The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense was largely absent in the first half, but it's come alive now. Jameis Winston is making plays both inside and outside of structure, with a couple of big plays resulting from his scrambles. Here's the latest one, finding Cameron Brate way down the field.

That was a terrific play, giving the Bucs the ball in scoring position, but it came at a cost: Winston looked hurt on the subsequent three plays, and he threw an interception on the third as he was pressured heavily and just threw the ball up into coverage -- something he'd mostly avoided for the rest of the season. With Doug Martin fumbling away the ball on the subsequent possession, the Bucs are now losing a game they should have been leading by two scores.
They still have a quarter to fix that problem, though. And if Winston can pull out a few more plays like that, they'll do exactly that.
