Tampa, FL. -- It was just like old times for Ronde Barber.

Tampa Bay's defense swarmed, the opposing quarterback squirmed, and the Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers 16-10 in their debut under coach Greg Schiano on Sunday.

The lone holdover from the Bucs' Super Bowl champion of 10 years ago had an interception, sack and key stop on Cam Newton as a defense that allowed an NFL-worst 494 points contained the Carolina star to stop a 10-game losing streak that prompted the firing of former coach Raheem Morris.

San Francisco, CA.--
While the Dodgers changed plans Sunday, the Giants stuck to theirs.

The Giants might've had to pitch a shutout to defeat Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers ace who typically blights their bats. Though Los Angeles scratched Kershaw from his expected start, the Giants threw nothing but zeroes anyway.

Barry Zito permitted four hits in 6 1/3 innings and Buster Posey homered as the Giants accelerated their drive toward the postseason with a 4-0 victory, their National League-high 13th shutout.
