NFC South Roundup Week 2: Buccaneers the lone winners?

Over the years, the Buccaneers have gotten used to being the NFC South’s lone losers in a given week, but being the lone winners? That doesn’t happen all that often, does it? Well, it happened this week, with Tampa Bay having a triumphant return to Raymond James Stadium, earning a 31-17 victory over Carolina to pull its record even to 1-1. It was still far from an ideal performance for the Bucs, as they once led 21-0 and eventually needed to make some big plays just to hang on. But the thing was, they did manage to close the game out.
