Aguayo’s kick wins it for Bucs
Roberto Aguayo kicked a 38-yard field goal as time expired, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Carolina Panthers, 17-14, on Monday night.
Jameis Winston was 18 of 30 for 219 yards and a touchdown, and led a 66yard drive to get the visiting Buccaneers (2-3) into field goal range. A 15-yard facemask penalty on Kony Ealy hurt the Panthers.
The Panthers turned the ball over four times, three by Derek Anderson, who was filling in for the concussed Cam Newton.
Greg Olsen had a careerhigh 181 yards receiving on nine catches and Cameron Artis-Payne ran for two touchdowns for the Panthers (1-4). Kubiak ordered to miss Thursday: Joe DeCamillis stepped up to the podium after Broncos general manager John Elway named him interim head coach and was instantly met with a welcome-to-the-show question: “Who’s your quarterback?”
The Broncos special teams coordinator dodged the inquiry, declining to say whether Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch would start Thursday night against the Chargers.
Elway tabbed DeCamillis after doctors ordered coach Gary Kubiak to take a week off after experiencing a “complex migraine condition” shortly after the Broncos suffered their first loss of the season.
Kubiak, 55, was transported to the hospital by an ambulance after experiencing flu-like symptoms. He was kept overnight and doctors determined he had what the team termed a “complex migraine condition” that caused lethargy.
Kubiak had a health scare in 2013 when he was coach of the Texans, suffering a “mini-stroke” and collapsing at halftime of a game against the Colts.

Coach Jay Gruden said the players were “first class” to help.
“A lot of guys want to stay home and play video games or what have you and spend time with their families, but to go to help others in need is big time,” Gruden said. “Talks about their character, and I’m proud to be their coach when you see guys do things like that.” Extra points: Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is expected to pass concussion protocol Tuesday morning, coach Bruce Arians said. … Vikings OL Andre Smith will have surgery on his triceps muscle and will be placed on injured reserve. … The Bills activated OL Seantrel Henderson after he completed a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. … Dolphins coach Adam Gase said rookie OL Laremy Tunsil was unable to play Sunday because he hurt his ankle in the shower hours before kickoff.
