7:54 in the 1st qtr, 2nd and 11 from the Panther 29 Newton stands in the packet but then break contain and turns on the jets like no other QB in the NFL can. Yet another fantastic down field block by Steve Smith gives Newton the edge but only a shoestring tackle saves a sure TD:
The Panthers would score to take a 7-3 lead two plays later.
10:34 in 2nd qtr, 2nd and 10 from the Panther 4 the bowling ball with great hands named Mike Tolbert plucks the shovel pass out of the air and steamrolls two Buc defenders for extra yards.
Tolbert's jaunt put the Panthers in FG range where they would shortly expand their lead to 10-3.
10:58 in 3rd qtr, 1st and 10 from the TB 36 - Ted Ginn burns down Revis Island with a sneaky double move
This TD extended the Panthers lead to 24-6 and essentially put the game out of reach. It also had to deflate whatever energy the Bucs defense may have had at that point seeing their top DB get toasted like that.
6:08 in 4th qtr, 3rd and 7 from the TB 23 the 'Next Man Up' is unknown DE Wes Horton stunts outside in and blows past PB guard Davin Joseph for a drive killing sack.
Give props to DT Kawann Short for occupying two blockers and opening the path for the sack. Horton would later add another sack on the Bucs next possession to force a desperate and unsuccessful 4th down attempt.
