Monday Night Football tonight features two NFC South teams trying to find their way... The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a three game losing streak after starting the season 1-0, and the Carolina Panthers (also 1-3) will be without their starting quarterback Cam Newton (concussion).

Give the home team the nod in this one, but right now, the division-leading Atlanta Falcons likely aren’t concerned with either club right now. The Falcons are in solid shape in the NFC South, currently sitting at 4-1 and on a four game winning streak.

Can backup quarterback Derek Anderson lead his Panthers to a victory, or will Jameis Winston have more support and give the Panthers their third straight loss? Anderson is a capable backup, and moved the offense last week when he was thrust into the game for an injured Newton.

This is your Panthers versus Buccaneers Monday Night Football Open Thread... Have fun!
