Buccaneers-Panthers: A by-the-numbers look at Tampa Bay’s 22-19 loss

Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the Bucs’ 22-19 loss to the Panthers on Sunday:

2-7

The Bucs’ record in one-score games. They’ve lost three straight games by three points.

367

Jameis Winston’s passing yards Sunday.

5

Times he has passed for at least 300 yards in a game this season, a team record.

1-4

The Bucs’ record this season when Winston has passed for at least 300 yards. They are 3-7 since 2015.

131.1

Winston’s quarterback rating Sunday. The Bucs have lost both games this season in which Winston earned a rating of 130 or better. (Fumbles do not affect quarterback rating.)

17

Consecutive games the Bucs had won before this season when their quarterback had earned a rating of 130 or better.

3

Fumbles Winston lost Sunday. He didn’t commit any turnovers in last week’s loss to the Falcons.

68

Number of touchdown passes Winston has thrown in his career, tying him with Dan Marino for most before turning 24 years old. Marino did it in 28 games; Winston in 44.

15

Quarterbacks who have thrown more touchdown passes than Winston in their first 44 games. Among them: Marino and Kurt Warner. Also: Jeff Garcia and Andy Dalton.

5

Bucs pass plays of at least 25 yards. They had 21 in their previous 14 games.

107

Receiving yards for Mike Evans, his first 100-yard receiving game this season and the team’s second (DeSean Jackson had 106 in Week 4).

4

Games last season in which Evans gained 100 receiving yards.

4,524

Career receiving yards for Evans. He has the seventh-most receiving yards in a player’s first four seasons. (Pending the outcome of the Steelers-Texans game. Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins has 4,487.)

70

Yards receiver Chris Godwin gained on a second-quarter pass. It was the longest play of the season for the Bucs and their longest pass play since November 2013.

66

Bucs rushing yards, 34 of which came on a Peyton Barber run in the first quarter.

52

Cam Newton’s rushing yards for the Panthers.

4,261

Newton’s career rushing yards. He passed Steve Young on Sunday to take third place among quarterbacks. Only Michael Vick (6,109) and Randall Cunningham (4,928) gained more.
