A by-the-numbers look at the Bucs' 17-14 win over the Panthers:

1,064

Days between Bucs appearances on Monday Night Football, which was the league's third-longest absence. In their last appearance, the Bucs, who had lost their first eight games of the season, beat the Dolphins 22-19. The Jaguars last appeared in December 2011, and the Raiders last appeared in September 2013.

1-5

The Bucs' record in night games against NFC South opponents.

4

The Bucs' turnover margin against the Panthers, their best mark of the season. Tampa Bay, however, scored just three points off its takeaways.

33-4

The Bucs' record in games in which they have had a turnover differential of plus-4 or greater.

0-16

Panthers' record in games in which they have had a turnover differential of minus-4 or worse.

1

Game this season — Monday night's victory — in which Jameis Winston has not turned the ball over, though he was fortunate the Bucs recovered his fumble and the Panthers dropped a potential interception.

50

Roberto Aguayo's field goal percentage (4 of 8) through five games. Kyle Brindza's field goal percentage (6 of 12) through four games last season: 50.

101

Jacquizz Rodgers' rushing yards, a career high for the backup who started for the Bucs on Monday because of injuries to Doug Martin and Charles Sims. His 30 carries also were a career high. He rushed 13 times in the first quarter.

181

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen's receiving yards, a career high. In the last two games in which Derek Anderson started in place of Cam Newton — both of which were against the Bucs in 2014 — he caught 18 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown.
