It wasn’t the busiest weekend for ’Noles in the NFL with a lot of former Seminoles enjoying a bye week this week, but there were still plenty of notable highlights to discuss, so let’s jump in.
Winston had a stellar outing in which he threw for 335 yards and two touchdowns.
Just how the drew it up:

And a great play from Winston to get out of the pocket and find his top target on the day, Mike Evans:

Unfortunately for Winston and the Buccaneers, Russell Wilson did Russell Wilson things, throwing for 5 touchdowns including and overtime game-winner and Tampa Bay fell to 2-6.
Goldman made the most of his two solo tackles by getting to Carson Wentz for a sack on an early 3rd and Goal:

Even in a “quiet” game for the NFL’s leading rusher, Cook still went for over 100 yards from scrimmage with 71 yards rushing on 21 carries and another 45 yards receiving on 4 catches.
Before the game, Phil Simms showed Cook some love, naming him his midseason MVP:

Nnadi is really coming into his own as a pro and was a wrecking ball in the middle of Kansas City’s defensive line in his team’s win on Sunday. Nnadi tallied 6 tackles (2 solo) and contributed heavily to slowing down his former teammate Dalvin Cook.
Nnadi spoke to the media about the defensive line’s game plan for slowing down Cook and an explosive Minnesota run game:
