’Noles in the NFL: Week 7

Winston nearly led the Bucs to a signature come-from-behind victory

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

It looked as if Jameis Winston would lead the Buccaneers to a last-minute win over the Bills this weekend. The former Florida State quarterback threw back-to-back touchdown passes in the fourth quarter as the Bucs turned a 20-13 deficit into a 27-20 lead.

But it was all for naught, as a fumble when Tampa Bay was running the clock out turned into a game-winning field goal by Buffalo.

It was unclear if Winston would play in this game, as he sustained a shoulder injury last week. He attempted 44 passes, but his status going forward will be monitored.
