Tom Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) will travel to Bank of America Stadium on Sunday to take on the Carolina Panthers (2-7).

Tampa is still in the thick of things in the NFC, while the Panthers are trying to get a winning streak going.

Carolina is one and four at home this season, but Bucs’ head coach Greg Schiano says this is a tough defense to go up against.

“It’s going to be a challenge,” said Schiano.  “A lot of it is just their d-lineman outworking other people’s o-lineman.”

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is well aware of the Tampa corners that he will be looking down the field at.

“We’re facing a very good defense, led by Ronde Barber,” said Newton.  “They’re leading the league on their defense.”

The Buccaneers are 2-2 on the road this season.
