QB Jameis Winston
Don’t worry, the offensive line deserves a ton blame for Sunday’s putrid loss to the Saints, but Winston had one of the worst performances in his entire career. He completed 47.3 percent of his passes, the second-lowest total of his career.
Again, Winston was on the run on Sunday, but he did miss some makeable throws. His deep ball accuracy continues to be a question. If that doesn’t improve, defenses will continue to press Chris Godwin and Mike Evans.
On the plus side, he didn’t force many throws. His only interception came on the final play of the game. This was the first significant bump in the road for Winston in his second stint as starting quarterback.
WR Chris Godwin
Last week, Chris Godwin had an impressive five catch, 101-yard performance against the Panthers.
One week later, Eli Apple made Godwin disappear. Winston targeted Godwin 10 times, but he only came down with one pass for 10 yards. Typically, Apple struggles in coverage, but he had one of his best games this week.
Godwin has proven to be a legitimate two receiver, but he hasn’t gotten consistent attention so far this season. Now that DeSean Jackson has missed the past couple of games, opposing defenses will focus on him more.
