The Bucs win over the Panthers on Monday Night Football provided opportunity to show what type of team Tampa Bay has to a national audience.

It also puts the attention – and scrutiny – from national analysts and media members squarely on their shoulders, as head coach Dirk Koetter found out quickly after the Bucs 17-14 win.

“Can I just say something first?” Koetter said. “The worst thing about being on Monday Night Football is, Oh my God, there’s no TV on on Monday and I had to turn it off because, wow! Wow! You have a lot of experts out there on other people’s teams.”

Late in the fourth quarter, tied 14-14 with Carolina, the Buccaneers worked their way down the field with the intentions of taking the lead with either a touchdown or field goal. The Bucs began that drive on their own 20-yard line and took over five minutes off the clock on the drive before stalling out and attempting a 46-yard field goal that rookie Roberto Aguayo missed.
