We got two teams that you know are the top two year in the league.
But Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many would say, Aren't that good.

It should be an entertaining game for sure.

Anyway, we'll see how that goes for the book for the Bucks this season.
Meanwhile, Jamis Winston, the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, another fascinating part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this year to see how Jameis Winston will do because how good the Buccaneers do this season depends heavily on how well Jameis Winston performs, and if he's able to stay healthy as well.
So yeah, we'll see how Winston does tonight.
We're just about ready for kickoff.

The snap from Trion ER Winston will throw to the left side, and it is caught for the first down and more.
He's running and he'll be tackled about 15 yards past the first down marker.

The Buccaneers offense in 2018 rank third total.
Here is their offense.
Evan Smith, Ali Maher, Pit Ryan, Jenson, Alex Kappa, Peyton Barber, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Cameron Break and O. J.
That's what the offense looks like for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
First and 10 from the 47 yard line.
It will be a handoff, and he will get nowhere.
It's a loss of yards.
In fact, it's Lukic Lee there with the tackle on Peyton Barber, although there is a flag on the play.
41 seconds in this one. Let's see what the college.
All right, So it's an offensive penalty on the Buccaneer, so the penalty is declined.
The Panthers defense in 2018 ranked 15th 12th and rushing here is there Dean Gerald McCoy, Don Terry Po Co on short.

Glad the week is almost over.
It's the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Carolina Panthers, 13 14 for the Buccaneers.
Too bad play calls, really, that have led to this third and long opportunity for the Buccaneers.
They throw it and it is off the fingertips of birth shard Rashard Perriman, and it will be incomplete forth and 14.
Now the Buccaneers will have to punt, then a first down right away to start the drive.
But after that, nothing going well for them.
So a minute and 48 into the game, the Buccaneers will punt to the Panthers, and we'll see the Panthers take the field for the first time tonight.
So the punters Bradley opinion.
The returner Ray Ray McCloud.
But you're way too tired.
Okay? Yeah, I understand grand. I understand.
Yeah, and that will be punted to the left side. Oh, it's fumbled.
He will recover it, though.
Wow! Wow! And then he has tackled around the six yard line.
So opinion with the punt.
And then Macleod fumbled. It.
Recovered it, though, so it's nothing.
Nothing between the Buccaneers and Panthers.
One minute and 59 seconds into the game, I'll be right back after this commercial, right? Don't go anywhere.
And thanks for tuning in.
It's Thursday Night Football here on SportsCastr.
Yeah, it is a shocker.
I know I'll be right back after this commercial break thanks for tuning in Grant and everybody else.
All right, welcome back to live coverage of Thursday Night Football here on SportsCastr.
It's the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Carolina Panthers from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Thanks everybody for tuning in the Panthers, taking the field for the first time tonight.
Offensively speaking, it's Cam Newton out there.
He has a 94 career record against the Bucks.
Let's see if you can continue that good record tonight.
Yeah, all right.
It will be first and 10 from their own 10 yard line.
Because of that fumble from pinion will be a fake hand off and thrown and that is caught for the first down well done there by the Panthers.
And it is caught by D.
The Panthers offense in 2018 ranked 10th forth and rushing 16th in passing.
Here is their offense.
That Darryl Williams, Greg Van Roten, Matt Peratis, Trey Turner, Taylor Mountain, Christian McCaffrey, Alex Arma, deejay Mork and Curtis Samuel and Greg Olsen.
Alright, here we go, another set of downs.
That's time it will be handed off down the right side, and that will be a first down for the Panthers.
Well, done. There was a hand off the Christian McCaffrey.
You know how dangerous he can be for the Panthers in the running game, and that's another first down for Carolina.
Well, that's a good start for the Panthers on this drive.
First and 10 new set of downs.
Once again, keep an eye on Christian McCaffrey.
So they're already up to the 31 32 yard line, making their way up the field.
After after starting this drive deep in their half, it will be another hand off McCaffrey again down the right side in this time, the Buccaneers read that one, and it might have been a gain of four yards.
The Buccaneers defense in 2018.
Ring 27th 24th and rushing 26 passing.
Here is their defense and Donna Kong Su Cita via William Gholston, Carl Nassib, Devon White, the rookie Levante David and Shaquille Barrett, Carlton Davis, Mike Edwards.
Also rookie. Enjoy Jordan Whitehead.
So there's the defense for the Buccaneers.
This will be a throw from Newton out wide and is caught, and that will be about a gain of two or three yards that was caught by Curtis Samuel, his first action of the night.
Third and four now for the Panthers.
Big third down, coming up.
Let's see what they do here.
Will they run it or will they go with the pass? All right.
Panthers coming out of the huddle.
This would be a big stock for the Buccaneers.
They will throw it and McCaffrey catches it, and he gets the first down as a as he has.
His momentum brought him out of bounds.
But he did get the first down, and that is a nice play by the Panthers.
Wide open for the most part there.
I don't Yeah, wide open for the catch, and it's another first down for the Carolina Panthers.
They are making their way down the field slowly but surely, this will be handed off on the Caffrey down the middle, making its way through, and he'll be down right around midfield at the 50 yard line.
Second down, coming up for Carolina that time, McCaffrey running it right down the middle.
So Cam Newton, on North Turner's fantasy team, he said he picks C Mac for fantasy.
I should have went over and seeing who he was drafting in this league.
That's probably why we aren't throwing deep passes.
All right, So second and four for the Panthers, the clock is stopped at 9 57 and that's because there's a man down for the Buccaneers and this looks serious.
The medical team is out on the field, and while they attend to him, I will step aside for a minute.
Don't go anywhere, everybody.
When we come back for the commercial break, the Panthers will continue their offensive. Dr.
They're making their way down the field.
