Winston throws late TD pass, Buccaneers beat Saints 31-24

01 January, 2018, 03:56 | Author: Kristen Ingram

Jameis Winston threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chris Godwin with 9 seconds left, rallying the Bucs to a 31-24 win against the New Orleans Saints. It drove 92 yards in 13 plays and took up almost seven minutes for a touchdown and 24-20 lead with 7:07 to go in the fourth quarter at Raymond James Stadium. Saints safety Marcus Williams intercepted Winston at the Saints' 35 to set up the drive.

The only reason the Saints still won the division is because Carolina lost at Atlanta.

The Bucs would strike again a couple drives later as Winston got the touchdown on a keeper and great second effort to break the plane.

The records continue to stack up for the New Orleans Saints running backs.

Josh Robinson stripped the ball out of Lewis' arm just as he was about to hit the ground.

Kamara topped 1,500 yards in impressive fashion, hauling a 40-yard pass from Drew Brees. Isaiah Johnson scooped up the loose ball and returned it 7 yards for a touchdown and a 20-17 lead with 14:04 left.

The Saints went up, 14-7, on a 7-yard touchdown run by Kamara to close a 65-yard drive in six plays.

Tampa Bay had a chance to tie the game before the half, but after Winstons 1-yard touchdown run, Murray missed the extra point, giving the Saints a 14-13 halftime lead.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will end the 2017 season at home Sunday afternoon when they take on the New Orleans Saints.

The Bucs came up empty on their next drive but special teams would come up huge as Tampa Bay punted the ball away.
