A quietly difficult Week 10 matchup with the Carolina Panthers just got a whole lot tougher for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team was initially scheduled to land in Charlotte at 4:15 p.m. yesterday, but the flight was delayed significantly.

After seven-plus hours of delays, the Bucs didn't actually land until around 11:15 p.m. last night.

It's impossible to know how much (or if at all) this will impact the Buccaneers on Sunday. But it certainly isn't a good sign. At the very least, the team's schedule has been thrown off pretty significantly.

Of course, it could also be a galvanizing event for the team. Tom Brady has been known to turn almost anything into bulletin board material, so the team should be able to rely on the GOAT's 20-plus years of experience to rally the offense.

Even with the delays, Tampa Bay is a hefty 5.5-point road favorite over Carolina in FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 10 NFL odds.
