Winner: Running Back Charles Sims
While not having the best statistical game he had one play that really changed the entire tone of the game for the Bucs. With 14 seconds remaining in the first half Charles Sims caught a little dump off pass by Winston and he made six Atlanta defenders miss as he scampered 23 yards for one of the best touchdowns of Week 1.
Something Lovie Smith was not known for, Dirk Koetter drove it 75 yards in 1:31 to take the lead to end the half and take the lead. The shiftiness of Sims on the play literally made me walk out of the room I was in with excitement. The Bucs have a really nice one two punch out of the backfield this season in Martin and Sims.
