On Sunday Afternoon the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won 4 straight, 5 out of 6 and are now 7-7 on the 2019 season with two more games left as the Buccaneers defeated the Detroit Lions 38-17.
Jameis Winston has set an NFL Record becoming the ONLY QB in NFL History to throw back to back 450+ yard passing games, Winston has broken his own Single Season Touchdown record which is now 30 TD’s. Winston finished 28/42 459 passing yards, 4/1 TD-INT ratio.
Buccaneers jumped out to an early 21-0 lead after another Winston Interception that like last week versus the Indianapolis Colts, the Lions picked off Winston early and was in just the right spot to make the play but once again it wouldn’t matter in this game as the Lions went three & out.
Bucs WR’s had a game today as Winston threw to every reciever option on this team as Chris Godwin had 5 catches for 121 yards before exiting the game in the third quarter with a Hamstring Injury, WR Breshad Perriman with 5 catches for 113 yards and three touchdowns.
Today was a career day for WR Scotty Miller grabbed his first career NFL Touchdown with 3 grabs for 50 yards, Cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting with his dagger that finished off the Lions with his first interception for a touchdown in his hometown of Detroit and where his College career was in Central Michigan.
But the biggest storyline of the day was Buccaneers Linebacker Shaquil Barrett tying former Buccaneers Hall of Famer Warren Sapp’s Single Season Sack Record and will have a chance to break that record at home on Saturday as the Buccaneers will face the Houston Texans at 1pm in Raymond James Stadium.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now 7-7 on the season with a very good chance to end the season at 9-7 or very least at 8-8 with a winning record for the first time since 2016, when the Bucs won out the last 5 games to finish 9-7 and this Bucs team will be able to win six straight and six out of last seven games to end the season with some optimism for the 2020 season to start the new decade off right with playoff football.
