Jameis Winston named FedEx Air Player of the Week

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Jameis Winston has won two awards for his week one performance against the Atlanta Falcons. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award earlier this week, and has now been named the FedEx Air Player of the Week Award.

Winston completed 23 of 32 passes for 281 yards, four touchdowns and one interception with no sacks. If you're thinking "wait didn't he have one more attempt before?" then yes, you're right. But one of those attempts got nullified by penalty, something the league didn't correct until yesterday.

This is the second time he's won this award. He's also the first Bucs quarterback to win both the Air Player of the Week and the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award in the same week.

It's another affirmation of Winston's quality play last Sunday. Here's to hoping he can keep that up this Sunday, and the rest of the season. The Bucs could use it.