It's live coverage of Thursday Night Football here on SportsCastr.
Thanks for tuning in.
Welcome back, everybody.
The live coverage of Thursday Night Football here on SportsCastr and Injured Buccaneer is what caused that commercial break.
The Panthers, Meanwhile, we'll hand it off, and McCaffrey is tackled right away by the Buccaneers defense.
How about that Right out of the commercial? Break the Panthers with the play, the Buccaneers read that one well, and, yeah, well done.
They're good tackle by William Gholston.
He's been involved quite a bit for on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense earlier, early on in this game, in a good way to he's made some good tackles.
It's now third and seven for the Panthers.
By the way, this game was Ah, could have been delayed. There were light.
There was lightning in the area, but that cleared out.
So we are playing as scheduled on time.
We'll throw it out right, and it is caught.
But he didn't get the first down.
Wow, it was caught on the play.
Right? But it was Davis with the tackle for the Buccaneers.
Not really a tackle.
He just kind of pushed him out of bounds before he was able to get the first down.
Yeah, well done there by Davis, forcing him out of bounds.
That's a nice play.
Cam Newton tonight.
Four for four for 27 yards so far.
Can you keep up his perfect pass completion rate in this one fourth and one, They'll go for it and can't do and takes it himself.
Did he get it? The ball came out and you know they mark him down.
My goodness, the Buccaneers would have been often running for a formal recovery and a touchdown, but instead they rule Cam Newton down, and I'm wondering, did he get the first down he extended his right arm at the end.
That's what really forced the ball to come out.
I can't tell where the first down marker is.
I don't think they got it now because the clock stopped.
The Panthers go for fourth down and the Buccaneers defense comes up big.
Not falling for that.
A fake hand off the Christian McCaffrey and Cam Newton took it himself.
Doesn't pay off in the end.
In the Buccaneers, we'll take over possessions.
They will measure it here.
It looked awfully close.
Canyon did extend his arm at the end.
Let's see what they got.
Yeah, that's exactly what happened.
It is short clearly on that measurement.
Let's see on the replay, I'm not sure what yard line is the first down he did extend his arm at the end.
I mean, the Panthers definitely have a case to challenge this.
We'll see if they dio the Buccaneers, though.
As of now, if the call still stands will take over with their second offensive drive of the night.
Nothing between the Buccaneers Panthers on Thursday Night Football don't go anywhere.
I'll be back in a minute after this commercial break.
Hello and welcome back, everyone.
While we were in a commercial break, the Panthers did indeed challenge the call.
So Ron Rivera throwing the challenge flag.
So they're now taking a look at it.
If you see here, he extends his right arm out and it's a let's see here.
Here's a better look.
Maybe I don't know.
It's awfully close.
This is a huge, pivotal call. Here is the call.
Let's see if the call in the field stands or if it's overturned.
This is a huge blood.
Well, there you have it.
The call on the field stands.
So the Panthers turn it over on downs and the Buccaneers will take over in very good field position with 8 31 to go in the first quarter is absolutely pouring, by the way, In Charlotte, North Carolina.
I told you about the storms in the area.
It is coming down, huh? We're under DeLay.
This game is heading to a delay because of lightning in the area.
So both teams heading to the locker room.
Each team had won offensive dr.
And just six and 1/2 minutes into this one, the teams and fans are taking shelter as we are in a lightning delay.
What you don't want is a player.
And what I don't want is a commentator, either.
So the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers tied nothing.
Nothing in the first quarter with 8 31 to go, and we are currently in a weather delay.
Chris Hogan, one of my favorites on the Patriots now with the Carolina Panthers.
I'm rooting for him to have a have a good rest of his career.
I loved him on the Patriots, but yeah, they're all heading in the locker room.
So this is an unfortunate situation for them.
For me, for you viewers.
Um, we'll see what we got.
Oh, what? So because of all these storms in the area, there were only two camera angles available on that challenge.
Um, so that's why we weren't getting a good angle.
I kept not understanding why they kept showing that bad angle, so but that was why so, yeah, it says attention, please.
We're under a weather delay on the Jumbotron, and I did not see this coming here and Thursday night games are late in the first place.
And if they get this one resumed.
You know, tonight, uh, this game could go well into the morning.
So we'll see what we got here.
I will keep you updated, but I definitely an unfortunate situation.
I mean, we saw that when this game look at, look at the you can't see it.
But the rain is coming down like crazy you saw.
And I saw in the beginning of this game that it was absolutely down pouring.
So, yeah, once again, temperament Buccaneers, nothing.
With 8 31 to go in the first quarter.
We're currently in a weather delay.
Unfortunately, feel we So, Yeah, it's an unfortunate situation.
I'll see if we get any updates or else I'll have to end the broadcast because I'm not just gonna be talking here if this weather delay ends up being an hour or something.
So once again, the Buccaneers at Panthers, currently in a weather delay and like so, figure out.
Yeah, thanks so much for tuning.
And everybody hope you're enjoying the broadcast.
Unfortunately, six and 1/2 minutes into this game, we have ran into a weather delay, so yeah, let's look at the highlights so far in this one, the Panthers have been handing the ball off to Christian McCaffrey quite a bit.
He's also made some throws to Christian McCaffrey as well.
So McCaffrey, on the first drive of the game for the Panthers, has been involved quite a bit.
Thank you, Sal for joined the broadcast.
Unfortunately, the Buccaneers and Panthers are in a weather delay.
Just six minutes and 29 seconds into this one.
It is absolutely down pouring in Charlotte, North Carolina.
And, ah, there's lightning in the area.
So the teams have had Thio leave the field, so I might have to end the broadcasting.
Let's see what the radar is.
So, yeah, right now it's just down to you.
All of Charlotte is currently thunderstorms right now on the radar.
