A few years ago, this would have seemed unthinkable, but the toll of injuries and the wear and tear from his physical style of play have worn the former MVP down so much, that the last time we saw him on the field, he looked a shell of his old self.
With the completion of the NCAA football regular season, the Bucs are one of six teams to play on Saturday this week. The game time is set for 1:00 P.M. EST, and should prove to be a juicy matchup for both offenses assuming the weather holds up. Tampa Bay and Houston both rank in the bottom five of all NFL teams for passing yards allowed, however, Houston has been much better to limiting teams in the red zone as they have allowed 330 total points (19th) this season compared to Tampa Bay’s 395 (30th). This game clearly features a pair of the NFL weaker defenses, and should provide for plenty of offense.
We are nearing the end of Fantasy Football, and with only two weeks left, every game has to be strategic and flawless. This week, the Bucs (6-7) are playing the Detroit Lions (3-9-1). You can anticipate to see some players explode this week from the Bucs based on the fact that the Lions lost the last six games and the Bucs are wanting to extend their winning streak to four. Now to the specifics…
When light starts to dim – as it already is – on the 2019 NFL season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one big question to address – will they bring back franchise leader Jameis Winston? Winston, who is 25 years young, had the most famous Jameis type performance perhaps he ever could of had last week in a 38-35 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Winston launched the ball through the air to the tune of 456 passing yards, and 5 total touchdowns, including one on the ground. Winston also threw for 3 interceptions and battled a thumb injury which caused him to miss some of the game. Some may ask, what makes a 3 turnover performance so special?
Jameis Winston (QB) has some impressive stats that you cannot ignore in the 2019 season. He has the third most passing attempts (467) and the 6th most completions (297). His passing completion percentage is 45/50 in the league (60.2%), however, with his numbers, he has more potential than other quarterbacks in the league. Winston has the sixth most passing attempts per game, averaging 38.9. Winston has the second most passing yards this season, at 3,659, only trailing behind Dak Prescott. Winston averages 304.9 passing yards per game, again with the third spot on the season. Winston is tied for sixth most passing touchdowns (22) with Aaron Rodgers. The positive ranking above from Winston outweighs his terrible interception record; the most in the league at 20.
It was a feel good day for Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a battle for Florida, as they rolled the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-11. Jameis Winston had a near flawless game, only losing a ball on a fumble created by a Ronald Jones blocking mishap. Todd Bowles led the defensive unit to a massive game, causing the Jaguars to change quarterbacks.
