Are the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rivals?

Yes, the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are rivals in the NFL. Their rivalry was born in 2002 when both teams became members of the newly formed NFC South division. Though their rivalry is relatively young, it is especially competitive, with the all-time series standing at 25-20 favoring the Panthers entering 2023.

Who are the Carolina Panthers’ Biggest Rivals?

Other than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Carolina Panthers share rivalries in the NFC South with the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons. Due to the young age of their division, these teams battle hard over supremacy of the South. Outside of their division, the Panthers maintain rivalries with the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals from the NFC West.

Who are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Biggest Rivals?

Besides the Carolina Panthers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also have divisional rivalries with the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. These rivalries only intensified after Tom Brady signed with the Buccaneers in 2020 and led them to a Super Bowl victory in 2021.

Game Results Between the Buccaneers & Panthers

When the Carolina Panthers joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1995, they were in a different division than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so the teams played only three times between 1995 and 2002, with the Buccaneers holding a slight edge at 2-1 in the series. Things ramped up quickly, however, when both teams joined the NFC South in 2002. Since then, the teams have gone back and forth; the Buccaneers swept the Panthers in the 2002 season, going on to win the Super Bowl that year, but the Panthers got revenge the following year, sweeping the Bucs and going on to eventually lose the Super Bowl.

Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers History

The rivalry between the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a relatively new one, dating back to 2002, when both teams became a part of the newly formed NFC South. In those first two seasons, each team traded dominance, first with a Buccaneers sweep and eventual Super Bowl win in 2002, followed by a Panthers sweep and eventual Super Bowl loss the following year. Despite its youth, the Panthers vs. Bucs rivalry is fierce and widely considered one of the most competitive and evenly spread in the NFL.

The rivalry between the Panthers and Buccaneers intensified in the late 2000s and early 2010s, with both teams competing for supremacy in the NFC South. Between 2009 and 2013 the teams again traded alternating sweeps. In 2011, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton set the NFL single season rushing touchdown record against the Buccaneers in their first matchup of the season, then went on to set the NFL rookie passing yards record in a dominant victory over the Buccaneers later that same season. In total, the Panthers have swept the Buccaneers in nine seasons since 2002, and the Buccaneers have returned the favor with six seasonal sweeps of their own, most recently in 2020 and 2021 under quarterback Tom Brady.

Off the field, the rivalry between the Panthers and Buccaneers is fueled by the proximity of the two teams. Charlotte and Tampa Bay are just over 600 miles apart, and many fans of both teams live in the same region.