Let's see if we can get a look into the future.
Yeah, I know, I know, I know.
So, yeah, it's in.
It's unfortunate situation for the players, for me as the broadcaster, um, for everybody.
Because Thursday night games, the Primetime Games, an NFL are late in the first place for us on the East Coast and depending on how long this delay is, this game could end well into the morning.
We'll see what they decide to do.
Um, try together.
I'll try to see if I can get a radar, uh, into the future to see how how long these thunderstorms we're gonna hit or if they'll have to postpone this game, which would be interesting.
I don't know if they'd postpone it to Sunday afternoon or something like that.
Um, but yeah, it's interesting out.
So they totally different or in the teeth, but yes, So I'll stay on here for a little bit, see if we get any updates.
But I appreciate all of you for coming into the broadcast.
I definitely wasn't expecting this, but we did here before the game started that there were there was lightning in the area.
So let's look at some highlights of Jameis Winston so far.
He made some throws.
That's that's definitely for sure to Chris Godwin on this first completion down the left side.
Also handing it off Thio Peyton Barber.
Um but yeah, only on Lee won offensive drive for each team and it all right before the weather delay, it was ah, fourth and one attempt from the Panthers.
Cam Newton faking the handoff, extending his arm out for the first down.
But the Buccaneers read it, and they stopped him.
It was a turnover on down to the Buccaneers were supposed to take over, and that's when the weather delay happen.
The Ron Rivera did challenge the call.
Um, he did challenge the call.
Oh, we got an update, folks.
As we mentioned, the Buccaneers and Panthers are in a weather delay, but the game is expected to resume at 909 p. M.
So the game, that's good news.
So the game will resume in just about 22 minute 21 minutes.
So that is good news.
So I might just keep the broadcast going and tick off some time.
Yeah, the game resuming at 909 So that's good.
Yes, so just heavy thunderstorms passing through the area.
But this game will get resume.
Not a huge, not a major long delay.
Um, Azad was saying Ron Rivera challenged the call, Um, and but there were limited camera angles, I believe.
Because of these thunderstorms, they caused technical difficulties, so there were only two camera angles you didn't have the down the line camera angle.
I'm not sure if Ron Rivera knew that, but, um, but the, uh, he did challenge it.
So there weren't There wasn't a definitive angle to overturn the call, which was unfortunate because it looked like he might have got the first down.
Gladys Knight and last car race with that much, right? Yeah, I know.
I know. So yeah.
Yeah, both of these teams.
Oh, and one coming off losses in week one.
They kick their kicking off week to on this Thursday night, and, yeah, we're currently in the weather DeLay, but this game will resume at 909 Eastern time.
So we will get some more football.
They're pretty soon, About 20 minutes, so I'll just keep this broadcast going.
We could talk about anything you want, NFL, all sports.
I love all sports a lot.
So, yeah, um, I appreciate everyone tuning in my next football broadcast after this will be the Patriots Dolphins on Sunday.
Because I am a huge Patriots fan.
Saw beyond the call for that.
The whole Antonio Brown situation is very, very interesting.
We'll see if he plays on Sunday.
Ah, that's definitely somethingto watch game to go on.
So we're just kind of chilling out.
We can talk, whatever.
Whatever you want to talk about, but yeah, once again, the game resuming at 909 Eastern time.
So that's in about 19 minutes now.
So both teams in the locker room, the fans having to take shelter as well, and yes.
Oh, so, yeah, there are some, uh, some interesting games on the weekend.
I'm looking forward to Ram's sinks.
That's Ah, for 25 game.
That will be on Fox.
I believe that will be, Ah, fun game, I think.
And, uh, yeah, and then the Sunday night game, I believe, is Falcon's Eagles.
That that should be a pretty good game.
Well, though, I think I think the Eagles will get the win.
Um, but yeah, but falcons got blown out by the Vikings, Week one.
Uh, yeah, but I think the patriots to definitely take care of the Dolphins easily.
Although they have had, for whatever reason, just trump trouble with in Miami against the Dolphins.
They dominated the dolphins at home, but in Miami, they've had some struggles, as we all know, the Miami miracle.
Um, but yeah, they This game is under delayed because of lightning in the area, but they will resume at 909 So that's good news. That's good news.
I'll probably I was going to be until halftime, but now it might be before that because I have to get ready for bed around 9 45 because I do have school tomorrow.
Unfortunately, um, yeah, I wish some primetime games were Ah, we're on.
Ah, before days that that I didn't have school.
But fortunately, I got school tomorrow.
So, Sandar lt's route up for Monday.
Yes, I heard that, Sal. Yeah.
Yeah, I heard that. That's crazy.
Um, you don't see you don't see that too often.
Someone getting mono.
I thought, like people from way back in like the fifties.
That was common.
But it's rare these days, but yes.
Oh, yeah, he's out Monday against the Browns on Monday Night Football.
I'll be calling that game as well, but, um, and then yet possibly out for the game against the Patriots? Yeah, So the Jets looked like definitely the second best team in the NFC East to start the season.
They blew that lead against Thea.
The Bills now there without Darnold for one or two weeks.
We don't know how long Now we'll get the radar, the thunderstorms definitely passing through.
They're definitely going south of Charlotte.
So that's good news.
That is good news.
That's why this game will get resumed at 909 Yeah, it's just a little blob of severe thunderstorms, but not not a huge area that's covering.
Um, so that's that's That's why we'll be back.
They'll be back on the field pretty pretty soon, but, yeah, I heard about that cell.
And now the Jets.
Their season already looks to be lost.
Ah, you know the Dolphins blow, obviously.
Um, and then Bill's So patriots, you dig here? The division? Usually.
I mean, there's 1st 6 games.
Should be easy wins.
All right, we got another update for you.
