Winston leads the way in Bucs preseason victory


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WFLA) – Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston put on a show Saturday night at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, hitting 13 of 18 pass attempts for 226 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Bucs 30-14 win over the Tennessee Titans. Winston played in the second quarter, leading the Bucs to a 91-yard scoring drive and a two-minute drill scoring drive before the half. 

Bucs quarterbacks completed passes to 14 total players, including receivers battling for possibly two spots in the regular season rotation. Rookies Justin Watson and Sergio Bailey caught touchdown passes. The four quarterbacks used by the Bucs combined for 365 yards passing.

After the game, News Channel 8’s Dan Lucas was joined by Trevor Sikkema of to discuss an amazing night for the passing game but a win that cost some injuries including running back Charles Sims III and defensive backs M.J. Stewart and Jordan Whitehead.

News Channel 8, Your Official Bucs Station, will broadcast the fourth and final preseason game on Thursday, August 30, at 7:30 p.m.
