The New England Patriots have turned their focus towards the Cincinnati Bengals, but there is one final game in week 5 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers. Kick off is at 8:30 PM EST on ESPN.

This game does not affect the Patriots in any way in the standings. The Panthers are 6-point favorites, despite cutting a starting cornerback and not having QB Cam Newton, OT Michael Oher, and RB Jonathan Stewart this week.
