The Bucs were leading 20-17 halfway through the third quarter when the Panthers downed a punt at the 2-yard line. Jones would run through the pack on the first play of the drive and carry the ball all the way for a touchdown, increasing Tampa Bay’s lead to nine points.
Jones became the fourth player with the third-longest run in NFL history.
That run was only tied in 2018 by the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry.
Jones is on track to have a better season than 2019. He’s totaled 538 rushing yards on 120 carries and four touchdowns in nine games.
The Bucs are hoping to wash away the memory of Week 9’s blowout loss against the New Orleans Saints while the Panthers are looking to improve their 3-6 record.