The Buccaneers and Panthers aren't a weather delay, but now the game is expected to resume at 905 p. M. Eastern time.
So we've moved the, uh, the resume time up four minutes.
It's still pouring out there, but they'll play through rain.
It's just the lightning.
That's an issue that they'll play through a downpour.
Uh, no question about that with a similar situation to this on opening night.
Uh, well, obviously, this is the opening night.
But it was opening night last year between I forget who the Eagles were playing, but there was Ah, there was, Ah, lightning delay, I believe, before the game started.
So there was like a 30 30 minute delay before the start of that game.
In this situation, they've played about six and 1/2 minutes and now are in a weather delight.
But they'll get back on the field in about 10 minutes, actually, 11 to be exact.
So that's good news.
That's good news.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tweeting.
Currently in Charlotte, it's just a little rain, and they show they show an absolute crazy thunder store. That's funny.
Obviously you guys can't see it, but it's pretty funny so they can look at the radar gun.
Yeah, the the worst stuff lightning lies is is through the area.
For the most part now, it's just a lot of rain, but that will that will go through as well, probably in the next half an hour.
Eso It should clear up by about 9 30 completely.
But they'll resume at 905 to the Lightning already passing.
So that's good news.
That's good news.
Everybody for tuning in here on SportsCastr.
We're just kind of hanging out talking.
It's a weather delay.
So what are we gonna do? Um, Well, yeah, we're just talking.
Nothing between the Buccaneers and Panthers were resuming this game in about nine and 1/2 minutes.
So we are playing football once again.
Relatively shortly. Pretty shortly.
Live looking at the stadium is completely down.
Pouring, my goodness.
Yeah, That rain is coming down in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Pretty crazy stuff.
Oh, my goodness.
Yeah, We're resuming at 905 Eastern time, everybody.
So yeah, while we're in a weather delay, let's look at some NFL matchups this weekend, because why not? It was weather, but all right, so the one o'clock games, early games, I should say this weekend, Cowboys, Redskins Cowboys looked really good against the Giants.
I'll tell you that once again for a reminder.
All of you just tuning in the Buccaneers and Panthers are currently in the weather DeLay.
The game is expected to resume at 905 p m.
Eastern time, so that's in eight minutes.
So that's the good news.
But Cowboys will beat the Redskin.
Redskins, Colts, Titans, Titans will get the win.
I think Seahawks feelers see ox win.
Steelers looked awful last week.
Yeah, they have.
Ah, I don't know.
The Steelers are good.
I don't think at all this year, I don't see them making the playoffs of Bills. Giants.
I do think the Bills get the win.
I was disappoint with the Giants last week.
It will be a good one, though.
Maybe the Giants engine.
I don't know. That's a tough one. The call.
I am done with the Bills.
Ultimately, Patriots Dolphins, you already know patriots gonna smack them.
I don't even have to talk about that.
Jaguars Texans, Texans will get the wind.
Texans will get the win quite comfortably there.
Vikings pack Packers.
Uh, I think the Packers will get the win.
Both of these teams are wanna know? Think the Packers prevail, though.
I'll be talking about all of this on my show on Saturday, the Sam show, so make sure you tune into that Chargers, Lions Chargers charges in.
Yeah, I don't know the Lions.
They tied with the Cardinals.
Weak one, but I don't have any faith at all in the Lions.
40 Niners Bangles two bad teams.
I think 40 Niners edge out the Bangles in the end, because the Bangles are the Bangles.
Cardinals, Ravens, Ravens will win comfortably of the Cardinals.
Interesting to see collar Murray again, but Ravens will get the wind are Let's head to the late games.
There's 1405 game, and that is Chiefs.
Raiders Chiefs will get the winning that one quite comfortably.
It looks like the teams are getting ready to come back out of the locker room and resume this games.
That's good to see.
And then the 4 25 games. Saints Rams.
This is a very good game, in my opinion.
I am excited for this one.
I think the Saints get get the wind.
It will be a very good game.
Come, it will come down in the last drive.
Deja vu of the NFC championship game.
You could say we'll see if there's any controversy involved as well but that would be fun to watch and then Bears Broncos.
There's were very underwhelming in their opening game, but, yeah, the Buccaneers are heading out of the locker room.
It's good news. The referees as well.
Let me just round up the slate here.
I think the Broncos get the wind.
I'd really d'oh! Ah! And then Sunday Night Football Eagles, Falcons, Eagles will get the win last 14 and then Money my football.
Well, I have to go with the Browns, folks.
I think they do rebound from that embarrassing loss before.
So, yeah, once again, Buccaneers at Panthers in a weather delay, but not for much longer that the game is expected to resume at 905 p.
Looking at the radar once again, the Lightning has passed just rain now, which is also passing.
So that is a good sign.
We are ready to resume football, everyone and we got some football coming your way.
Everybody and ah, yes, the rain still coming down.
But no lightning.
That was the only concern.
So the Buccaneers will take over in pretty good field position in about five minutes time when we get this football game back and running well, historically speaking, anyway, obviously.
Well, yeah, I think he's so much for tuning in.
Sorry, that's got a little bored.
I tried to make the weather delay as entertaining as I could make a weather delay.
Possibly be, which is not to entertaining.
But don't worry.
We're getting back to football soon, so my broadcast should hopefully, uh, get more entertaining for you all tuning in.
But let's look back at some highlights.
The Buccaneers, um, got a first down on their first play of the game, but then, after that, the Panthers defense showing up once again.
The game is expected to resume at 905 p. M.
The Buccaneers at Panthers in a weather delay.
Jameis Winston, by the way, is to for three so far tonight for 22 yards.
Christian McCaffrey, on the other side, is doing very good to start this game off, UH, running the ball and catching it.
