The Bucs opened their season on Sunday against the San Francisco where they fell by a final score of 31-17. In a game where the defense truly appeared to have turned a corner, the offense largely fell flat and perhaps no one led that theme more than quarterback Jameis Winston.
QB Jameis Winston
Winston failed to find a rhythm and look comfortable at any point in the game. He finished the game with three interceptions, two of them being returned for touchdowns, but also threw a duck into the hands of Kwon Alexander early that was dropped, and threw another pass right at a defender when going for it on 4th-and-goal from the two-yard line. Just north of the two minute warning, trailing by six, the Bucs took over at their own 20-yard line with a chance to drive down the field and win the game. Winston was pressured on the first play of the drive and lobbed a ball into the hands of Ahkello Witherspoon who returned the ball for a touchdown and effectively sealed the game for the 49ers.
