Tampa Bay Buccaneers sticking with Ryan Fitzpatrick as starting quarterback

Ryan Fitzpatrick's four touchdown passes weren't enough to overcome another terrible defensive performance that saw the Bucs allow the Panthers to break a franchise record with 35 first-half points. If he struggles then uncertainty will continue to swirl around the quarterback position in Tampa Bay.

"When they're focused, there are no young players that I wouldn't put those guys up against in this league because they have the physicality, the playmaking ability, and the want-to", quarterback Cam Newton said of the team's young dynamic duo. "On the one where we were in a two-back formation, one of our linemen made a call he shouldn't have made and that threw everybody off".

Koetter said Addison was aided by miscommunication by the Tampa Bay offense. "We really didn't get much going". Speedy rookie Donte Jackson will be matched up with Desean Jackson while James Bradberry will try to stifle Mike Evans.

Twitter ripped Fitzpatrick apart for the horribly errant pass.

The ensuing possession would end in a 30-yard Adam Humphries touchdown to pull the Bucs within seven.

Kyrie Irving throws ball into stands, blasts Jamal Murray for chasing points
He was the primary concern tonight and he made us pay in certain instances of making some tough shots and some tough layups. But not everyone was happy with that last three-point bid, taken when the outcome of the game was already determined.

"We were playing with momentum and when you're playing like that, we have a lot of juice coming our way so it does make it very fun", McCaffrey said. The thing I think about in our huddle is there is always that optimism and confidence, no matter who we are playing, no matter what the score is, winning or losing, we know what we are capable of. "Even after the pick, he wasn't shaken up at all".

They face the opposite end of the spectrum this Sunday as the Bucs enter the game ranked 29th in total defense and 31st in passing defense.

"The talent level we have on this team is extremely scary", Newton said.

A common denominator in Tampa Bay's three victories is the Bucs have played mostly with the lead and found a way to hold off New Orleans, Philadelphia and Cleveland late. The veteran was then tabbed to start over Winston when the team was topped 42-28 by the Panthers on Sunday. "We can't keep digging ourselves into these holes", Fitzpatrick said. "That's definitely the pattern that we're in".

Newton said that when they got the ball back only up a score after being up 28, there was no panic from his team. "If I knew one thing to fix it I'd do it right now, but I don't know what that is".
