Chris Weinke was ready when Jake Delhomme was woozy. Playing in his first game since 2002, Weinke threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Proehl with 32 seconds left to give the Carolina Panthers a 21-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Weinke relieved Delhomme, who was knocked out of the game when he slid and was crushed by safety Kenoy Kennedy.

"It's up there with Billy 'White Shoes' Johnson," said Sanders, who is here to work the CBS Super Bowl pregame show Sunday. "You know why it is such a great nickname? Because it defined his game."

Times staff writer Sam Farmer poses the big questions as each team readies for training camp: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could use some good news after a 3-13 season, and here's some: Every year since the NFL realigned its divisions in 2002, the team that finished last in the NFC South made the playoffs the following year. In that sense, there's hope for the Buccaneers. Now, the bad news for the Bucs: Things aren't getting any easier in the division.