Cam Newton heading onto the field, cutting out of the locker room, getting ready to resume this game.
That is a good sign.
We are expected to resume in about three and 1/2 minutes.
Cam Newton is fired up.
Obviously, as a player, you don't want that situation that happen.
But that is the case and fans making their way back to their seats.
Looks like the rain has let up, too.
So that's good to see.
That is good to see, folks.
We got some football resuming in a couple of minutes time.
Thanks so much for tuning in, everybody.
I really do appreciate it.
This weather delayed just about done since it was a short weather delay, considering how long it could have been.
Um, I just kept this broadcast going, and we're staying right here.
It's We are staying right here.
Folks currently in a weather delay, but we're getting ready for some more action.
Back to the radar.
Yeah, The Lightning is now south of Charlotte, completely south of Charlotte.
There's still a little bit of rain in the area, but that even is gonna pass.
But the rain's not an issue.
Once again, I'll reiterate that it's just the lightning.
They'll play through a downpour as long as there's no lightning in the area, you know, I mean, but, um, it's not like baseball or tennis wear, even if even rain would because, you know they're different sports, but where just a **** porn would make them put them in a delay.
That's not the case for football.
He is saying that this game, but yeah, here we go.
Everybody, we're resuming in one and 1/2 minutes, at least according to to what they said.
They said 905 and we're just about there, So I've been just taking off some time.
It was about, what, 2025 I want to say 25 minute weather delay.
Um, so we're just kind of hanging out.
And ah, good thing it was a short weather delay.
I didn't have to end the broadcast.
We'll get back to football very shortly, very shortly.
I mean, like a minute.
A couple of a couple of seconds.
Hey, yes, all right.
Or back onto the field.
Everybody, thanks so much for tuning into the broadcast time.
Samuel Reese, coming to live here on SportsCastrs Thursday Night Football.
Here's a short game summary.
The Buccaneers and Panthers tied nothing.
The game was delayed 26 minutes due to weather Each team had one possession and Cam Newton was stopped on fourth and one so that that's basically the the big points of this game so far, or just six and 1/2 minutes into this one.
So not a lot of information to give you so far this one, although.
And what's a big stop on for the Buccaneers? As the Panthers went for fourth down and we all ready to resume this game? We're ready for more football.
That's always good.
Teams are back out of locker room.
Probably glad that that DeLay wasn't at long at all.
26 minutes is very good compared to other delays.
We've seen nonfootball necessarily, but in other sports, um, but yeah, yeah, um, yeah.
You know, you always hate to be in a delay as a player, but that delay wasn't too too long at all, so it shouldn't get them really out of rhythm.
I think they'll be right back into this game.
Both teams like right from where they left off.
I really do think so.
Just a 26 minute delay.
And here comes Jamis Winston out to the field and the Buccaneers and into a huddle By the way, White of the Buccaneers is currently heading to the locker room with an injury.
If he came out and then went back in.
But that's definitely a concern for the Buccaneers.
We'll keep an eye on what's going on there.
Uh, but momentarily, the Buccaneers will have to replace him. Okay.
I'll keep you updated on that injury.
Not sure what exactly? Injured aren't reminder everybody.
There's 8 31 left in the first quarter between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers.
We just had a 26 minute weather delay, but we are back, back and Adam.
The Buccaneers will have their second spell of offensive possession in this game.
They had one Dr earlier that ended pretty quickly.
Only five plays on Lee.
Four plays before they had to punt.
And yeah, here we go.
Good thing we're playing some more football.
I didn't wanna broadcast just six and 1/2 minutes.
Uh, so yeah, it's good. We're back.
I'll probably be on until about 9 45 will definitely tell that 45 possibly a little later. We'll see.
I do have school tomorrow.
I'm pretty tired.
Um, yeah, you know, just school makes you tired.
So that's the whole deal there.
Um, yes, but yeah, but I got you covered for at least a little more of this game.
Buccaneers have it at their own 46.
Very good field position to start, and we are back under way.
It will be handed off to Peyton Barber, and that will only be a gain of a few yards gain of three.
And it will be second and seven for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
So the Buccaneers definitely have to establish the run that they definitely need to, um, And for Cam Newton, the ground in the air.
Really? Um, and that to keep McCaffrey rolling.
That's definitely true.
If McCaffrey is rolling, then the Panthers are in good shape.
We've already saw that early on.
Winston will throw down the left side and it is caught.
Nice catch there.
How about that? It is caught by Godwin.
Got in with the completion.
That was a nice throw from Winston down the middle of the field.
Why? How? And it was Dante Jackson.
The Panthers was right there.
Almost stripped it out.
But Instead, Godwin came down with the completion.
Jamis Winston So far tonight.
Three for 4 44 yards.
Here we go, new set of downs, and they are now into the Panthers, half of the field well into it.
In fact, this will be handed off right down the middle.
It's run, and that's a nice gain there from Barber.
It will be second in short for the Buccaneers, so a run down the middle will be a gain of six.
In fact, yeah, Peyton Barber has been involved quite a bit for the Buccaneers early on in this one welcome years.
Huddling up and out of that weather delay.
They are driving down the field quickly.
Don't into the red zone already be.
Winston will hand it off Once again.
Barber down the middle.
He was stopped by the Panthers.
Will be third and short.
What the uh, we'll see what the Buccaneers come up with here.
Yeah, Bruce Arians, of course.
The Arizona Cardinals head coach.
From 2013 to 17.
He's now the head coach of the Buccaneers, the 12th head coach in franchise history.
It's a lot of head coaches to go through for the Buccaneers.
All right, third and two, let's see what Winston does.
It looks like you'll throw it.
Yes, he will under some pressure, throw down the left side in the end zone, and it is incomplete.
