NFL: Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider Nation! Welcome to Week 2 of the NFL season. Tonight we’ve got an NFC South matchup between the Panthers and the Buccaneers. Both these teams are 0-1, as the Panthers lost to the defending NFC champion Rams and the Bucs messed their pants at home against the 49ers last weekend.

Two former first overall picks are at QB in this game. Cam Newton is always a threat to run, but he will also dump off to running back extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey, who is sure to pile up the yards against a Bucs defense which could barely slow an anemic Niners offense.

Jameis Winston was erratic at best against the Niners, throwing picks and putting his team in a tough spot. Can he rebound against a division foe?

Find out tonight at 5:20 Pacific on NFL Network. Enjoy the game!
