Jameis Winston plays lights out
Speaking of Winston, if he can put it all together in the final five weeks of the season, the Bucs have a legitimate chance. It’s a lot to ask of him, but that will be what it takes to keep the season alive.
Winston’s shown signs of improvement since taking back the starting job. He doesn’t force as many throws and doesn’t abandon the pocket as quickly as he did in the past.
Since his return in Week 10, Winston has thrown for 255.3 yards per game, completing 72.6 percent of his passes to go along with six touchdowns compared to one interception.
For years, Bucs fans have waited desperately for Winston to show signs of improvement. The Tampa Bay faithful can’t ask for much more than what he has provided.
It’s too early to tell if he has turned the corner. But it will need to happen now if Tampa Bay has any shot at the postseason.
