Jameis Winston

Playing with a broken thumb didn’t stop Winston from putting up ridiculous numbers for a second straight week, finishing 28/42 for 458 yards, 4 touchdowns, and an interception.

Stringing together some great performances, Winston has all but guaranteed he will be back in Tampa next year. He now leads the league in passing by a sizable margin and broke a couple records in the process:

Here’s a look at every touchdown pass Winston threw against the Lions:

Nigel Bradham

Bradham has a nice day with 3 tackles (1 solo) and a scoop and score as time expired that decided the outcome of a lot of bets:

Auden Tate

Unfortunately a promising season from Tate was cut short due to a knee injury he sustained last week, landing him on Injured Reserve:

However, he was still there supporting his teammates:

Dalvin Cook

After bouncing back from injury last week, Cook would once again exit the game early with a shoulder injury:

Derwin James

Despite his team’s loss, James led the defense with 9 tackles( 6 solo):

Terrence Brooks

Brooks would record 4 tackles (2 solo) in a win over the Bengals on Sunday after taking part in a Salvation Army holiday party for 250 children earlier in the week:

Dustin Hopkins

Hopkins was perfect on the day going 2/2 on field goals, making good from 43-yards and 53-yards. He also was 3/3 on extra points. Hopkins’ 53-yarder saw him edge closer to a franchise record:

Other Notable Statlines

Josh Sweat, Philadelphia Eagles: Had 2 solo tackles and a TFL.

Ronald Darby, Philadelphia Eagles: Had 2 tackles (1 solo) and a pass defended.
