  • NFL Power Rankings: Panthers rise entering Week 17

That's according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Concluding a three game December home stand, the Carolina Panthers finished by defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 22-19 on Christmas Eve.

It will be Koetter's third year as head coach for the Bucs. Tampa is expected to fire Dirk Koetter next week and Gruden is their top candidate replace him.

Jackson has been more productive than Baker has been so far, catching 50 passes for 668 yards and three touchdowns, but he's managed just 47.7 yards per game, the lowest of his career. The recent surge has elevated his overall rating (96.5), completion percentage (65.0) and yards per attempt (8.0) to easily the highest marks in his three National Football League seasons. That's debatable, from our perspective, as Winston seems like the same mistake-prone passer he was when he came out of Florida State a few years back.

Koetter went 9-7 in his first year as head coach but has struggled this year, winning just four games heading into the final game of the season on Sunday. The Bucs have some young playmakers we'd expect to be featured more next season, including wideout Chris Godwin, tight end O.J. Howard and running back Peyton Barber.

Koetter was the Buccaneers' offensive coordinator in 2015.
