A far cry from last years Buccaneers vs Saints….
Jameis Winston had a much better game against the Saints Sunday. Winston threw for 207 yards and a TD and ran one in for TD. The best news of all: Jameis did not throw 1 INT in this game and recorded a QB rating of 114.6. Running back Doug Martin added 78 rushing yards to his tally this week but did not get into the end zone Sunday. The Tampa 2 defense stood strong against the Saints on Sunday, picking off the veteran Drew Brees once and holding him to one TD pass.
Jameis Winston tells Nola.com “It is a huge win for our entire organization. Last year we only had two wins, so with this one we are halfway there already. So today was very important – to get a victory, on the road, in the division. It is huge for us.”
