Tampa Bay claimed their first win of the NFL season, holding Carolina's final drive to maintain.
With time running out between the Panthers and the NFC South rivals trailing by six Carolina was directed by Cam Newton in a drill down the area.
They seemed to be heading for a first win of this season, or overtime, since they reached the redzone, but the Buccaneers came up with a late goal-line rack to make sure Newton, despite 324 passing yards, was held without a touchdown for the second consecutive week.
Lightning in the field meant the match was delayed for 25 minutes in the first quarter, but the Bucs held on to provide new head coach Bruce Arians since taking charge at the 38, his first victory
While Jameis Winston threw for 208 yards as Tampa Bay held Newton in check if it mattered most, the Panthers quarterback also came up with another fumble since he suffered an eighth defeat in 47, peyton Barber ran for 82 yards and a 16-yard touchdown.
The Panthers needed four field goals from Matt Gay, along with a Barber security, to rack their 14 points up.
Chris Godwin was the safety blanket of Winston, the receiver scored the game's only touchdown and hauled in eight catches for 121 yards since the Bucs won despite turning just two of 12 first downs.
It had been another night of frustration, culminating in the drive that fell short despite breaks. After he took a snap from the wildcat creation to carry over on downs on fourth down play against the two, Christian McCaffrey stopped.
The Buccaneers (1-1) got plenty of pressure on Newton together with three sacks coming from Shaquil Barrett. Once he awakened 209 yards and 2 touchdowns in the season-opener from the Los Angeles 27, they held McCaffrey to 53 total yards from scrimmage.
Up - The two teams get a protracted break the Buccaneers are when they face the New York Giants, when they host the Arizona Cardinals, while Carolina chase their first success.