It was intended for Mike Evans and Dante Jackson was there on man coverage with Jackson to make sure he didn't come down with the catch.
Jackson by covering Mike Evans.
Dante Jackson was a nice throw for Winston.
We've seen many nice throws from Winston, but it was just off the right finger tip of like Evans.
Matt Gaia, 2019 5th round draft pick to take the 40 yard field goal attempt.
Let's see, is up and it is through the uprights for the 1st 3 points of the Games of the Buccaneers didn't get the seven points they wanted, but they did get a field goal there on the board.
They lead the Panthers three.
Nothing back from a weather delay with 5 36 to go in the first quarter.
It is live coverage of Thursday Night football here on SportsCastr Don't go anywhere.
We got more coming up your way right after this quick commercial break.
All right, everybody, welcome back to the broadcast.
It is the 1/100 year of the NFL.
A pretty special ear.
It was a relatively entertaining week.
One for the most part.
We had some good games and weak to is underway here on Thursday Night Football.
The Buccaneers up three to nothing over the Panthers Gay with a 40 yard field goal.
And that kick from Gay is into the back of the end zone for a touchback.
So Cam Newton will take the field for the second time tonight with 5 36 to go in the first quarter, down by three.
So, yeah, all the rain, all the thunderstorms have passed.
All the fans are back in their seats, and Thursday Night football is back and running.
Just a 26 minute delay.
So we are back here.
Cam Newton four for 4 27 yards tonight.
Let's see what he does here.
McCaffrey is lined up to the left of him.
He will fake into McCaffrey.
Throw down the left side is a deep drone is caught Well done.
caught by Curtis Samuel.
Big play from Cam Newton to Curtis Annual and the Panthers are up and running on this drive.
First play the drive, and it's a pinpoint passed from Kim Newton down the left side of launched it to Curtis, Samuel and Vernon, her graves burning, Hargreaves couldn't keep up with him.
That was a throw by Cam Newton and another throw to Samuel, this time incomplete.
Nice coverage there by Carlton Davis of the Buccaneers.
It'll be second in 10 injury update for you.
Devon White of the Buccaneers is out for this game with a knee injury.
We saw him going to the locker room earlier.
He is out for the night.
Unfortunate news for the Bucks.
4 59 to go in the quarter, second in 10 for the Carolina Panthers.
Down three. Nothing.
You know, we'll throw it right away.
Caught by McCaffrey, and he is immediately tackled by Kevin Minter.
But that is still a nice gain.
That throw is to Greg Olsen. I apologize.
It was caught by Olsen.
Nice little completion.
Therefore the Buccaneers, nor of Turner, the offensive coordinator for the for the Carolina Panthers, third and 44 The Panthers big play here.
If they want to take the lead on this drive, we're also have to settle for a field goal.
All right, put on the pressure right away.
It's throwing is caught and out of bounds is Jerry.
Nice job there by the Panthers, and they pick up another first down.
Great quickness from Kim mates side to Gerry s right, and he easily got the first down.
Whitehead came in with the tackle from the Buccaneers and the play selection for the Panthers so so far. Five.
Russia's eight passes.
So Cam Newton lining up McCaffrey is right behind him.
Let's see what they do here.
On first and 10 he will be handed off to McCaffrey down the right side.
The Buccaneers are all over him, and it will only be a gain of one or two yards.
The Buccaneers, doing well to read that play call by the Panthers, and it will be second and eight for Carolina.
She had the Panthers getting the ball to McCaffrey quite a bit.
Total yards in this game so far, the Buccaneers 50 Carolina 104.
Alright, here we go.
2nd 84 The Panthers red zone offense last week against the Rams.
Three possessions for three touchdowns.
So they continue pressure from the Buccaneers.
Kim doing scrambles and he gets out of it and eventually heading towards the sideline just throws it out of bounds.
And it will be third and eight now for Carolina.
Yeah, Cam Newton put under some serious pressure.
You did well to get out of it and avoid a sack.
Just had to throw it out.
So with three minutes to go in the first quarter is 13 8 for the Panthers in the red zone.
So total place for the Panthers So far.
Christian McCaffrey has six touches, so Christian McCaffrey very much so, involved about 40% of the place for the Panthers.
That's crazy, All right, Can you Noel throw and that is out of bounds.
He was intending for that one to get to Greg Olsen, but not throw.
Not even close, and it's now fourth down, and the Panthers will have to settle for a field goal.
Definitely frustrating after the drive.
Look promising early on after that big pass play from Cam Newton to Curtis Samuel.
Yeah, Greg Olson was open.
Kim Newton, Just not with a good throw views quite a few yards off on that one, and Joey Slye will take the will.
Take the field goal attempt.
32 yard attempt here.
Should be a chip shot.
You never know, and that is up and good right down the middle from Sly, and the Panthers have not in this game back up at three all.
So with 2 52 to go in the first quarter, it's Buccaneers three and Panthers three, and we will stay right here.
It's a 32nd commercial break, so no reason to leave right now.
So no touchdown so far in this 12 field goals coming out of the weather DeLay one for each team, and we're knotted up at three between the Panthers and Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, which was delayed, uh, after six and 1/2 minutes played.
Making that 32 yard field goal attempt as he should, and it's now 3 to 3 in the first quarter.
Just a few minutes left in the first quarter to 52 and now Joey Slye will kick off to the Buccaneers.
The Buccaneers will get the ball for the third time tonight.
Can they go down and get the first touchdown of this game? Will have to wait and see.
Thanks so much for cheating in everybody.
Hope you're enjoying the broadcast here on SportsCastr.
Both of these teams Owen one as they kick off Week two in the 2019 NFL season.
Alright, here we go.
It will be Buccaneers ball.
Or who knows, they could fumble it.
We'll have to wait and see.
