VIDEO: Jameis Winston improvisation magic still works

Mike Evans loves it when this happens.

Jameis Winston has some magical improvisational abilities. When things breaks down, he often finds ways some explosive plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So he did exactly that against the New York Giants today.

Yup, classic Jameis: dancing around (somewhat unnecessarily in this case), waiting for Mike Evans to come open deep, and then finding him for the big play.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a touchdown: Mike Evans was down a the one-yard line, and the Bucs couldn’t punch it in after that. In part because Dirk Koetter hates quarterback sneaks with a passion, in part because he’s way too enamored with short-yardage toss plays.

Winston’s having a pretty good game so far, anyway: 11/20 for 190 yards and two touchdowns with no sacks or turnovers. If he keeps that up, the Bucs should win comfortably.
