Bucs QB Jameis Winston, WR Mike Evans set National Football League records in win

01 January, 2018, 04:57 | Author: Alyssa Little

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Chris Godwin with nine seconds remaining - capping a desperation 95-yard drive with no timeouts - to produce a 31-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

But the final drive was the most disturbing, since the Saints had the Bucs down to a fourth-and-10 from their own 5-yard line before allowing them to march all the way down the field for the game-winning score.

New Orleans struggled at times in every unit. Isaiah Johnson recovered it and returned it for a 7-yard touchdown. Congratulations to Tampa, it was an impressive two-minute drive.

Kamara, who's teamed with Mark Ingram to give New Orleans the only tandem in National Football League history 1,500-plus scrimmage yards and more than 10 TDs in the same season, wiped out an early 7-0 deficit with his kickoff return. Ingram and Kamara had already combined for 182 yards from scrimmage.

The Saints failed on an attempted fake field goal when kicker Wil Lutz was tackled one yard short of the first down.

Godwin has seven receptions for 111 yards.

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan picked up his 13th sack of the season, on a play that ended the first half.

The Buccaneers drove 75 yards in 12 plays to cut it to 14-13 at the 5:50 mark of the second quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run by Winston on third-and-goal. The Saints stopped one Tampa drive when rookie safety Marcus Williams made his third interception of the season and on another when linebacker Craig Robertson picked off Winston.
