dying playoff aspirations. Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey The defense put in a solid effort, but the Jameis Winston-led offense looked lost at times. Winston completed 21 of 38 passes for 210 yards but struggled to piece together drives and threw two fourth-quarter interceptions. Although a stronger run game and more reliable receivers could've enhanced Winston's effectiveness, the bottom line is he didn't play well enough to give the Bucs a solid chance. It'd be premature to say the third-year quarterback is facing a stunted development season (he had a strong second-half effort against the Bills last week and has been dealing with a sore shoulder), but he'll need to play better if the Bucs have any hope of a post-Halloween resurrection.

    3. Tom Brady isn't the NFL's only age-defying playmaker. Julius Peppers is playing like it's 2007. He increased his season sack total to a team-leading 7.5 on the season and finished with two tackles. Peppers also Jacob Rhame Authentic Jersey move up to fourth on the NFL's all-time sack list. Still, he wasn't the only one making life hard on the Bucs. Luke Kuechly, in his first game back from his third concussion in three years, had an interception, a fumble recovery and six tackles. Overall, it was strong defensive effort the Panthers can build upon. "I think our guys played hard and played as a group," Kuechly told FOX after the game. "We got to be consistent. We got a lot of good teams coming up ... hopefully we can take the momentum from this win and move forward."