Here's the kick.
And that kick from Sly will go into the back of the end zone for yet another touch back and Jameis Winston back on the field for the Buccaneers.
They will take it from the 25.
So Jameis Winston.
His career since 2015 57 games, 79 turnovers.
That's the most in the NFL.
61 interceptions, most in the NFL.
18 fumbles lost.
That's tied for the most in the NFL.
So if you haven't caught on, it's been a rough career for Jameis Winston.
In the NFL, he has 17 games with two or more interceptions.
That's the most in the NFL since 2015.
Hey, he was such a good college player at Florida State.
I remember it, and that had so much hype that will be handed off.
The Panthers doing well with the tackle right there.
It was a handoff by the Buccaneers, but it will only be a gain of two second eight coming right up.
So Luke equally has 100 or more tackles in each of his 1st 7 seasons.
That's truly remarkable.
Looky Clea, of course, A huge defensive presence for the Panthers.
A big reason why their defense is pretty good.
Second and eight for the Bucks.
James went Jamis.
Winston will throw.
That's a quick throat Evans, and he will be tackled right away.
How about that? Every creed with the tackle immediately on like Evans.
But it was a completion, and he is just short of the first down.
It will be third and one for the Buccaneers.
I would expect them to hand off, but we'll see Chris Godwin with three receptions for 51 yards.
Sorry, it was Godwin with the reception.
Not like Evans. I apologize.
Sorry about that.
So Godwin with another reception.
My goodness, it's another penalty on the Buccaneers.
I think it was a delay of game.
I wasn't even paying that much attention.
And that's a killer for the Buccaneers.
It goes from third and 12 now, third and six.
That's a huge difference here.
The Buccaneers will have Thio come up with the whole different play here.
Jamis Winston will throw that is caught and he'll be short of the first down.
My goodness, it was Cameron break with the completion for the Buccaneers.
Bruce Arians is yelling at the ref that he got the first down.
I don't think so.
It will be fourth and one will see it.
The Buccaneers go for it.
We saw the Panthers go for 1/4 and one earlier.
And the Buccaneer stop them.
Well, the Buccaneers go for it now.
No, they will not.
They will not risk it.
They will punch on fourth and one.
Probably the smart decision and Bradley opinion is out there.
The punt off to Ray Ray McCloud.
McCloud, remember? Fumbled on his last return but did recover it.
He bubbles again.
The Panthers recover it my goodness.
It was Dante Jackson who recovered the fumble.
And Ray Ray McCloud is off to a rough start to his night and he got completely hit.
He was lucky Jackson was there on the recovery.
Ray Ray McCloud off to a rough start to his night.
And with 40 seconds to go in the first quarter, the the Panthers, Lucky once against you, recover that.
And he's having a word with one of the coaches on the bench.
He has been locked out so far.
Wow, I don't know.
I mean, it is raining out and stuff, but that's still no excuse at all.
A routine punt return and the Panthers will have it from the 22.
Cam Newton will hand it off, and that's a gain of in the end, about four or five yards from McCaffrey.
Looks like you're gonna be tackled down at the line of scrimmage at first, but made his way after contact to gain a few more yards.
So Cam Newton had one deep pass attempt last week against the Rams in 2018 he had the second lowest deep pass percentage in the NFL at just 7.
2% and he just really didn't like to go along last year or in in the in the first game of the season.
But we've seen him do that, uh, on a couple of occasions to start this game.
It's good to see he needs to do that more.
I think we have a flag here.
Jerome Boger, The referee.
16th season as an official.
It's a penalty on the Buccaneers boards.
So yeah, that deep pass on the last drive from Cam Newton.
Beautiful past occurred a Samuel down the left side and its second and one for the Panthers.
But the clock will run out in this first quarter, so we are through quarter number one on Thursday Night Football.
It's the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Three.
The Carolina Panthers. Three.
I will be back for the second quarter right after this quick break, Junco Anywhere and thanks for tuning in.
Welcome back to the broadcast, everybody.
It's the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
It's second and one for the Panthers from their own 27.
I apologize from their own 32.
They'll hand it off to McCaffrey, and he's in there for a short game but does get the first down new set of downs and the Panthers once again moving the chains.
McCaffrey overall in this one now definitely a, uh, the favorite in the running game for the Panthers candidate going to him almost every time when they run the ball.
So told the arts in this 1/10 of a 64.
Carolina won 12 passing yards.
Tampa Bay 56 Carolina 86 rushing yards.
Tampa Bay eight, Carolina 26.
So there some stats so far for you.
First and 10 Cam Newton will throw it long down the right side, and that is out of play.
Use intending that one.
Thio Curtis Samuel.
But not a good throw in the end by Cam Newton.
Not even giving Samuel a chance.
It was out of bounds with 14 13 to go in the first half in its 2nd 10 for Carolina.
Well, or see, So the panther's huddling up.
We'll see what they come up with here on second down certainly play clock ticking down.
Cam Newton gets it off with about one second handed off to McCaffrey.
He'll go down the right side, and that will be a tackle made from the Buccaneers.
How about that? It was Vita via with the tackle there, but there is a flag on the play, just 53 seconds on the left.
So the penalty is on the Panthers.
It's on Moten holding, So it's a 10 yard penalty in the replay.
Second down, that's a killer for.
The Panthers will now be facing second and 20.
Yeah, pretty obvious there.
Yeah, definitely holding him.
So second and 24 Carolina second and 19.
Actually, they did gain a yard Christian McCaffrey did on the play.
The Panthers, with a lot of work to do if they just want to get a first down, their flags everywhere, whistles going right as that ball was snapped.
It's a false start on the Panthers.
Two plays for a motive.
Taylor Morton, a 2017 2nd round draft pick 64th overall, coming out of Western Michigan, and he's now pushed his team 15 yards back at their own 20.
