Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel each scored two touchdowns and the Carolina Panthers benefited from six Jameis Winston turnovers in a 37-26 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Carolina avenged a September loss to Tampa Bay and pushed quarterback Kyle Allen's record to 5-0 all-time as a starter.

Allen threw for two touchdowns, completing 20 of 32 passes for 227 yards without an interception.

Carolina (4-2) has won four straight games with Allen as the quarterback since losing at home to the Buccaneers (2-4) in Week 2.

Winston was 30-for-54 with 400 yards, but he was intercepted five times and lost a fumble. He was sacked seven times.

The Buccaneers also had a turnover on a muffed punt, leading to a fourth-quarter field goal for Carolina.

McCaffrey, a running back who has been one of the NFL's most productive players this year, was limited to 31 rushing yards and 26 receiving yards. He caught a 25-yard touchdown pass.

The Panthers were playing in their first international game, while the Buccaneers fell to 0-3 all-time in London.

Samuel, a receiver, scored on a third-quarter run from 8 yards out one play after linebacker Luke Kuechly's interception and 25-yard return to give the Panthers a 27-7 lead.

Matt Gay connected on a 54-yard field goal for the Buccaneers, closing the gap to 27-10.

Then on the first play of the fourth quarter, Allen connected with Samuel on the side of the end zone for a 13-yard play and another touchdown.

Down 37-26, Tampa Bay had a chance with less than three minutes to play, but Winston's pass was intercepted by Ross Cockrell. James Bradberry picked off Winston for the second time with 16 seconds to play.

Buccaneers receiver Chris Godwin caught 10 passes for 151 yards.

Earlier, Carolina scored the first points on Joey Slye's 49-yard field goal after Bradberry picked off Winston. The Panthers lost 2 yards on the possession, but were still in position for the points.

Carolina went 99 yards later in the quarter, scoring on McCaffrey's 1-yard fourth-down run to conclude a 12-play march.
