The Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Raymond James Stadium.

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (6-9): Cam Newton missed the team’s first matchup of the season with a concussion, leaving Derek Anderson under center. Newton is once again on the injury report with a shoulder issue but is expected to play, as is tight end Greg Olsen (elbow), who also missed practice time during the week. The Panthers, however, won’t have All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly, who will sit out his sixth straight game after suffering a concussion on Nov. 17, and wide receiver Devin Funchess, who was placed on injured reserve.

ABOUT THE BUCS (8-7): Martin, who was a Pro Bowl selection last season, left the team to enter a drug treatment program and is not the only back who will miss Sunday’s game. Charles Sims was placed on the injured reserve with a pectoral injury, leaving Jacquizz Rodgers, who leads the team with 485 yards on 112 carries with two touchdowns, as the lead back. Tight end Cameron Brate (57 receptions, 661 yards, 8 touchdowns), in the midst of a breakout season, also is out with a back injury.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Buccaneers listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total is sitting at 45.5 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter Week 17 with rail-slim chances of earning a playoff berth and without their top running back. Doug Martin will miss Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers to serve the first of his four-game suspension for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

The Bucs not only need to beat the Panthers to gain their first playoff berth since 2007, but also need wins by the Lions, Titans, Colts, Eagles and 49ers and Washington’s second tie of the season. They have no one to blame but themselves for their dire situation after dropping back-to-back games, including a crushing setback at New Orleans last week when Jameis Winston threw two costly interceptions leading to Saints points in the 31-24 setback. Earlier in the season, Tampa Bay snapped a six-game losing streak in the series when Roberto Aguayo kicked a 38-yard field goal as time expired in the 17-14 victory. The Panthers, who reached the Super Bowl last season, have long since been eliminated from playoff consideration.

Last time out for Tampa Bay, they were a 31-24 loser as they battled the Saints on the road. The Buccaneers failed to cover in the match as a +3-point underdog, while 55 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Panthers were a 33-16 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Falcons. They failed to cover the +3-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (49) made winners of OVER bettors.