Facing a second and 24 they will hand it off to McCaffrey down the middle.
He'll spin around and he'll be tackled.
That will be about a gain of five.
It will be third and very long coming up for the Panthers.
Bob Catherine, third in 19.
In fact, Christian McCaffrey with nine touches for 37 total yards so far tonight.
So they're probably the Panthers, probably thinking there on that second down, hoping that McCaffrey would get a big gain there on the ground.
But it wasn't really the case, so you can guarantee that Newton will throw it here.
He'll do a short pass.
The pass is blocked by Anthony Nelson.
The Buccaneers, well done there.
Find Nelson to get his hand to that one, and the Panthers will now punt and the Buccaneer should get in pretty good field position.
My goodness, Anthony Nelson is left hand up there.
He wasn't letting that one get by on one bit so forth in 19 for the Panthers.
Those penalties killing them and Michael pull.
Artie is out there.
The punt off to Bobo Wilson.
All right, here's the punt.
The snap was a little off to the left, and Wilson will take this one at the 21 yard line.
He'll run it out down the right side.
30 35 40 45 50 40 35 he's out of bounds right around the 33 yard line.
Big return from Bobo Wilson, but there is a flag on the play, and you have to think this is on the Buccaneers.
Bruce Aaron's is furious, so it probably is.
Yeah, so it will be a 10 yard penalty.
Yeah, the right call.
So it's Thursday Night football here on SportsCastr.
We got a good one.
Low scoring one, though.
Buccaneers three, Panthers 3 12 32 to go in the first half.
I'll be back with more right after this. Don't go anywhere.
And thanks for tuning in.
So welcome back to the broadcast, Everyone.
It's 3 to 3 between the Buccaneers and Panthers with 12 32 to go in the first half champion with 5.
3 yards per play.
4 Buccaneers now with the ball, and there's a flag on the play before the ball is even hiked.
It's false start on the Buccaneers.
Well, that's not a good way to start off this offensive. Dr.
Yeah, Jemele Dean.
The rookie was the one who committed the penalty on that punt return.
It was a nice return from Bobo Wilson, but it didn't mean anything in the end, All right, this will be handed off by Jameis, Winston and the Panthers reading that one.
Well, it will be a loss of three or four yards.
It was McCoy in with the tackle there.
How about that Well done right there by Gerald McCoy.
And that's a loss of yards that was handed off to Jones.
And he was going nowhere.
Ronald Jones with a loss of yards.
And this makes this offensive drive even tougher.
It's now already second in 17 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It's thrown right away.
It is caught by godson, and that will be a gain of about seven yards.
Nice completion there, but it's still gonna be third and long because of the situation they were in.
Let's see what they market as Gerald McCoy, a six time Pro Bowl selection with the Buccaneers now with the Panther's playing his former team.
It will be third in 10.
Thanks, Michael, for joining the broadcast.
How are you doing tonight? I appreciate you coming into the broadcast.
Hope you're having a great night.
It's 33 between the Buccaneers and Panthers on Thursday Night Football flags flying in all over the place.
Let's see what we got.
It's another false start on the Buccaneers, and Bruce Arians is furious.
Well, he's not exactly showing his anger, but you can tell you can tell he's steaming inside.
It's now third and 15.
Quite a few penalties from both teams in the last few minutes, but especially the Buccaneers lately.
So it's third and really long now for the Buccaneers there over three on third down conversions tonight.
Can they change that? It will be hard to do so.
Jamis Winston backing up around the 10 yard line.
He'll move a little bit forward.
Plenty of time, and he gets sacked.
Wow, Jamis Winston had no one to throw two in Brian Burns.
Ella Panthers coming in with the sack like Evans was making a run.
He was open for a split second.
Meanwhile, godson, he was open as well not sure why.
Yeah, Godson was wide open in the middle of the field.
Winston just must have not seen them. Wow.
And Burns is in there with the sacks of the Buccaneers.
The punt will be around their own five yard line.
Bradley Pinion to Ray Ray McCloud.
McCloud With the rough night.
Can you finally return this one? Yes, he can and will take it out as well.
25 30 35 40 45 50 45 in McCoy with the huge punt return there to make up for his two fumble punt returns to begin the night.
Wow, How about that? Macleod? A 37 yard punt return and the Panthers are in great field position with 9 55 to go in the first half.
Its Buccaneers three, Panthers three And I'll be back in a minute after this commercial break.
I'll have to wrap it up soon, but don't go anywhere.
Thanks for tuning in.
Welcome back to the broadcast.
Everyone off the wrap this off to wrap this up in around a minute.
Um, I do have to get ready for bed.
Unfortunately, I have school tomorrow and I'm just getting pretty tired.
Um, Plus, I got two tests tomorrow side to get.
I have to get some sleep for that could lead.
You have to wake up at around 6 a.m.
How about Ray Ray McCloud with a big punt return with 9 55 to go in the half, the Panthers, suddenly in great field position.
That's from my Cam.
Newton is caught by Greg Olsen and he is tackled by Whitehead around the 26 yard line.
And that's a big game right away for the Carolina Panthers.
How about that? And Winston, all he can do is look oh, uh, and watch the Panthers, this Panthers Dr Unfold from the sideline.
He faked the handoff to McCaffrey.
He was open for the catch and the Panthers making business.
Greg Olsen to receptions for 22 yards.
All right, here we go.
We fake handoff.
Once again, it is incomplete.
It was an attempt to Jarius Wright.
He couldn't come up with the catch, and it's now second intend with 9 11 to go on behalf.
All right, everybody, that will have to do it for my broadcast.
I wish I could be on for the whole game, but I do have school tomorrow.
I'm Samuel Reese here on SportsCastr.
