STATEMENT 1: Winston’s Turnovers Doom Bucs Abroad
Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston threw a career-high five interceptions and fumbled twice against Carolina in a 37-26 rout by the Panthers. The loss drops the Bucs to 2-4 on the year, while a four-game winning streak by the Panthers has them at 4-2 and ready to challenge New Orleans for NFC South supremacy.
Winston just can’t shake the fact that he’s been a turnover machine dating back to his days at Florida State.
Winston’s first pass in the United States since joining the NFL after being drafted first overall in 2015 was a pick-six. On Sunday in London, his first European pass attempt was also intercepted, although James Bradberry didn’t take this one back for a Panthers touchdown. It just set up a field goal to give Carolina a 3-0 lead – a lead the Panthers would never relinquish. Carolina led 34-10 early in the fourth quarter before Tampa Bay rallied when it was too late.
Some things never change.
