The Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked to be having their way against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. With quarterback Cam Newton struggling, the Bucs looked to add onto their 17-12 lead. However, already pinned inside their own five-yard line, they dealt a bad hand. After Jameis Winston handed the ball off to running back Peyton Barber, Panthers stud linebacker Luke Kuechly was right in his grill, bringing him down inside the end zone for the safety.

Carolina cut their deficit to just a field goal, and it's all thanks to the defensive prowess of Kuechly.
